I don't understand why I have to put my address on the profile of my son. Can I put on his profile the connect network so he can receive e-mails?

@Pinkhenny: It can take up to 5 workdays 8at least it did pre-Covid) til a profile is uploaded, so it should be done by now.

@Bud657: Sorry, I don't get what you mean. I don't know the site you mentioned, nor where, what or whom you paid. This site on here is writeaprisoner and if you want to have an ad posted on here, this is the right lin for you: https://writeaprisoner.com/inmate-new-listing

Please get back to me.  I really need help.  I feel like I'm so close to being done.  Right now I'm the only one getting pictures of the matches.  My inmate is Cody Callahan. # 301646,  I've done the profile the picture.  Please get back to me.  I'm very frustrated!

To everyone who's been struggling with this:

I know it can be frustrating and confusing. We here are merely registered forum members, mostly writing to one or several incarcerated ppl as penpals.

If you have questions about a specific profile, we can't help you. You've got to email write a prisonevr directly. The addy is . g e n e r a l - i n f o r m a t i o n @ w r i t e a p r i s o n e r. c om (minus the spaces, of course).

Tip. use the inmate's name and # in the subject line of your email, thereby it'll be easier to handle your request.

Hope this helps! (and sorry, but we really aren't the ones who might change this for the better, we're just penpals trying to help).

I paid $65 for an inmates profile(Brandon Nichols #343702) before I actually filled out and submitted the profile info. After I completed the profile info, it's now asking me to pay again. Can you make sure the payment I made is applied toward his profile and post it. Also, let me know if in fact the profile info was saved. Thank you

Hey I'm trying to set up my brothers account but I'm having such a hard time I am usually fine with understanding this online stuff but I don't understand why this is so complicated. Now I'm thinking I set up an account for myself when that's not what I was trying to do. Maybe there's customer service that ca. help but dealing with anything prison wise whether it's commissary, adding minutes to phone the people are just so rude and act like they're so much more entitled than us family members and it pisses me off. I don't know if you've ever had to deal with GTL or Telmate but they can be some cruel people. I'm gonna look for a customer see I've number if I don't hear any hopeful information from you. I must have done something wrong

Sarah, what email address are you talking about? That's unclear for me. Since you posted on one of The Germans here threads as well, you might get back at me there and rephrase it in German. Maybe I'll know what you mean then...

Shaddy: If you can still see that profile, then there's a link "Renew profile for x (name of the inmate) ". Use that one and follow what it says.

If you can't see the profile, please email WAP and use "Update/Renewal of an inmate's profile" in your email's subject line: general - information [at] writeaprisoner [dot] com

They'll get back to you.

Kirsten

Hello everyone,
I'm new here and I was wondering what the email address means that is shown once an inmate is on your list. Then you can see more info and then there's an email address and I wrote an email to this address and I don't know what to expect now.
Thx for the help in advance.
Sarah

@Dawn - no, you're not alone. A lot of people find this site and the processes confusing. 
 

@Dollbeauty - no, inmates cannot see your address. As inmates don't have (legal) access to internet they cannot look at Write a Prisoner. Your address is only used if you use the WAP email feature, and it will be used as the return address. No one here on the forum or any inmates can see your address.

When did you do that? In pre- Covid times it could take up to 5 workdays to have a profile up & running. I'm not sure if it might take a little longer now, due to shortage( Illness/quarantine?) of staff?
