Talking USP High Florence: How long before he can call or email?

Does anyone know how long it takes for first contact to be allowed? My guy was jus sent to Florence - High, I assume within the last couple days, and I don't know how long I should expect to wait for a call or email. Any help/info would be greatly appreciated - Thanks

If this is his first bop prison, or the first one where he will have access to the inmate telephone system, two things have to happen before he can call you. It can be as quickly as a few days, but one week is more likely. He will have to meet with his counselor, give them a list of every phone number he will be able to call, and the counselor has to activate him on the Florence ITS computer (however long that takes). He then needs to receive his 9 digit phone pin number in the mail.

If he had bop phone access somewhere else, the counselor can import his phone & visiting lists from his previous prison, and his pin number will never change.

If he uses the phone & his pin # to transfer money from his inmate commissary account to his ITS phone account to purchase prepaid phone minutes, local calls to Florence will be 6 cents/min, and long distance will cost 23 cents/min. All collect calls are 25 cents/min with no additional connection fees. Your phone will have to be able to accept collect calls.

Maximum call length is 15 minutes with a wait time of at least 30 minutes between calls.

I was mistaken about the ITS long distance call rate. it's 21 cents/min (not 23).

ITS Call Type Per minute rate
Direct Dial - Local $0.06
Direct Dial - Long Distance $0.21
Direct Dial - Canada $0.35
Direct Dial - Mexico $0.55
Direct Dial - International $0.99
