Do not expect them to register the phone. However, the minute delay you encounter by having to wait does not impact his ability to call because he won't have his recording done for the better part of a month in most cases. And until that is done, he isn't going to be calling.

You can’t register it without a TDCJ number. Don’t worry, it shouldn’t take long for him to get one.

But it’ll still be a wait after the phone is cleared - he has to finish intake and his voice recognition has been done before he can call, which is usually somewhere around 30 days. As the holidays come, it may take longer. I believe my husband had his voice recording done the first week he was there, but he wasn’t able to call for 50+ days since he got there around the holidays and everything slowed down.
