Smart Limits Internet

Is there no way to cut my daughters internet (from her phone) off at night??  I have set smart limits for calls, but she is on Facebook at 1245am on a school night.  Basically, I want to turn her PHONE OFF after 11:30pm school nights.

 

thank you,

Lisa

Hi Lisa, Smart Limits restricts data usage and internet access with time of day restrictions as well, but only on Basic and Messaging phones, not currently on Smartphones. Some families have recommended that kids charge phones in the parents’ bedroom each night so kids can’t access them in the evening. Have you considered this?

Yes. All outbound calls, text and internet are cut off at the time you set. Of course, 9-1-1 calls outbound are still active. All inbound voice calls are still active. These cannot be stopped unless the numbers are part of your banned number list. In other words, if her friend calls her you still have the same issue.

Ok... I solved this problem by setting the MB usage allowed to zero. Now if my son tries to sowload something or surf the net, he has no MB allotment to do so.  

 

Hope this helped
