Default Rumor: Inmates have phone access on JPay player?

There's rumor that inmates at Ross and a couple other Ohio prisons have phone access on their Jpay players. Is this true or just prison gossip?

I would be inclined to believe this is prison gossip. There are no phones on JPay players.

Once upon a time, there may have been pay phones in county jails, but in this day and time, that has gone by the wayside.

If any inmate has a phone in his cell, it's probably illegal as hell. No prison allows inmates to have phones in their cells.

Interesting conversation as in the UK at newer prisons inmates have phones in their cells and can phone out until 10pm at night as long they have money on their books. The calls are monitored just the same as the general dayroom phones.

My son keeps telling me inmates are getting their own phones through Jpay and it's going to be in all Ohio prisons before the end of 2018. That would be great because I know the few phones available for inmates to make calls are controlled by gang members. He hasn't been able to call me for years now b/c of this situation. he isn't afraid but he doesn't want to get into a fight over a phone call. Luckily I am able to visit every Friday and we send messages through Jpay.

Thats actually not true in some states where inmates have GTL tablets they can use their tablets as phones and can phone from their cells or wherever they happen to be during certain hours. I speak to my love one in his cell every day and we get to one hour calls.

I dont know about jpay tablets but its certainly a possibility if the prison has wifi installed.

Yeah the place he is at is finally getting the GTL tablets they can make calls on. I found it wasn't a rumor. Still have a couple weeks yet though.

The GTL tablet phones are good but calls can drop in and out according to the strength of the wi fi signal. However it means no more phone queues and longer calls and you can have calls at times convient to you both.

Apparently they’re getting phones in their cells at Lebanon within the next few months. The phones are currently GTL (queues are crazy) and the tablets are JPay. So not sure who these phones will be contracted to.

My baby has one of those tablet phones at Toledo. He can call between 6am till 11pm and if they do a prepaid debit call they can talk for an hour straight each time he calls. I love being able to talk to him anytime of the day and also on connect network you can request a phone call and it sends a message telling him to call you which gets sent instantly. Only issue is we go through 10-20 dollars a day on phone calls because we talk so much but it's so well worth it! You can have a lot of fun phone calls!!

That would be amazing! My man in in Arizona and we only get snail mail 15minute calls when he can get outside on the Rec yard. IF I’m lucky we can sometimes talk 30mins-1hr. A tablet would be life changing there!

So J told me that they are definitely going to be getting tablet phones within the next few months at Lebanon. They will be GTL though, not Jpay, I believe. Not sure if that means GTL will replace Jpay completely? Seeing as the phones are already GTL.
Yeah, It will give less control to the gangs as they definitely control the phones. Also less queues and if they are Close management (which J now is since he moved to Leb) they aren’t restricted to having to use their rec time waiting to use the phone!

FCI Sandstone also has in-cell phones, but only in the hole. I thought that was kinda funny.

So J just got his GTL cellphone. My God, It’s awful!!! I don’t know whether to laugh or cry!
The interference is so loud. Maybe/hopefully it will improve.
