I work in a state prison that has this system.  I works fine and the men seem to appreciate it. Here they must buy the tablets and the tablets are special order feature delete, so no wi-fi. They can download music and send emails.  The transmission is through a secure kiosk.  No games so far.  Other inmates can use the kiosk to check their institutional account balances and do emails.  The woman talking to her family is on another system.

On the whole, this idea is as bad as Trump being president.

Those tablets contain WiFi modules so the trick will be hacking the firewall. Or hacking the O/S shell to permit change in WiFi settings for picking up of a directional antenna.

Failing that, you could go old school and use code phrases but you can already do that over a phone.

Draculya What it looks like to me, and I could be wrong, to make connections to the outside, the tablets have to be docked in that station. There may be no WiFi module at all.

If that's the case, surely the stations in which the outside connections are made are guarded fairly heavily, ie no tampering with the station itself.

Well on the surface it seams all happy and sunshine but like several others have mentioned there is a hole new area of abuse now available to the inmates, I have a reasonable believe that there are several people in those jails for computer crimes and such, and some of them probably can hot wire these things, do the doors open from a computer system, obviously they( the inmate computers) are tied in to some kind of system. And would this have seamed like such a good Idea if they used some child raping killer as a subject.  And her rehabilitation is working so well the checks I cashed were a victimless crime that's not true her children are victims she said well she made them victims. Is it possible she was writing checks for non existent products? No remorse.

Colorado has proven itself ahead of the curve in the weed area, who knows, maybe this will lead to ACTUAL rehabilitation and get recidivism rates down?

now, how will this be misused, prisoners are quite resourceful when it comes to getting around the rules
or how will prisons abuse this, I can see them stop paying prisoners to instead give them things like "1 email a day" or something

I don't see the problem with this. However, GTL (the company providing the tablets, and the connection) are a bunch of stand-up philosophers.
