Franklin CI phones - having trouble calling the facility
I am getting more irrated every time I try to call up to Franklin CI. I called this morning to talk to my BF's classification officer. She was in a meeting and the lady I spoke to asked to call back around 1:30. I have now been trying to call for almost 1/2 hour. The phones either ring busy when I call off a landline or I get a message staying the number I am trying to call is not available when I call from my cell. Does anyone know if this happens alot with this facility? It is my first time having problems and it had to be on a day when I have questions to ask for my BF's parents.
Finally got thru at 4:40 to be informed to call back in a few mins because the classification office line was busy. Called back at 4:45 and spoke to someone in the office that informed me that his classification officer was in a meeting and to call back on Tuesday. Grrr......
I have been having a problem with phone service to Franklin for the last 2 weeks. I have tried to call the main number 4 times, either it would not connect or a recording would come on stating the phone call could not be conneted. I also tried to call my son's CO, but she hasn't answered her phone.

I got the your phone call can not be connected as dialed recording too. I even checked the weather radar to see if they were having a storm up there - nope they weren't. When I finally got thur, the lady didn't know anything about the phones not working right. Guess that is what you get when you put a facility out in the middle of NOWHERE! I thought where I live is in the boonies - but at least I am withing 15-20 mins from a decent sized town and hotels.
I am going to start calling bright and early Tuesday morning! And continue to call until I get to talk to her. Since it is my early day at work, I only work until 12 on Tuesdays, I can call all day long. I have a feeling that by the time my BF gets out of there next year, they will be tired of hearing from me.
My BF got the paperwork last Wednesday that I have been approved for visitation!! Yeah!! It would have been nice if they would have told him closer to the day it came thru - that was the 8th! But the good thing is that I am planning my trip up to Franklin for this coming weekend!! Any suggestions for hotels or what to wear or bring?
Be very careful with classification at Franklin, they told my husband quickly that he had better tell me not to call up there asking them questions or it would fall back on him. They get an attitude quick. I have found it a lot easier to call central classification with any questions. Do not make classification angry or your loved one will pay for it here!
They can never take him out of my heart
Thanks Tims. The last time I called up there to check on my app was June 6th. Was told still waiting. My BF called on June 14th and said I was approved. The paper he got said I was approved on the 8th. Two days after I called and two days before the 30 day mark. Makes me wonder....
But atleast I finally got approved and I am headed up there this weekend.
Vistation this weekend went good. I only made it up there for Sunday thou. Guards were nice and I didn't have any problems. Being my first visit, I thought it would take longer to get in but only took about 5 mins.
cinjo im glad you visit went good! i havent been able to visit since aug but hopefully next wknd i will be able too. they arent too bad about the clothes thing but im always worried they will say something but they havent. did you guys get a pic? the last cpl of times I was there, there was always issues with pictures. the whole phone thing never happened wit me but if i called his CO and she wasnt be there i wld talk to another CO and ask question, but ive never had a problem wit his CO and asking so many questions i guess it just depends on the CO idk.
