The TDCJ website has been updated to say 500 minutes and my Securus account shows a $200 limit. It is true!

Does anyone know if this takes into effect now or next month? I'm thinking now since it's increased on the securus website.

I think now since it is already showing up on website and when your LO calls the system tells them how many minutes they have left so they will be able to tell immediately as well.

I did not find this information anywhere on the tdcj website. On the securus website it said my spending limit was 200$ but nowhere on the site did it say the minutes were 500...if you found it on the internet could you please post a link?
