He needs to go through Orientation/Fish Row... two to three weeks. Then, game on about when he can get on the phone. When my husband was there, it was mostly during the day and every two to three days on the phone. And then you go visit after that, too...

Thank you

I think it just depends as to how often they can call.

If they have day room or yard...and the phones are turned on/working...and if they can sign up.

Not much help...but that is the general idea.

Default Anyone having trouble receiving phone calls?

My son called last week, but it took 3 tries before we were connected. He called again last night and, even though we pushed "5" twice and then said "5" aloud, the recording continued and wouldn't connect us. I guess he finally gave up and didn't try to call a fourth time. It's completely frustrating since the calls are so infrequent as it is. I'm not sure if it's a problem with the phones at FSP or our phone. Has anyone had this problem lately?

We had this problem last week. I hit "5" and the calls were dropped. It's happened before ever couple months, but not often.

Wow - that was a quick response! Thank you! At least I know we aren't alone and, hopefully, the next time he calls it will go through. Thanks again!

I guess not many of you have loved ones in Folsom? My friend just got transferred here from San Quentin. I set up a GTL account - does anyone know how much per minute it costs?? I'm like 2 hours away from Folsom.
