From texts to s to social media apps, constant communication via our phones, computers, and tablets is how many of us live our lives these days. But, when you are in prison, you have no internet access, and until recently, electronic devices were also prohibited more on that in a minute. If you get caught with a cell phone, you will get into a lot of trouble. Usually, it means you will go to the hole, which is prison slang for solitary confinement or administrative segregation.
However, when you are a prison inmate you can still get s, but there is a process to it. Until recently, the only way an inmate could get s was at mail call. Friends and family use a service like JPay or Access Corrections to write an to their incarcerated loved one. Then, the s are sent to the prison and the mail staff prints the s out. The inmate receives the print out at mail call. You have to know the facility your inmate is housed in, as well as their inmate ID. You will also need a debit or credit card. Now, many prisons are giving their inmates or their family and friends the option of buying a tablet.
Depending on the facility, you either send the inmate money to buy the tablet or you buy the tablet through JPay, and it will be sent to the inmate. The tablets also have other features like downloading musicgames, and ebooks and renting movies. Of course, all of these features come with a price and the fees do vary based on the company, the service, and the facility. When it comes to prison, nothing is free. Any product or service is going to cost you, and there is usually an insane markup on the price.
s are actually one of the most affordable things you can buy in prison. The price to send one is usually less than the cost of a stamp, somewhere between 25 and 50 cents. Most of the time, they allow you to attach a picture to the if you would like to use that option. Inmates get s from JPay at mail call, and the times vary based on the facility, security level, and housing unit. Some prisons hand out s daily, while others might do it week twice a week or weekly.
It really just depends. For inmates who have tablets, they will have the opportunity to download s, music, games, books, movies, etc…usually once a week. But again, this varies based on the prison. JPay, a Florida-based company is really taking over the prison industry when it comes to communication between prisoners and their loved ones.
Some prisons only offer JPay as an option to send money, write anhave a video visit, make phone calls, or buy a tablet. The fees associated with these services are extremely high. Do you think companies like JPay are taking advantage I am an inmate who wants a penmate prisoners and their families?

Inshe was sentenced to 30 years in prison for the possession and production of marijuana. She was released in We've kept her last name off of our website so that she does not experience any professional hardship for her contributions. I think JPay is too costly for inmates and their loved ones.
They take advantage of the difficult and deprived situation. I think it should be regulated like the other communication providers. I think we should be able to talk to our friends and family that are behind the bars. Wisconsin needs to do better. Need to list the freaking fees that come with putting money on their books.
