I asked hubby about them yesterday. He said he had decided NOT to get one since they would probably charge an arm and leg to load music and/or books/movies. lol He had a valid point.

Okay, so I was somewhat wrong. The tablets aren't there yet BUT they were able to order them. He said he will get the one he ordered in the next 30-45 days.

Lol! I definitely see his point. But honestly I don't think it will be that expensive. I guess it just varies depending on what you are trying to buy.

Was just looking back over some of these threads. Hubby called me the night before they were able to order the tablets and, yep, he wanted one. Since his birthday is coming up, I got him one. He has been busy downloading music (price is like $1-$2 per song). All the free books, games, and classes will not load, so I don't know what is up with that. But, he is enjoying his music....and that is what is important.

the RMC got them last week and started distributing them. im hoping my man gets his before he transfers out to his main camp, because if they don't I was informed that they have to send them back to jpay and then jpay resends it. **fingers crossed its soon**

How long has he been at RMC? That isn't too far from where my hubby is. If I remember correctly, it took them about a week to pass them out to everyone.

it took mine about 60ish days from order to delivery and yes he got a tracking number but its usually a tracking number with a lot of other individuals not just his, so keep that in mind.. has he been moved since you ordered it? that's one of the reasons it took so long for mine to get his, RMC received it, the day before they could give it to him he was transferred to his home prison so they had to send it back to jpay and resend it to him at the new prison.

Really I thought it was every Week I called the Prsion about 2 weeks ago and spoke to property Staff they said they receive Every Week and they go To Property every Friday. I guess it depends on Facility.

Does anyone know if they will be expanding the video visits? One camp he was at they had it. Now they moved him again and it doesn't give me the option.
Anyone know what already comes on the tablet? My husband was talking about buying movies when he gets his. I didn't know they could do movies.

music, games, email, books, audio books.. that's what my man says is on his, i can ask if they can get movies on there. video visits they still have to log into the kiosk and it blocks the people off it around that time. the tablets don't have the ability for them yet. when we have video visits that's how he has to do it on his end.
