California State Prison, Solano Additional information:

Telephone Calls
Family and friends (called party) cannot call prisoners; prison
ers must call to speak to
someone outside the prison. The prisoners use designated phone
s that make collect calls to
a land line (residence) or cell phones. The called party is responsible for paying for the calls.
Calling cards cannot be used. International calls can be made if the called party sets up a pre-

paid account with the telephone vendor. Instructions for these types of calls can be found on
the CDCR website at:

The state contracts with one telephone vendor who provides local, long distance, inter-state,

and international telephone services to prisoners. The contract term is usually for several

years and the contract rates are fixed and do not change for the contract term. The current

contract is with Global Tel*link (GTL). GTL issues notices when contract changes occur. The

GTL Notices that include current rates, and current/past notices to inmates, family/friends

can be found on the CDCR website.

The collect call rates are different for local, long distance, interstate, and international calls. If

a called party would like to know their collect call rate, they

would need the prisoner to call

them first so that a completed call or call attempt would be in

the GTL system. Then, the

called party can call GTL at 1-888-415-0377, provide their telephone number, and ask for the

cost of the call. A GTL user guide that includes billing options, refunds, and other information,

Vwill be issued soon. This guide will be shared with the Statewide Inmate Family Council,

local prison family advisory groups, prisoner advisory councils, and will be posted on the

CDCR website.

Prisoners can sign-up to use the designated phones in 15-minute time slots. The number of

calls made by one prisoner can be limited based upon open time slots on the sign-up sheet.

The designated phones’ “on” and “off” times vary at each prison; however, these phones are

turned off during late night and early morning hours. If a prisoner attempts to make a call

when the phones are turned off, the call will not go through.

GTL uses an automated operator system to process the calls. When a prisoner makes a call,

the called party will hear a message stating the call is coming from a state prison and the call

will be monitored and recorded. The called party can listen to the entire message or they can

press the five button on their telephone to accept the charge of the call. During the call, there

will be a message played periodically reminding the called party that the call is from a state

prison. The calls have a 15-minute time limit and the system automatically ends the call at the

end of the 15 minutes. The called party and prisoner will hear a warning message advising

when they have two minutes and one minute left in the call.

All billing and blocking issues should be directed to GTL’s Customer Service number

at 1-888-415-0377.


No time limit unless space availability is limited.

    How do I find out if I am still approved to visit my son.

    Medical quarantines:

    Sometimes part or all of a prison is quarantined to control
    the spread of a contagious disease. When that occurs, visiting is not allowed for any
    prisoners housed in areas under quarantine. The 800 Visitors’ Information number
    (800-374-8474) will advise a visitor whether there is a medical quarantine and which
    parts of the prison are affected

      Hi Paulette,

      The Solano California State Prison should be open on Thanksgiving. However, on holidays, the hours may change. You should call to confirm the schedule before the visit.
