Hi Ladies,
I wanted to respond and comment a bit, well and day hi. I am a bit of a lurker lol right now as I jusr recently made a new PT page but I have been visiting the Federal system for about 7 yrs now so I am pretty in tune with their program and how it works. My fiance has been at BS for more than a decade so I can say that unfortuneatly this lockdown situation has always been very bad there. In fact as suprising as it may seem my honest opinion is that this warden in fact keeps them down for less lengthy periods than previous and tends to give more little "warning lock downs" of hours or half days than others which I think is a blessing. Although we as a couple agree that this has become just very difficult and we hope to leave BS soon.
So about email, no there is no monthly limit and LOL I would know because everyone knows I write a lot and LONG ones to my guy. But they do pay for them by the minute which is why it can be tough because if they are slower at reading or typing it can kind of get expensive. I think its like 10 cents a minute or less. Which still makes email more affordable than phone. However often there aren't chairs there and they stand to write or read, and the lines for email are still long. But we try to use both equally since phone runs out so fast! And isn't it great to just be able to express yourself to them when you feel like it! To me its the closest thing we have that lets us be like regular couples! There is a limit to their length, 10,000 characters but maybe only me reaches that!
Well just wanted to say hi. I mostly just read because my guy doesnt like me worrying about whats going on there too much but I wanted to write a little.

I'm stopping by to let you all know how my LO is doing. I talked to his aunt who received a letter from him yesterday and he told her that he was going to be in the hole for about 3-6 months which I think is crazy. He's doing not so good. He asked his aunt to pray for him to have continued strength, mentally and spiritually and I told her to tell him that I will pray for him as well. I'm hoping he will contact me very soon. By the way, the person that lets my LO use his email sent my message back there to him so I'm hoping my LO will contact me soon. Please continue to keep my LO and I in your prayers. I feel like this is going to be a really long road for us but I know we can pull through.

Unless it has changed, the inmate pays 5 cents/min whenever logged into the email system, to either read or write messages.

The federal prison's inmate telephone system forbids "call forwarding", and google voice is call forwarding. One member reported recently that her loved one lost all phone access for 6 months because of that. The inmate can ask what outside phone applications are allowed.

I was told that changing a cellphone number to one that is a local call from the prison is allowed.

For those of you living in US pigeonly. Ly is $7.99p/month for these money you get a local number so your inmate pays $18.00 p/m for his 300 minutes and also 20 photoprints that they send directly without charges! I pay $11.99 as I live abroad so it is a very good deal considering it is international calls!

The inmate is charged 6 cents/min for calls that are local to the prison, and 21 cents/min for all other calls within the US (long distance). The difference is 15 cents/min which is the maximum amount the inmate can save by calling a local phone number.
