nycHarry: Most of your advice may be accurate for NY prisons, but it isn't for federal prisons where this guy is now a new inmate. Yes he may have access to his money relatively quickly; some bop commissaries even allow newbies to shop out of sequence as soon as they are issued their ID card by writing "first time shopper" on their commissary order. But phone and email access require a process that often can take up to a week regardless if they have money or not. I described it in #2 above.
