Mini-tablet for Prisons Now Available in Louisiana and Virginia!
Posted by: Editor on Feb 4, 2013 | 14 Comments
First the big game in the Big Easy, now the big player for the big house!
JPay's revolutionary mini-tablet, the JP4, is now available for purchase in all Louisiana state correctional facilities. You can also buy the JP4 player for a Louisiana inmate online at JPay.com. Additionally, all Louisiana facilities now allow inmates to browse and buy digital music on the JPay kiosks installed in the living units.
Six prisons in Virginia have also begun offering the JP4 for sale. Just like in Louisiana, inmates can purchase the players directly from the kiosk using their commissary funds, or their friends and family members can purchase one on their behalf from JPay.com.
The JP4 device is a mini tablet computer designed and built for the correctional environment. It features a responsive touch screen, a built-in music player, an FM tuner, a calendar, and comes pre-loaded with several games and other applications. At the low price of just $49.99, the JP4 is simultaneously one of the most affordable and most powerful personal media devices available to inmates today.
How to buy a JP4 for an inmate
If you have a loved one in Virginia or Louisiana and you'd like to buy them a JP4, first
- Log into your JPay account (new users can create a free account here)
- Click on the Music section
- Use your debit or credit card to complete the purchase.
The JP4 will be delivered directly to the inmate.
How to fund an inmate's media account
If you would like to add funds to your loved one's media account so they can purchase a JP4 or music tracks to play on it, first:
- Log into your JPay account
- Click into the Music section
- Click 'Send JPay Credits'
- Follow the directions to send credits
JPay Credits deposited into the media account are not subject to restitution or other deductions (like funds sent to commissary or spendable accounts), though the money can only be used for the purchase of media.
