HI My boyfriend is in WCI. He had to wait until August 1st to add my phone number to his list. Does anyone know how long after submitting my phone number it will take before he will be able to call?

Default WCI visitations

My boyfriend is at WCI. He's been there for a little over a month. I haven't heard from him in 2 weeks and I wanted to go see him. I'm not sure if Im on his visitation list. I called but they can't give out that information. Should I ust wait a little longer I don't want to make the long drive for nothing.

Can you write him and ask if he's turned in his visiting and phone lists and if they have been approved? Might save you a long drive up there only to be dissapointed.

My guy is at WCI also. No they can't give out that info. Only the inmate can find out. If you'd have went before his first 30 days were up, they'd have let you in to visit. The visiting list wouldn't have mattered in the first 30 days.
That's a long drive to get turned away. I'd write him and ask him.

Hi,

If you go to that web site and put in his name or birthdate you should be able to pull up his info.

My man is at WCI and they are strict up there. Make sure you on on the list and don't wear anything revealing becuase they will not let you in.

Good Luck and Welcome

Ms. J

Most likely because of the Officer being killed at MHC. I think all of DOC is on lockdown.

Does anyone know about the telephone system at WCI. I called T-netix to try to set up an account and they said that institution is not on their list for service.

Default telephone service

Yes somebody gave me the wrong information but when I called up to the facility I got everything straight. Apparently T-netix does not service all facilities.

I wanted to know if they will let him know that I opened the account. Do them send them a password or number to use when he calls me.

I think he does have a code he will use for long distance calls,each number is given a different code.I am local,so we dont have to go throught all that.But I do know for sure that sometimes it takes awhile for the $ to show up on his account after we put it on.Last month it took 3 weeks!!

Default phone calls

when I set it up they told me it would be activated within 24-48 hours. I'm not sure how long it takes but he hasn't called so many the money is not available yet.
