    Hi, I’m trying to access my email, which I had stamps previously and now I can’t. The email logo isn’t at the top with the rest of the logos (send money, video visitation, etc.). Have you taken the email logos away or is there a way I can start back emailing my loved one.

    Is the tablet available in the prisons in Indiana? Why am I able to send my fiance money but they refused my visitation privileges? Also, I sent 3 videograms all with lrepaid replies on July 7, and not one of the 3 inmates I write received them.

    Hi Scott – It only takes one stamp to send an email and then another stamp to attach a photo. VideoGram is only available through the JPay mobile app on cell phones. You’ll be able to see if VideoGram is available to your loved one through the app. Thanks!

  34. Scott

    July 31, 2018 - 9:48 pm

    How many stamps does it take for an inmate to send a picture or an email? And can they send a video gram to me? If so how many stamps for that?

  35. Kristen

    July 29, 2018 - 10:56 pm

    Why isn’t email or stamp transfer working in the jpay app? It won’t let me select a contact and if I add one it says contact already exists. This has been going on for several days now. Please help!

  36. Laurie

    Is JPay increasing their security protocols and encryption in light of the Idaho hacking? Are our payments and cards stored in our profiles / payment methods secure?

    Why was my visitation app denied due to lack of information. I filled out everything on application and i have a clean background. Now I have to send a copy of my licence and social security number by mail. Confused.

    The jpay app isn’t working yet. I put in my login information, I select the state he’s in, put in his doc number, hit continue, “inmate already exists” is the message I get. Why is that so and when will that be resolved?

    Is video visitation compatible with Safari on an Apple/Mac computer ? I haven’t received an answer on this. Need help before I schedule another failed video visit

    Hi. When will Louisiana State Prison going to get video calls (i.e. face time from their tablet) and able to email pictures & videos? Thank you.

  47. Laurie

    Also, is there any way the inmates with tablets can be provided with better microphones on their headset? The mic picks up EVERYTHING, and you can hear the background noise more loudly than the person talking.

    Also, there is a lot of reverberation in that when I say something, a couple of seconds later I hear myself say it to him. In other words, there’s a time delay and then I hear myself loud and clear.

  48. Laurie

    July 23, 2018 - 12:29 pm

    I’m just trying to get a time frame for those services. Will they be active in 2018 at least?
