When can I expect a call from my husband?
« on: December 17, 2017, 07:08:13 PM »
 My husband was taken into custody at the county jail on 11/29. On 11/30 he was moved to stateville northern reception.  On 12/15 they moved him to vandalia correctional center.  I still haven't recieved a call from him.  Do you know now that's he's at his permanent location when i can expect a call?

He will have to add you to his approved call list and this takes a little while to get approved.

Have you set up a securus account so he can contact you?

My husband has been at Statesville since 11/15/17 and still hasn't gotten his list of a whole whopping 1 phone number approved. Initially I was told 2 weeks now they said 4 weeks. Four weeks was yesterday and nothing! Supposedly they are behind in getting the numbers approved. I will tell you if you haven't already contact Vandalia and verify if his visiting list has been approved. Apparently they move much faster with the visiting list.
Good luck!

My L/O just had a new phone list put in and it took over a month to get it back.  Things are slow all over.  Securus makes a fortune on us so you would think they would be a bit faster.
