Is it a landline or a cell phone? This happens to me on occasion. Mine is a landline. When it happens to me on my home phone I need to reset my modem. After resetting the modem everything goes fine. If it's a landline and your home phone is connected to your internet try resetting the modem and that should help.

Today was the first time my fiancé could call and I checked securus to see if he called because his mom missed a call from him. Sure enough it said a call was a attempted but my cell never rang. Everything is active and I have $25 on my account. What else should I do? I'm so upset I didn't get the call he's been in since 2/6/17 and was just transferred yesterday to Shawnee....5 hours away from me :(


         This happened to me once. It ended up being from his end. He didn't have the correct PIN number issued. Write him a letter and let him know to double check things on his end.

Pinckneyville is on FULL LOCKDOWN - NO VISITS ALLOWED.

This topic is for updates only.

Anyone know what's going on at Menard. I read they are on lockdown due to 150 men not wanting to go in from yard? Sounded like a protest to me. I haven't heard from my husband so I'm curious if anyone had any info to share.
Thanks

Hi sorry for the late reply... I'm not 100% but I think yard is 3 times a week and gym once or twice a week.
Typewriters are on the commissary list - so I guess so
I've never heard him mention AMC (I'll ask when they get off LD)
No email/video visits yet..he had been told June sometime
Same again for mp3 players I believe..

😀

Hi:
Yes they have email/mp3, soon to have video visits. $75 for mp3, $1.30 or $1.60 per song and 30cents per email message. Visits are 4 hours long, contact. You need to have a $5 bill to purchase the vending machine card, then up to $50 on card. Only 3 person per visit, the children, unless infant, are considered a person. I was there recently and saw family of 6 with 3 children in the group the CO would only let 3 person in the visit.
Also, the West House causes a lot of lockdowns, so prepare for no visit lockdown.
There is a nice hospitality house for $20 a night, important to call at least 3-4 weeks in advance.

CO are nice and easy. Visiting room small, so can get crowded and you have to wait for space, otherwise, simple and easy.

My LO told me that the equipment for email was installed yesterday.
