So I have heard that the recruits can get there phone back on week 5 of boot camp. is this true? if so it would be really nice to talk to my boyfriend.

They will get a phone call week 5, but not their phone.
Saturday of week 6 and 7 recruits are (hopefully) granted liberty for a few hours. They will have their cell phones to talk freely during liberty, then the phones are locked away while training resumes.

The week 5 phone call is from a landline phone in their hall, that phone call is for calling their family to let them know where they are being stationed. It is a 5 minute phone call simply for passing information. Cell phones are given back for a short period during on base liberty and off base liberty in weeks 6 and 7. They are locked up at all other times.

Unless it is during liberty time and he has already called you, DO NOT CALL HIS PHONE. First of all, he won't have it. But if he should have it and it rings, he will be in a world of hurt. Also, if he has turned it in and forgot to turn it off, you don't want that phone ringing. He will call you and let you know when it is ok to call him.
