Texas Prison and Jail Visitation, Phones, Packages & MailTopics / Information relating to the Texas Department of Corrections and local / county Jail visitation, phone calls, mail, inmate care packages, etc.
There are stickies at the top of the Texas Prison Phone Issues - General Q&A forum which is where I am moving your post to. There is a web site (link below) for registration but I suggest calling the toll free number (also listed below) from your home phone (must be a land line at the address shown on your ID and on his visitation list and held in your name) and doing whatever gymnastics you must do with the phone menu system to get a human being to answer (like answering NO to all the questions it asks about is this what you want to do). If all is in order and you talk to them while you are on your home phone then they will approve you on the spot. Applications online or using the menu system leaves you with no idea when or if you are approved.
