Saw this and thought it was of interest to the group.  I have kept as much for my sons as i could to help them get IDs or driver's licenses again once they leave prison, but not everyone has that support system.

I'm sorry and I hope it all works out for him and you, at least if he stays in to do his parole time, once he's out, he is free and clear of IDOC and you can go on with your lives.

Same thing happened to me and my LO on Tuesday night.  It was a man's voice and a longer message than just the lady saying no third party calls allowed.  We both freaked for a second and moved on with our conversation however it was annoying!  It happened 3 times within the first 8 minutes of the call and then never happened again.  I hope this is not a long term thing but if it is, like many other things, it's just another thing to get used to and accept.

You can call the facility and ask if he is in seg, you can also check your securus account to see when the last attempted call was made. Try to stay calm, there are always many reasons for why they might not have called. I learned early on that I was going to have a stroke if I worried about all of these things that were out of my control.  If it's a new house, it could be that he is having a really hard time getting to the phones. My hubby was once placed in a house, in a cell, furthest from the phones. It was nearly impossible for us to get calls until he became a porter and was out of his cell working and could make calls then.  Hang in there!

Thank you. It looks like that's what is going to happen. It's so upsetting. I thought my daughter would finally have her dad but since they said no it can't happen for another nine months. She'll be two. Ugh.

Just remember, while I know all of you follow the rules, there are MANY that do try to do 3 way calls and maybe they are having to do the warnings, more than one time, because there has been an uptick in these type of calls.  It's could be a software glitch too, hope it calms down.

It only takes a few to break the rules, as always, to ruin it for everyone.

Great point Forevermah, I do recall a recent visit where there was a repairman for the phone who was telling the Sgt that he was delayed in the work he needed to do to the phone, and he kept saying that there were several voices on the phone. The Sgt took notes on it and stated the same person does it all the time. I'm not saying that this one person was the cause of the added enforcement, but I can imagine how many ppl are taking advantage...at all facilities. It just sucks that a few bad apples are gona cause added grief for the rest of us!!!! I will truly be glad when My Love's release date comes, I am so beyond done with the IDOC saga!

This also happened to our phone call. My Husband said the only third party on the line was the recording!!!! Sounds like there were just some technical difficulties. I hope they fix that cause we don't pay all this money to hear this guy talking!!!!
