Have you called the visitation unit of where you got approved??? That would be my first step. Call the unit and let them know you've been approved for visitation but not phone approval. It could be that when they called you to verify that you want to recieve inmate calls you weren't home. I believe they try three times before who knows what happens. When you call they may just approve you for calls there, but if not ask what day they make calls for approval (that way you can watch out for the phone, they wont leave a voice message).

Once they call to verify you, it may anywhere for a few days to a week or two to get your number in DOC system. Once DOC calls to verify, call CBS and make sure your line is clear to accept incoming calls or if you need to set up a pre-paid account.

I hope this helps.

ALSO make sure they have the correct phone number! Myself and another woman were delayed because of the wrong # being input into the system ...

I just got my first call from my PP. He is in SMU II, and it took 2 months. They roll a cordless phone around, once a week, and there are about 20 guys.

If you want to get calls, ask your guy to put in a "change request". He'll need to know what phone number you want to recieve calls at. Within a few weeks give or take they should call you. If not and you really want them, you can call the visitation unit and ask what days of the week they do call verfication or check the status of your verification. It's much like trying to get approved for visitation
You can also ask the CO @ visit next time you go.

Oh I didn't realize you were international. I don't know if that's a whole nother ball game. I'm sure your guy can find out how those calls work. Good luck.

It works the same - just takes a bit longer as CBS will only accept US money orders for payment.
