Something’s up with it, maybe they’re having trouble with connectivity or the conversion process. Well the last time mine called on sat evening he said they’ve been cutting their dayroom from an hour to fifteen minutes. Same shit yesterday, and he didn’t call again either out today. Ppfff so frustrating hes absolutely miserable.

I know dixon has been having issues with the tablets - they still don’t have them. They were told they haven’t gotten them yet due to a glitch. Who knows what glitch and when they’re gonna fix it.

I think the tablets are made by GTL and as such, I don't think you'd be able to buy them through JPay.

Oh really?? That makes sense, there’s a thing on jpay that says “buy a tablet for your loved one”. Well he can just do it Thursday if it’s available.

I don’t think they use jpay in Illinois in any capacity, do they? Maybe for $?

But yeah gtl and jpay are competing companies, so I think because the tablets are gtl, they’re only for sale through gtl

To send commissary money yes. I was looking online and you’re right it doesn’t make any sense they’d use the jpay tablets anymore becuz all the messaging is on gtl.

Hey ladies,

Any updates on the tablet situation? No new updates regarding tablets at Menard. My man told me that they are no longer selling MP3 devices so hopefully that means that the tablets will be available for purchase soon.

Suspended purchasing at Pinckneyville. No reason why.

Nothing new for Menard either. Last thing he heard was the first part of August to start purchasing. But on a high note....visitation opens up on Monday after being on lockdown for nearly 2 months!

Have you heard anymore about tablets?? Nothing at pettyville, they haven’t said a word to the inmates. Just “I don’t knows”.

Nope! No tablets yet. It’s been a month now since he purchased it and has not heard anything about when they will receive them. It’s a bunch of bullshit. IDOC employees don’t believe in answering questions.

I did get to visit Monday and I went again on Thursday. They came off LD on Monday but while we were visiting on Thursday a fight broke out on one of the yards and they went back on partial lockdown. It was so good to see him after almost 2 months!
