Once an inmate is assigned to a unit he will have to follow the standard rules. Phone calls are 15 minutes long. When the time is up the phone will automatically disconnect. There is no limit on the number of phone calls an inmate can make. There used to be phone lists so the officers would know whose turn was next but more phones were added by the jail so inmates rarely have to wait to make a call.
Phone calls can be made by the inmate during normal day room hours which are usually from 8:00 am – 9:00 pm. No phone calls are allowed to be made during meal time, commissary deliver and laundry exchange. Inmates can only make collect calls. They cannot receive calls into the Bexar County Jail.
