I haven't personally gotten my SO a tablet but I have heard that they do exist. I'd check with the folks who run JPay, I believe they have a tab and they'd be able to tell you if their tablet is authorized at his prison.

Your fiance will have to order the tablet from his commissary list. I don't know if it is available to him at this time since he is waiting on transfer to his "home" prison.

But here is the link to the DOC website with the commissary lists for the inmates.

I was told told tablets are around 250 and my husband is also going to be getting one but is waiting to go to his home prison. And after March 14th jpay isn't going to be the one we have to use so they might not know much about the tablets they'll be able to buy.

I think he said that the emails is being taken over by gtl and the tablets are through them too I just can't figure out how to get the info on them. I would like to know if they are really worth before I spend that kind though. If I do get on I probably won't get it till he does go to his home prison. Granted camp hill ever transfers him it's been almost a.month since he has been classified lol

With tablets they'll eventually be able to email back though! Do you know how long his visiting list took to be approved?

I think what these tablets are is "JPay Players." Folks can download music to them, read their emails, and compose emails offline. Then to send the email, or to get music tracks, they plug into a kiosk.

If you go to the JPay site, you can look up the services JPay offers at your LO's location. For instance, my buddy is in Louisiana State Penitentiary (Angola) and JPay reports LSP Angola has 4 JPay lobby kiosks (where if you're visiting you can put money on their books, etc) and 59 JPay Inmate kiosks where they can log in to read your emails and reply, or plug their JPay Player in to download your emails, or load music, etc.

Alas, I'm unsure of the cost of a JPay Player.

Hope this helps. :)

This thread is about tablets, not visiting. Let's stay on-topic.

miranda0304 03-13-2016 07:30 AM

It's really that big of a deal to ask the user who created the thread a question about something we've already talked about? Haha.

amanda840 03-13-2016 07:59 AM
