Default How many times does he call a week?

My man usually only calls once a week. This week I was pleasantly surprised by 6 phone calls. So I was just wondering how many phone calls y'all got per week.

I get more around the holidays, and right when he gets money added to his account. But other than that it's pretty limited. Sometimes 4 times a week, sometimes none. All depends. I love hearing his voice<3

We just got our calls back after 6 months. He used to call 15 times a day. But this time around he isn't able to call that much!!. So right now we have had 2-3 calls each day..

We have changed over the years, but the sparkle in your eyes is as bright as ever, and my love for you is even stronger. <3 A.P&A.G 4ever <3

My baby calls me 2 or 3 times a day 1hr 38 min each call. On Holidays we talk all day like 12 hrs. If I miss one of my calls I'm worried. He has me spoiled.

We probably talk like 7 times a day. I have to pay for them since he's in a county jail for now. At it does get expensive. But i'm so addicted to hearing his voice that money is just an object when it comes to it <3

My husband calls once a day and twice on the weekends or twice a day if there is no program! Sometimes I miss the back to back calls because sometimes 30 mins isn't always enough time but it could be worse!

Its hard to say. If we have $ on the phone, he'll call a lot. But calls are close to $4 each & it don't take long to burn up the $. So I add it when I can. He always says baby you take care of you & the kids & the home front first, don't worry about me. So he don't stress if there's no $ on phone.
But he did surprise me xmas morning with a call! Yay! Then tonight, he's called 2x's. Yippy yay!!!! Our calls go by so fast, cuz we're laughing the whole time. I can actually hear the smile on his face. Its amazing!!! Tells me quite often how happy I make him & we're gonna be good together once he's home & how much he loves me. Just made my night!!! All smiles & giggles here!!! So ready for our visit on Sunday!

Three times a week because we are not doing well financially. I wish we could afford more because I know my daughter is pretty bored and misses us real bad

usually we talk everyday! every rec period sometimes we can talk up to an hour if no one is waiting on the phone and then he has to get back in line and call me back in 20 mins! but I love talking to him I think that helps our relationship still being able to hear his voice so often. I can't wait until he comes home! I miss him soo much!!

OMG I feel so spoiled now! When he was in Federal prison we had the 300 minute per month limit. He would call his parents once per month and one of his best friends once every month or two so the rest of the calls went to me...that meant 10 minute calls -- give or take a few minutes -- each day but sometimes we would run out towards the end of the month. Now they he's in immigration detention again there is no limit but it's 10 cents per minute. He calls me anywhere from 2-4 times per day for at least 15 minutes, but usually 30-45 minutes each time. We are burning up the phone money and tonight he teased me because I was at the movies with my son but I told him he could still call at 11pm to say goodnight...well the movie would still be going plus I get to visit him for about 45-60 minutes 5 days per week now so he said I was getting spoiled and "Oh they just made a new rule that I can only call you 300 minutes per month again" hahaha! Silly man! After 16 months of dealing with limited calls and long distance visits it's soooo nice to have more communication with each other and the difference in our attitudes is tremendous!! I haven't seen him smile or laugh this much in a long time! We really do belong together....

My husband calls at least once a day, sometimes twice a day. He is in Federal so we have a 300 minute limit and sometimes towards the end of the month we run out

I hated running out of minutes at the end of the month! One time we had some issues to work out and the place he was at I couldn't visit (since we aren't married) and we had to go 10 days at the end of the month with no calls. Ugh. I feel so spoiled now so I have NO complaints! Well....that's not true...when I leave visit it always seems like an hour is never long enough and I want more of him! Hee hee!

He calls every other day and we talk for 30min. Sometimes we'll talk twice, back to back. Not too much he likes to stay at the budget we set every 2 wks. I'm glad he can control it(I'd probably let things get out of control)cause that way we can keep our calls coming without running out of money

My husband would call me literally several times a day... during the week he would call me on my morning break for 15 min., my lunch break for 30 min, and at 4pm when I get off of work for another 30 min. and then when he would make it out for rec he would call me 2-3 more times to say goodnight. So I would say 5-6 times a day but I miss our Sunday morning phone calls, he'd wake me up and I would lay in the bed looking out the window just imagining him laying right next to me. But now he is in the box and doesn't get out until 1/23/13. So, just counting down the days so we can make it like it was.

I usually get 2 calls a day, but today I got 4. It's really expensive and I don't know how we keep doing it but we do. I don't what I would do if I didn't get to hear his voice every day.

At least twice a day, sometimes more. He can only call 4 times a day and the calls are only 15 min each. I wish they were an hour long like someone else said. Can't wait for him to come home!!!

Mine only calls once a day :-( he use to call more but it got too expensive. It would be awesome if we could just buy them cell phones and talk to them an unlimited amount of time everyday!

We usually talk 3-4 times a day but when he calls, he will usually call back at least 3-4 times each session we talk...so I guess its around 15 phone calls a day. The dorm calls him Verizon. But it's so expensive! So we are trying to slow down a little...it just isn't working. lol

Approx 12-15 calls a day (that's split in between some in the day and night)...we try to cut down on weekdays due to both having to work the next day unless I get him on the phone that night and he says: damn going to bed, I wanna get some extra hours in with my baby tonight, which of course I don't refuse him :P. He talks on the phone the longest of all 85 men in his dorm.
