It’s okay

It’s pretty great except the fact any messages he sends me today through the jail, I won’t be able to receive until midnight tonight. N it’s like that everyday. I can see he sent messages just refuse to show me until midnight. That kinda hurts to be honest.

This app is great! Super convenient and easy to use and every time I've had a question or concern, their customer service has been super helpful. They even called ME back when our call was disconnected. They respond with answers to my questions within a couple hours when I've emailed them and within a few minutes when I've called. Great job TextBehind, keep up the good work!

It’s a really nice app. Sending messages, photos and Text cards is very cheap! They get to the inmate in a day or like today four hours (as long as it’s a weekday because they don’t deliver my messages on weekends) the inmates receive the images and they look so good. Very very impressed! I’m ganna have to give it a 5 star Rate. Thank you for giving us a app to be able to contact inmates as fast as I do. Thank you, again!
