  • Cell Phone Registration For TDCJ Calls !

    Hello my Texas Ladies I just wanted to share this info with all of you and also let yall know that the phone rate will NOT change from .26 a minute. So if you are in Texas and your LO calls your cell or landline you will still pay the same rate .26 (bummer). I was thinking I could change my cellphone number to his units area code but it won't make a difference lol. Anyway here is some good info for all of you

    The decision to accept cell phones has been approved by TDCJ. At this time we do not have a date to begin processing registrations. Computer systems are being updated to allow for the change and updates will be posted to this site. Please check back periodically. http://www.texasprisonphone.com/

    What can I expect once cell phones are allowed?
    Only cell phones with ?post-paid? billing arrangements will be allowed. Pre-paid phones will not be approved.
    ?Pre-paid cell phones (aka pay-as-you-go) are phones for which credit is purchased in advance. Example providers include TracFone, Boost Mobile, Verizon Prepaid, and T-Mobile Prepaid.
    Post-paid cell phones are phones where the user chooses a calling plan and enters into regular billing arrangement with the provider. Examples include AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile.
    Pre-paid phones are not allowed due to TDCJ security policies.

    All cell phone registrations must be processed by calling the Enrollment Center at 866 806 7804, option 1, 2, and 7 (Understand that when you hit the 7 key you are agreeing to the terms so listen carefully). The representative will call your cell phone provider with you on the line to verify ownership of the account and confirm that the cellphone is not pre-paid. .

    You cannot port your landline phone to a cell phone without calling the Enrollment Center to register the number as a cell phone. All numbers ported from a landline to a cell phone will be blocked until you call to re-register it as a cell phone.
    You may keep your landline phone registered AND register your cell phone.

        TDCJ moving on up now I see you lol
        The Bible...read it to be wise, believe it to be saved and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you. Chist is its grand subject. Our good is its design.The glory of God is its end. Read it slowly. Read it often. Read it prayerfully.
        Praise the Lord it's another day with out him but a day closer for him to be home

                            well Texas is talking about catching up with the times. I am sure set backs delays and kinks will keep this from starting for quite some time!

                              Change is hard for everyone in whatever situation you may be, even at work (I'm sure many can relate) so imagine the work they have to do to set all units to the exact same thing....... We have to be patient but it will come .
