Ladies - Saw this article about prison phone companies ripping us off. There may be hope in the form of new legislation - though I will believe it when I see it. If you can't read the article in the pic I attached, you can find it in the may 25tj edition of The Economist magazine.

I have not gotten a call since Sunday, they are not on LD but it may be related to the peaceful protest that I read about on this site that was supposed to take place on the 8th.

When you're setting up the account on offenderconnect.com, do you choose Californa DOC for HDSP?

Thanks! My friend's on C4, but obviously since my question, I haven't talked to him yet lol. I hope it's just temporary and they'll fix it.

Does anyone know anything good or bad about some of the other phone companies claiming to help? I see the adds on PTO about Tele Pigeon. It says $9.99 a month unlimited minutes. Do you also still have to have an offender connect account? I am spending about 150 a month for calls. I would like to spend less to send more for the quarterly package. Any help is appreciated.



Thanks,
Steph

I have offender connect i feel that' it's much cheaper,cuse u put on the account what u can afford. Each call is about 2.30 but then again it depends how many times he calls you..

Hello Everyone.

I'm hoping someone can help me, because although I was reading over the comments in the thread I am still very confused. My best friend is at HDSP, and recently asked for my number to try and call. However, it is my understanding that I needed an account, which I created through offender connect, like most of you were advising (thanks for the info) Anyway, if he were to call my cell phone, would I incur charges separate from what I have on the account? So I would have cell phone charges and the offender connect account? I don't know how this works exactly and I don't know how this works.

Any info would help out tremendously, thanks a lot

Talking Calls

I get calls everyday for sure, except Fridays when he calls his mom. If he can jump on a phone he will. Today he was able to call 3 times. I ended up calling Verizon and getting a Susanville number and our calls are now $1.53 for 15 minutes.

Hello, my man is at HDSP and im not sure if he is only able to call on certain days or if he is allowed to call every day. A friend of mine said they take turns with the upper and lower level guys. Wednesday, Friday and sunday for the bottom and Tuesday Thursday and Saturday for the top. Does that sound right?
