yes, my husband was moved there a few days ago. As soon as I find any info out, I will post it.

I hate all this unknown and not knowing what to do.

Hello...My man has been there since October of 2008 as far as phone calls go...I'm not sure if they can call collect but my dude gets calling cards and calls me that way. Do you know how to put money on his books so he can buy cards? if not I will let you know how to do that The upside to this facility is they are allowed 30 min calls vs. 15 minute calls when he was in Winslow, AZ. Let me know if you have any other questions

You can also use PCS for putting money on the phone I have done it both ways with the phone cards and PCS and the phone cards are cheaper...by like a few dollars a call...so I would just send him the money and let him deal with getting cards...

I just added an Oklahoma # to my cell phone so hopefully it will make the calls cheaper. Right now it's $12 - such a rip off!!

That sucks about visitation - can you wear a jacket - it's cold there right now. I am taking my 2 kids out in a few weeks to visit. Do they have to be seated the whole time? They are 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 - they don't really sit for long. In AZ they let me bring in food and toys for the kids - do you think they will let me do this here? Is the visitation room just inside or can you go outside too?

I went in December and they didn't let us wear our jackets inside. There is no outside visitation and I wouldn't even think about bringing in food or drinks or toys for the kids. The upside is that the vending machines are a lot better, you can get milk for the kiddos. They have a lot of toys for the kids to play with, but they are pretty strict about the kids staying at your table.
Good luck.

They were so much stricter than Douglas - but not bad. They did let me bring in a sippy cup - after they realized that baby's can't drink out of milk bottles! I had to keep diapers in the lockers and then they would give me an attitude about letting me out to change them....whatever! The guards were much more relaxed in Douglas. I won't be bringing the kids again for awhile....it's boring for them and too expensive. The vending machines were way better than Douglas - I had grapes.
