Menard Tablets
« on: November 22, 2017, 03:39:19 PM »
Hey y'all trying to get some resolution to the rumor mill.  Can anyone confirm if Menard is supposed to go wireless next year? Meaning phone calls and messages will be available on the tablets along with email, music and games in 2018. I'm saying no but you know how the rumors fly. And any chance tablets will be available at Stateville and Pontiac?

My husband just asked about this. He's in Pontiac medium unit.  Will they be able to make calls from the tablets? He said they are using one phone spaces in the dayroom for the video visit kiosk leaving only one phone. He's wondering how that s going to impact everyone

There are so many rumors adn of course no one from IDOC will ever give anyone a real answer. Just like visiting room pics. Stateville has them now, so when will menard and Pontiac?? No one knows. Its a big damn secret. lol

I HEARD that they are only for music.  I would doubt IDOC would allow phone conversations or un monitored emails or any communications directly to the offenders.

I would NEVER expect anything in DOC to be unmonitored. Just checking rumor mills
