While liberty and phone use during MCT is the decision of command, do keep your phone close just in case and answer any unknown number. Do send text messages to your Marine's phone so when they do get their phones back they will read all of your messages once phones are returned. :)
Sometimes phones are given back as a reward but possbly look for a call on Liberty Sunday, the Sunday before gradation.

The first couple weeks will be busy training in the field. Read this 'unofficial training schedule' for an idea of what your Marines are doing.

My best wishes to your Marines!

For families with new Marines reporting to SOI/MCT soon, a list of supplies they need. They will usually have most of what is on this list and may only need to purchase a few items from the MCX on base. This is just gives you an idea of what all they have to pack.

For when your Marines are packing to return, some packing tips from one who knows (thank you WD)! :)
http://marinefamilynetwork.com/profiles/blogs/mct-itb-coming-hints

Check out the 'unofficial training schedule' listed above to see just what your Marines are doing.
http://marinefamilynetwork.com/profiles/blogs/unofficial-training-s...

Upon arrival to MCT, if your Marine is picking up to begin training on the day of reporting, they do usually get a few moments of phone use before the phones are collected. Checking in and being assigned gear takes up a lot of time the first few days so if you don't hear from your Marine right away, this could be the reason.

When the phone calls stop or you no longer have communication with your Marine, it would be a good indication they have picked up to begin training. If you are still in communication, then they may be held over to do other needs of the Corps duties (like guard duty) and to pick up with the next class.

Best wishes and prayers for your Marines as they continue through their Marine training.
