Did you try emailing them?

Maybe try calling a number with 1 digit off and see if that's an extension there and if you can then get transferred to the right person. Never hurts to try.

Otherwise, maybe try calling the main BOP number, but that's probably even less likely to have any luck.

Remember the BOP is affected by the government shutdown. So that is probably the reason why you cant get through

So I just did this and someone actually answered! But refused to transfer me to where I needed and insisted there was someone to answer the main line....even though Ive been calling for hours, sigh.

yes, you're probably right. but the main line of the entire prison should have someone to answer....eventually, right? ive never had a problem in the past getting thru.

You would think so. I read an article that said since the shit down alot of BOP prisons have had major staff shortages. Some have had to cancel visits until further notice etc..... so I bet thate going to be the excuse why they havent been answering. It's not fair to families but of o was forced to work without pay I wouldnt care about answering the phones either. It's not right at all. Something has to give and we are all affected by this crap in one way or another. I hope you finally get through. Or we can all just flood the email saying ANSWER THE PHONE...

Sadly, NO that is not right. The not answering happens often even when there is not a federal government shut down.

I do not agree with the BoP, but I am stating a fact - answering phones is a low priority.
