I always do the Advance where you prepay/deposit so much money (I do $$ per week).  My son has mentioned that he knows of people who have a Securus account where you pay $100/month with unlimited calls.   Does anyone know about this program and what it may be called?   I've budgeted that much a month anyway so it would be helpful to have unlimited calls too.   If anyone knows about this, please let us know.   Thanks!

was curious if anyone has done the direct bill for securus vs the advanced connect are the prices for calls the same or is it cheaper to do direct?

At least for me when Vinelink updated their ios app, I had to re-register to be notified of changes in my son's status.

Thought I would post this so others would know this also....

Sometimes the phones in the facilities mess up. There have been several times this has happened and we've had to just hang up.

You're correct.  We were just hoping for a less harsh environment since he is a first offender but you're probably right.

If I remember your story you LO only has a year to serve?    If that is so, then would doubt he would be moved because he has such a short time.  If I'm mistaken, I apologize

SETTING UP ILLINOIS PRISON PHONE SERVICE - FAQ's / Weird phone connection

LO called tonight and connection was really choppy and seemed like it was delayed.  Why would that be?

I know!  I am.  I guess what I was asking is if there's any way or chance he will be moved to Taylorville before six months since he was accepted and if there is anything we can do to help that along.

Unfortunately IDOC is overcrowded and people go where IDOC has a bed.  Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason (at least one I haven't figured out yet) lol.

Please don't worry - write, visit if you can, take care of yourself.
