Hi, my fiancée just got transferred from Montgomery County to Gist. How do I write him, also, how do I accept /receive his calls, and do commissary? And how do you guys do visitation? How do I put money on my postpaid cell phone and home phone? Are inmates allowed to receive books or anything?

On the whole, Texas prisons are not the best prisons in the United States. Of course, any prison is not good. For specific details about Gist, click the web site link posted on the top of this prison page.
