Federal prisoners using the bop's inmate telephone system get 300 minutes/month, 400 in Nov. & Dec. Their minutes and commissary spending limit rolls over to the next month on the same day, the fifth number in their ID#, (xxxxX-xxx) times 3, plus one, so if the number is 5, he will get new limits on the 16th of each month.

amazon by far. I have been using them 4years. You can get books,graphic novels,pop up greeting cards, and magazine subscriptions. But the mags take 6 weeks to receive. The book orders are received quicker once you get stated. Pigeonly.com is awesome to send pictures, postcards and get a local number for your lo to call which makes for cheaper phone calls for him. Western union to send money the easiest way and they can get the transfer in a couple hours.

Hey, it's rumored that they'll be down for two weeks.
Should be over soon.

Received letter mailed 26th, said they spoke about the Lockdown could last as long as 4 weeks.

But all this speculation doesn't lead anywhere, gotta be patient. I have a feeling they'll be back soon and if not....well, lockdowns are also done for THEIR safety, I'm fine with it.
Hang in there!

A lady on another forum received a call, she said they are out for 1,5 hours today. So, we are getting there slowly...

The "visits cancelled until further notice" banner, which usually signals a lockdown, is only posted on the fci Medium prison web page, not the fci Low or on the USP.
https://www.bop.gov/locations/institutions/bmm/

Lockdowns sometimes are lifted in stages over a couple of days by letting inmates out of their cells for short periods at first.
