This tablet is a month-to-month paid service that comes standard with a wireless outbound phone system, as well as services that can help a person overcome challenges, cope with incarceration in a healthy way, and get a start building a productive life on the outside.
Outbound Phone System: enables inmates to place calls to anyone, anytime, in relative privacy and safety. Helps avoid confrontations in common areas. Standard in-facility rates apply.

Music: Provides categorical music to inmates which, depending on facility approval, may be streamed and stored on the tablet device.
