Default Phone call time

Is anyone else having a problem with phone time being shorter than it should be. We were on the phone today and got the 60 second warning after 8 minutes instead of 15

Maybe the issue could be within the service. Since he's able to call you back.


I remember when me and him are talking on the phone. The phone will hang up in between our conversations. We didn't receive the 60 second warning. He just had to call me back again. He thought I was hanging up on him and I thought the same. This hasn't happen in awhile though, but it used to happen sometimes during our phone calls. Now I'm having this problem where he will call, the phone will ring and hang up. Then the phone will ring again and I'm able to pick up the phone. It's really weird and it happens each time he calls me now. My call log has two listings from him each time 1 where it's a missed call and the 2nd where I had picked up the phone. Both has the same direct timing as well. It's weird.

We used to get cut off randomly when he had the tablet phone. Now that he is on the pod phones its OK. Its very annoying though I think sometimes its the system.

I know when my hub was in, I started timing the calls.
They were always for 15 min, PLUS the time for the interruptions by the *operator*
So like maybe 15 min and 30 seconds.(I forget how long each break in by the operator took but the whole actual time we got to speak was 15 min)

My fiancee is at a state facility in PA. They use Securus.
Today, the call kept ending after 5 minutes, instead of 15. The first time, I thought maybe he called someone else before me but he said I was his first call. He called right back and it happened again, 5 minutes.
I called Securus and they said it seemed the facility set a 5 minute block. I called the facility and they were aware of the problem but said Securus need to send a tech to fix it.
I'm unsure who to believe. Will see what happens the next call.

I thought I was the only one who did this. When our calls started dropping, when he called I'd used a stopwatch to time them. When the message that plays halfway through the call to announce it was recording didn't play, the calls were 15 minutes and 45 seconds.
