I’m trying to register my phone number so that I can receive phone calls from a Texas inmate. (I live in Texas, too.) I submitted the requisite documentation, which includes a copy of my recent phone bill, and they told me that TDCJ would not accept it because Republic Wireless is a pre-paid service and only phones on post-paid plans are allowed.
Is this a technicality, or are they wrong? If this is not accurate, can Republic Wireless forward me to any documentation that proves this?
