    Hello I am trying to figure out whats going on with my sons 2nd tablet. He had charged it at the charging station after charging he went to turn it on and it no longer works Im not understanding why it has not been replaced also his first tablet was issued in Jackson last year when he got to his current facility he never received the tablet him and I both have inquired about this! I understate they only come with a certain warranty but if this happened at the charging station why does it matter if its under warranty when the charging station is responsible? I have spent $200 on just tablet since February of 2017 no telling how much I have spent on stamps alone and still have 7 yrs to go! is there someone that can actually help I am on disability and can not continue to afford this! I was told by a representative that JPay runs promotion for 50% off so if I have to purchase another tablet how can I get this Promotion? I am located in the State of Georgia. Thank you in advanced for your assistance.

    Hi there. My loved one and several others at his facility (AHCC) have been having issues with their tablets – their inboxes are no longer available. They submitted trouble tickets and were told fixes were on the way, but they never arrived, who can I contact to help get this resolved? Thanks

    Hi Shaton – Your loved ones own the tablets so they can use them throughout the day and night, unless otherwise specified by the facility. Video Visitation sessions can be scheduled through your JPay account. Thanks!

    I’m excited about the tablets being distributed to the inmates, it helps with communication instead of waiting for mail. It’s easy and simple to use. Are they able to communicate throughout the night even when lights are out? When doing video chat will I be able to see my love one?

    I just want to say how excited my fiance and I are with his JPAY Tablet. We are able to keep in contact with each other through emails everyday.

    Recently my loved one was in one of the facilities that was directly hit by Hurricane Michael. He was moved to another facility due to all the damage. He was made to leave his belongings & his tablet behind. When he got his tablet back the screen was cracked by mishandling when their belongings were sent to them at the new place. I purchased this tablet for him. How can it be fixed without me having to purchase another tablet? This was not his doing or mishandling. Thank you for your help!

    I love that we can connect with our loved one through this amazing email app.. it’s wonderful. Thank You Jpay. However, the last month or so, since the latest update, some emails, to and from my loved one wont go through on the weekends. Sometimes it’s Friday thru Sunday, I won’t get any emails until Monday. They have the date and time on them when I finally do get them on Monday. Can you tell me why this is happening? I’ve read where others are going through the same thing. Thank you.

  40. JPayJT

    October 23, 2018 - 3:19 pm

    Hi Trygva – JPay does not sell those services or products. You can send money to your loved one and they can use that money to purchase goods through commissary. Thanks!

  41. JPayJT

    October 23, 2018 - 3:19 pm

    Hi Betty – You can see all the rates for JPay services on and then click on “prison search” at the top. Thanks!

    Can I just say how AWESOME it is for the inmates to be able to correspond quicker with a JPAY tablet? My husband has one and we are emailing everyday. Way to go!!


    October 23, 2018 - 2:42 pm

    What is the amount charged to send money to an inmate.?

  45. Trygva Belle

    October 23, 2018 - 2:22 pm

    Is it possible to make purchases through JPay for my love ones TV, MP3, clothing, etc……. or does the inmate themselves have to make those purchases?

    Hello – Can you please clarify your question? You can send emails and buy stamps through a JPay account if available at your loved one’s facility.

  48. Nursey

    October 23, 2018 - 1:32 pm

    Have you guys considered a Jpay cell phone? I’m sure there are a ton of issues doing it, but I think you’d make bank if you used a wifi-call based system for the prisoners to us (making digital recording snap I might add) and if it were affordable many people would pay for it. I know I’m down for $20 a month.

    This would be my first time using JPay and I’m excited about it because it helps you connect with your loved one
