Default How many phone calls do you get?

I've tried to explain it to my husband that the amount we talk on the phone isn't normal. we talk like 4 times a day. he said all his friends talk that much- somehow i find that hard to believe. i think he just doesnt want me to start restricting him. so i thought i would ask how many phone calls do you get in a day? im going to print this out and send it to that fool! thanks!

It all depends, sometimes twice a day sometimes 10 times a day if we are in a good conversation. If I have one or two calls left I tell him and then we ride it out for the whole day and night till 11pm! I love talking to him, and he's a talker so my phone bill is sky high, right now I'm 75.00 in the hole so were not talking till I get some more money to put on there.

we only talk about 2-3 times a week.

if i was rich, i could put more money on the calls to talk more..
but since i live in a different state, they charge up the ass.
grrr. we still write each other a lot, and it gives me something to look forward to all week.

Anywhere between 2-10 times a day. Its bad when The higher ends are on the days that I'm not at work. It seems like I've had block on lately becasue everytime I pay the bill-----------we're talking too much again.

He calls a few times a week and sometimes he will call twice those days. He doesn't like to run up the phone bill. I try to get him to call more cause I hate not talking to him but he trys to save me money.

My Husband Calls During The Week An Average Of 4-6 Times A Day ( He Has Really Cut Down I'm So Proud Of Him ). But Because Of The Prison Being Short Of Staff They Dont Get Out There Cells To Much On The Weekend So It's Like 1-2 Times A Day

About twice a day, until his minutes run out. Normally they run out before the month is over :L0(

It really depends on what is going on. If one of us is having a hard day or there is an issue going on that I need his input on, it can become as much as 11 or 12 in one day. On a regular day we usually run between 2 and 3.

When he had to call me collect in UK from PA it was only once a month because it was $90 a call, now we have a different phone service,so he calls once,sometimes twice a day.He is only allowed two calls a day,I wish it was more sometimes.

If your budget won't allow for all the calls, then tell him so and he will have a choice to (1) use up all the calls in one or two days, or (2) spread the calls out over the month. His choice! I don't believe that "most" of the other guys are on the phone many times a day. If they are, they aren't calling just one person but may be calling several family members. Sure they get lonesome, but you're working hard to pay bills, so he needs to write more and call less.

Doc calls me five to seven times a week - and now and then an extra call if he wants something. However, those calls are expensive and I'm not going into debt or get bad credit over the phone bill.

We talk once a week. On Saturday night. I am out of state and the calls are over the top expensive. I would like for him to call more, but he won't. He is a very rsponsible. More than me! LOL He says we can't do that. He is right. But still......I'd love to talk to him everyday.

It all depends. Sometimes a day we can have several like 5-6 and then some days its only 1-2 times. I know we used to blow it up back in the day but with all the problems of payments not getting processed and all that stuff HE(its not me lol) wants to space em out. He looks out for our calls and he stays on top of em. Sometimes Im like "baby its my phone grr"

Well where he is... he only gets 2, 15 minute phone calls a day. So we're not as fortunate as some of you... but since he calls home and what not. I won't get my phone stuff set up for another 2 weeks so... when that happens... we'll probably talk 2x a week... maybe more... just depends.

Quite often he'll call 2/3 times a day -he has called 5 times before now.But then,he might go a week before calling me again.Plus, now he has set something up with a friend so lucky,lucky me-we get even more calls!!

At my husband's facility he can only call 4 times a month, 20 minutes per call. Sigh...

right now it's a couple times a week. We've gone months without talking on the phone, though. Some prisons have different regulations on who can use the phone and when.....a couple times a week is like heaven to me right now. I don't think I would talk 4 times a day. I have to travel 3,000 miles to visit him and only get to go maybe 4x a year at best, talking all that time would prohibit visiting.....

well i talk to my man about 1 or 2 times a day something, and when i'm really feeling crappy, he calls 3-4 times. hes really been there for me, cuz he knows its hard for me to be without him, i don't know how much the phone bill is since his mom is who pays for them, so shes a god sent i swear. she understands what we are going threw. she gets to visit with him and i still dont so she understand that thats our only form of communication.

and to whoever made this thread, tell your mom that just because his friends are calling soo much to their girls dont mean hes gotta do it too. he wouldn't jump off a bridge if they did it would he? so why is he trying to be like them? another thing is that he should understand your situation, it aint cheap and if you don't got the money to pay for his calls he should understand, everything should be about understanding each other.

i started this thread and my mom is dead so i dont know where you're getting my mother?! My husbands says alot of people talk as much as we do and i didnt believe him. i do have the money to pay for his calls..but i thought spending 500- 600 dollars a month was alot and according to him everyone talks that long and judging by the responses on here hes right..lol he's not trying to be like anyone. i just had a hard time believing a ton of people spend that much on phone bills.
