I keep getting calls from a Pay Phone with a recording that an inmate is placing a call to my number. I have been hanging up but should I listen to a full message and see if a 2 cooler, perhaps J or Gary, needs help?
big pun is correct those guys have figured a way to enter a certain code to hold the line open and when you hang up it will hold the line and give them a dial tone to dial local or longdistance from the phones in the tank. When I worked in the jail I always saw the phone off the hook in the dayroom of the tank and never thought much about it until one of the other officers told me what was happening. After that I would hang all the phones up and it would hack those guys off. I always thought it funny to hang them up because it might be days before they could get another open line.
