Question Securus tech phone issues at Somerset?

Hey, Is anyone else experiencing connectivity issues with securus? I'm not sure whether its with the prison OR if its with securus, if so... Which facility is yours? Mine is at Somerset.. I'm trying to find out who i can contact to get this problem fixed. I keep getting the run around and we are wasting money on calls. Thanks!

They keep claiming they are fixing the phones, I pressed one today and the call just dropped, I know what you're saying about that lady, I can hear that annoying bitch's voice no problem. Just keep calling and complaining I guess, that's what I'm
Doing... its rough though he's losing it, there's already so much drama and arguing about the phone and now they gotta lock in at 830 instead of 845, like seriously? No wonder there's fights everyday ..

They were on lockdown in the morning, I got one very bad call after thier lunch.. it was so dumb, I could hear him and he couldn't hear me then it switched.. I'm waiting now too, but I'm sure they will be screwed up otherwise he would have called by now

Just got a call and it worked fine! So nice to have a normal convo!! Hopefully it lasts

I haven't got a call or email all day , and that sucks about your phone call , I am thinking my l/o must of went for his heart test today , they were hooking him up to machines while he slept to moniter his heart while he sleeps for 1-2 days, I thought it was supposed to be next week sometime but maybe cause of safety issues, they moved it to today ,ugh but hopefully when our loved ones call in the morning, the calls will be fixed , my fingers are crossed lol
