Default calls

I'm getting calls on a regular basis. He hasn't said that anything else has been happening there to restrict calls - but he did say there are a lot of inmates being moved out - maybe your guy is one of them.

Check the inmate locator just to see if he's still there - not sure how long it takes for it to register/update when they move though.

Default Re: Joanne Valley state phone calls

Unfortunately Joy he has to take that up with the man on the phone i front of him. He has to be careful who he get i line behind because the calls 15 minute time is not controlled by the phone co or the guards it is all an honor system with other inmates. My so calls me and sometimes he says he has only 10 min because the guy in front of him went over his allotment of ect..it is very difficult for them to sing up and get their calls so be patient he is there is no one to change that right now..hey bbe glad they are getting a microwave in the day room first time sinse the prison opened. and they can have hobbys from fire mountain. Ever since they went from women to men its all changing and for the good. chin up my lady its better than it was. Love karen

If they dont release them out to the day room on time and he signed up for the time it is too bad, if he is at school or visiting or at an appointment he misses the time for sign ups, and more than half the time I dont even know when his phone call appointments are. I dont want to just vent I want to know who I can take this up with.

Default calls in days

Yes I recieved a call from my son this morning. jan 8 2014. He was transferred to chowchilla in Nov 2013 from Ione Mule creek before that High dessert before that pleasant valley before that Old folsom before that colinga and so forth so now they lowered his level to II. and with the redistribution Gov Brown is doing many are getting sent out to places like Mc Farland. He has something on his books like blindness which is why he is staying. but to answer your question yes he can make calls if he is not working or in a class

Has anybody had any trouble with phones being down, or have the phone cut off in the middle of your call for no reason?

Sorry to hear that . It's hard enough when they are working with all the interruptions and the delay that they always have. Hope they get it fixed soon!

Default Phone Times/ Passing Info

So I just got a phone account setup and am wondering when people are allowed to call? Is it every day?

Also, what is the fastest way to send my number to my man besides overnighting some mail?

Also, regarding 4th of July visiting:

All the appointments are taken, but it's a unique opportunity for me to visit from Tucson, and so I'm wondering if I would still get to see him a good chunk of time if I went Sat/ Sun/ Mon, or would it be too crazy?

Would our visit be exempt from termination because I'd be driving so far and haven't visited in many months? Does the exemption rule apply the for the first visiting day and the following or just the first one?

Would it be better to just show up Sun/ Mon because there may be fewer folks?

Thanks,
Claire

I've been getting regular calls, and was there to see my husband both yesterday and today. I didn't hear about any widespread issues going on right now that would affect phone calls.

Thanks Cheri
He was able to call on Friday I guess signing up for the phone is really becoming difficult
I was at visit this weekend as well...(we visit the same side)

Thanks for replying... I wish the VSP thread was more active.
