    Once the players are "assigned" by our Inventory Control Department song purchases will be-come available to the inmates.

    1. Can the inmates hear the songs at the kiosk (JPay Terminal) when browsing the music list or is it just a list of music (songs and albums)?
    Yes, inmates will receive a 30 second window to preview songs at the kiosk and we strongly recommend that the inmate previews each song before purchasing the song. Please note that a player must be assigned to the inmate before they can preview music.

    2. Do the music credits remain credits until he gets his JP4 and then they chose the songs at that time to download or if the songs can be purchased before the JP4 gets to them so all they have to do is down load what has already been picked out?
    Once a player has been assigned to the inmate, the inmate will be able to preview/purchase music. The music that the inmate purchase can take 24-48 hours to be available for downloading at the kiosk. The music will remain available to download until the inmate receives his/her player and connects it to the kiosk for downloading.


    3. Can an inmate see if a JP4 has been purchased for them on their side / like in their Media Account?
    Inmates can confirm their purchased at the kiosk by reviewing their transactions. Unfortunately, inmates cannot see if a player was purchased for them by a friend or family member. To obtain confirmation for friends and family purchases, the inmate?s can send a trouble ticket to the Inmate Ticket Team to confirm if a player was ordered for them.

    4. How is the music downloaded Meaning do they pick a song and then some-how it just shows up or do they hook up the JP4's to the terminal then pick songs?
    Once the inmate purchases a song and the song is available for downloading at the kiosk, the inmate will need to connect their player and the system will prompt them to download their available songs.

    5. Do they have to have the JP4 with them at the JPay Terminal to pick out music?
    No, however in order to preview/purchase music the inmate must have a player assigned.

    JPay plans to introduce the JP4, the first mini tablet designed exclusively for prisons. Equipped with a 4.3-inch screen and encased in clear plastic, the device will retail for $50.

    $50 is really good!! I assumed it would be more. So glad ND gets some good stuff. We also got the video messages, which are awesome. We may be behind the times for most things in the real world, but at least the prisons are keeping up!!

    It is a really Great price! lots of technology behind it, it is amazing what all the JP3 Player and JP4 Tablet do!

    I agree some states are so behind and I am glad your state is open to new things for the prison system.

    It would be nice if Texas and the other states signed on board in 2013!

    I am sure there is going to be some talk going on between State DOC's, workers and inmates over The Tablet, it's functions and how it can be used to make life a little easier all the way around in there, for both the inmate and the staff.

    I'm curious and excited to see what kind of educational material they come up with!

    Is this replacing the JP3 Player? When I first heard about the JP4 tablet (November 20th according to my browser history) I checked on the JPay website where they offered the JP3 so I could see how much it was, but it wasn't there and the option to buy the JP3 was gone too. I'm wondering if the JP4 has anything to do with the JP3 disappearing? Also, when will the JP4 be available to purchase in WA?

    When I go to www.jpay.com and click on the link for music it takes me to the page for the JP3 Players.

    From my understanding JPay will be substituting the JP4 Tablet in the upcoming year.

    I agree on getting better items to Texas Inmates. I just emailed the Governor of TX last night about phone call costs.
    Maybe they will get the JP4 or 3.

    Wow that is wonderful. But would be more wonderful if they would get in Indiana. My son would love it. I worry is will lose his mind in there and this would be a big help.

    Big Thanks to TexasDust for all the info provided.

    According to customer support, (800) 574-5729, the JP4 player is "live" at more facilities than Louisiana and Virginia. I called today for my brother in Washington State and was told it was coming soon. However, it was "live" and ready to order at the only 2 woman's facilities in the state since Feb 11th 2013. While this is great news, nowhere is that specific information listed on the website. Your best bet is to call customer support and inquire about your particular prison and try to place the order over the phone, if available. They also told me that once purchased, expect at least 30 days for delivery based on very high demand. Good luck to all, as this tablet should really increase the quality of life for our incarcerated loved ones.

    That is Great it seems to be a nice gizmo to have.

    If the funds for the media player are on his account then either he orders it or it is already ordered for him.

    Texasdust is right.....no media players.....TDC does not even have the JPay kiosks so that our loved ones can reply to the JPay mail. They are behind the times and I doubt TDC will ever allow the media players.
