Default Rumours the tablets are coming back ?

We have been hearing rumours that the tablets are being reissued in January. Has anyone else heard the same? Apparently new tablets but new security upgrades.

Andrew says GTL were in last week fixing the Wi-Fi network and some of the guys were talking to the technicians and asking if they were getting the tablets back. The technicians said yeah but they didn't know when. But probably early next year.
If it's true.....I CANNOT wait!!!!! I miss his tablet :-)

In talking with DOC rep I was told there is no plan to bring them back anytime soon, however, they are searching for a new vendor.

I've also heard that new governor will be appointing new executive director of DOC and him/her will be deciding several issues including tablets.

Like everything else with DOC, I don't believe the rumors until I see paper work.

I have heard so many rumours since it began. I even heard that some facilities had already started returning them. But that wasn’t true. Let’s hope they do! It’s been a long six months without!! The GTL technicians saying that sounds promising! If they are looking for another vendor why are GTL fixing the WiFi? Let’s hope!!!

I guess who knows its hard to predict anything with the DOC. My love reckons thats the tablets should be back in January. He apparently heard that from CO.

I really miss those tablets , calls whenever we want and for an hour a time ,what bliss.

Yes I miss the tablets to. We got spoiled! They took the video visit kiosk out of my husband's facility last week and put phones in the place of them. They were told there would be no more video visits.

So many different things happening . We just all got to wait and see. Not so worried about video visits although they would be great. I miss the long calls when we want them and the messages.

Yup well there was a slight downside my love was virtually living on ramen as he refused to go to chow as that was the only time we got to be alone when his celly was at lunch or dinner.
I miss our long chats on a Saturday night way into Sunday morning talking about everything and nothing and laughing about all kinds of crazy. Being comfortable enough to talk about everything. 20 mins on the pod phone is cool but its never enough.

Well my love has continued to pester the CO's about the tablets and has now been told the new tablets have been delivered and are awaiting wifi security upgrades.
Who knows? Lets hope its true.

I was in la vista when they took the tablets. GTL and the COs said they were taken for security reasons. They were easily hackable to get the real internet and offenders were sharing/selling pins. The plan was always to fix the issues and get tablets back. GTL fixed the video visit phones at lvcf so they make calls and the calls are an hour. I hope they don’t do away with video visits but I’m very excited tablets are coming back. My husband is in now for at least a year.

I am wondering if we will get the credits back! I had over 80 when it went and my fiancé had about 30 I had sent him (I was having trouble with my debit card and bought loads just in case!) Another issue I noticed with GTL is that they have taken the credit on my phone numbers! One had $19 on it and it has changed to zero! We use his pin debit because the calls are cheaper but had left credit on advance pay for emergencies. I should call them but I find them so frustrating. I swear they drag people in off the street every day to work because no one seems to know what they are talking about!

It seems like my kids got refunded for credits when they took the tablets. Actually it was a few days before they took our tablets. GTL also refunded offenders for music and games but we had to kite the dates and ask for a refund.
