If they take Bluebrid cards perhaps you can have a friend in the u.s. load the funds and then give them the number.You will not need an actual account for the card but it functions like a credit card.Some places don't take them since they are American Express I belive.

Congratulations on your marriage! Have you tried looking this up in the policies of DOC? I do know that there is usually a dollar limit imposed--and it would be a good idea to look into this before securing one. Hopefully someone will be along soon with an answer!

Hi Kimmy
I have moved your post to this thread.

Yes you can send him a wedding ring but you have to do it thru a vendor, like walkenhorts or access.

They are plain bands with no stones.
(I cant remember if they sell gold ones or only silver........)
You would have to know his ring size.

Also, if he's in reception you cant send him anything (except paper, stamps, envelopes etc)
Once he's mainlined you can send him a quarterly package.

hope that helps

oh and congrats!!

Default Mailroom phone #, banned magazines, limit on mags?

My son wants me to send him a "girlie" magazine, like Show Magazine. I found a site for inmate magazines and they said to be sure and call the mailroom of the prison to make sure it is allowed. Does anyone know the phone number for the SQ mailroom? Do you know which mags are banned? I thought I read they can only get two magazines. Does anyone know if that's accurate?

marie, check this link for phone numbers
http://www.prisontalk.com/forums/sho...38&postcount=3

As far as Show Magazine, I asked my hub if he ever saw that one while in, and he said no. Never heard of it.
He also told me that a few times he didnt get his Mens Health magazine because of the articles in it. (WTF?)
One time there was an article that had information on a Martial Art. They wouldnt give him that issue.


So if there is nudity, violence or some other no no thing, they wont give him the magazine.
He told me Maxim would go thru.

Thank you for the link and your response. I was about to send one issue as a test but after I saw the shipping charge, I decided I should try to find out, rather than lose money.

Usually within a week. Walkenhorst is fastest, they are located in Napa so even without paying the rush fee it only takes 1-2 days to SQ. Once a package arrives the prison is pretty quick to get it out to the line so they don't have big piles of packages accumulating.

So the only way i can order from Union is to call in my order? I don't know for sure what i want to order, he sent me a couple things that he would like but i would kind of like to see more of whats available. Can we only send a package once a quarter or can i order a little now and a little towards Christmas?
Thanks
