Thanks for sharing. This process seems to be going really slow. My l/o said they were suppose to be getting the mp3 players in Feb/Mar of this year but they haven't. I don't know if they'll be able to do video visitations on the players whenever they get them or not or if they'll have a kiosk setup for video visits
