When you order the phone line, the process is automated by software to the utility for procurement. Once the utility issues the phone line, there are no refunds from them, therefore we cannot issue refunds either. The no refund policy is displayed in several places on the site before you sign up so that there are no misunderstandings. We go so far to say, "if you buy the service on Monday and the inmate gets released on Tuesday, there are noRead more
It's not the institution being civil, it's the population make-up. Neither have reports of unrest or violence that would give them a bad grade. The idea of being incarcerated for anyone that hasn't is frightening. The shows on TV edit their programs to show the worst and most shocking. Don't let your imagination get the best of you. Once they get settled and into a routine, get a feel for the other inmates, they tend to fit right into theRead more
You have to call the institution and speak to the "case manager" or "counselor" that oversees your inmate's programming. They can unblock the line for you.Read more

So, essentially I had four profiles withRead more
You have to call the Clerk of the Court where the charges were filed. This is public information, this is where attorneys go to get the facts of the indictment, nature of the charges, etc.Read more
Inmates can buy longjohns-type shirts or sweatshirts at the commissary.Read more
Inmates are supplied with the essentials which include bedding and one blanket. This is not a hotel, this is a prison. They cannot call housekeeping and get another pillow or blanket. The only way is to barter for one with another inmate - there is always an inmate in every facility that is very plugged in and somehow has access to all kinds of contraband (for a fee). This scenario is a real possibility. My first week in federal prison, I wasRead more
