      Hi Laura,

      Prison process can be very frustrating. Prison administrations can move very slowly. I would recommend contacting the administration about the status of the jpay.

    I would like to know if the Bradshaw Unit has access to e-comm for inmate commissary?!
    I would also like to know if there is a waiting period for new inmates before they can have visitors?
    Did I understand correctly that if you send white envelopes to an inmate that I would need to put his name, Tdc# & return address on ea envelope that I send?
    Do inmates have access to phones and can they receive mail by e – mail?
    Thank you for your help with my many questions in advance.
