    Hi Steve – We apologize for the inconvenience. You most likely were trying to send a VideoGram during the highest-volume time. We hope you were able to send one throughout the day! Thanks!

    I feel that it was unfair that every state wasn’t able to take part of the stamp special for the holiday since Thanksgiving is a national holiday. When JPAY have specials going forward it should include everyone. Thanks.

    UPDATE: I went back in the app later and this time would let me make a video. But, it kept saying “the system experienced an error and the file could not be uploaded. Please try again” when trying to send it. I tried over and over again for an hour. I even started over and made a new video. VERY disappointing.

    Been trying to send a video all day and I get error messages that the video wont send. I have tried from my phone and a computer. What good is having a special for one stamp if your system wont send the video through?

    My brother’s video gram did not come through. I was really looking forward to it so that my 95-year old grandmother could see him. She is not able to visit him because he is too far away.

    Hello and Enjoy the Day All!
    I want to say to my loved one that I wish it was so much better. We can endure this with Jehovah’s help. I miss you so much. I love you so much. Just know that Jehovah knows we make mistakes. And when He sees our change that’s all that matters. He put us back together after 35 years. I am not going anywhere. Your help meet has been returned and I am here to help. So fret not. We can endure with His undeserved kindness and our prayers. TYSN our King Jesus Christ. Amen
    I love you BoOg!!!

    Thank you for this new day Father in heaven that none of us has seen before.

    Enjoy the day everyone. Safe journeys.

    To those who are incarcerated…you’re in our hearts…our thoughts, and our prayers. Of we could all for one thing…it’s that you could be home with the loved ones. Your absence is felt daily deeply but surely more on days like these. Peace to you all there….humanity to you all… repentance and forgiveness to you all there. None is righteous…no not one. In your mistakes…grow into your highest self and serve back to mankind the lessons of caged birds.

    When I get on the app to send a VideoGram because of the promotion today, it indicates that VideoGram is not available at his facility. However, when I go on the website and look up the facility, it shows the VideoGram as an available service. Why is that? Is it something that the prison is restricting? I am upset about this.

    Why only those areas and not country wide? It’s 4 stamps a video in Missouri. Shouldn’t all inmates be able to get videos for 1 stamp

  44. Irene

    November 22, 2018 - 9:08 am

    I just did a video gram and it still took out 4 stamps instead of 1 which is being advertised.
