I found a long distance chart on the AT&T website and found that a call from 972-287-**** to our Denton County number is long distance. They determine by the area code and prefix. There were some prefixes in the 940 area that are considered local but the number we had was not. A quick call to T-mobile and they had it changed within minutes. Even waived the $15 fee to change numbers. A small blessing Thanks for your help and advice!

Yes, in bop owned federal prisons calls to cell phones are permitted. The same recipient can even have more than one approved phone number too.

Does anyone know if the visitation process is the same, at Seagoville, as other facilities? I read something on the Seagoville site that mentioned "already being in the BOP system" and wondered if they accept previous facility applications? Sure would be nice since my LO has been transferred there.

If you are immediate family, I do not believe so. It also may depend on his counselor. I printed a form off online and filled it out and sent it in to seagoville as soon as my LO was transferred just to be proactive. It was a good thing I did- bc his counselor said I had to submit a new one. But I was approved within a week.
Also- inmates get two visits a month and depending on his building #, visits are every other week. There’s also a ‘list’ that people started to get in line for visits in the morning. People start signing up on this list at like midnight at this gas station down the street!!! Just an FYI- bc when I started going, I had no idea about this crazy list!!

bop counselors are able to import visiting lists from previous bop owned prisons. Some do, which means that new applications aren't required, but others don't.

Can you tell me where I might find the form? Am thinking I could print one off and just send it to my friend!

Here's the bop visitor's application form. Some counselors require that they be mailed directly to them, and not be routed through the inmate.

Did you ask your LO about sending the form before you did send it? Thanks to you, and fbopnomore, I was able to print off the form and will have it filled out tonight. My friend is calling later and I may ask him if he's ok with me just getting it in the mail tomorrow.

Thanks again to you both!

The one I printed off worked. They are the same. Just make sure you mail it to the staff mail P.O. Box and address it to his counselor.

But the form has a place for the inmate to sign. How can I mail it to his counselor without his signature?

The process depends on the prison, and the counselor. If the counselor requires that the form be sent directly to them (not all do) they probably call the inmate in to sign it.

Find out the procedure for that prison first.
