Default 3 way calling and lost calling privileges

My husband's phone privilages has been took away for 180 days because my sister called me on a 3 way. I was in the hospital the day after our daughter was born. He did not tell her to call. It will help alot on the phone bill though. He is at Camp Branch, So don't make any 3 way calls if your loved one is at Camp Branch. When he was at Pugsley 3 way calls were ok. I dont know how they monitor the calls.

Sorry to hear you lost the phone calls. At least, you have visits and letters. Sometimes when we talk a recording comes on that says "no third party calls are allowed" and I'm not even trying to make a third party call.

Hang in there.

every phone call that is made from an inmate phone is monitored, the usually record all the calls, but there is a way they can detect it when you click over on the 3-way call. even if you click over on call waiting it will say it is a 3 way call my man almost lost his privledges cuz i clicked over on call waiting, so just be careful.

Unfortunately, Michigan doesn't allow three-way calls or call forwarding or any of those things, but it's just a matter of someone noticing it.

I'm sorry you lost your calls, but at least it's only temporary. That's better than it could be.

Hang in there!!

Per the policy making three way calls at any MDOC facility will cause an individual to lose phone priveledges.
