Smart limits will cost ya 5 bucks per month but you can limit data usage or turn it off all together, you can also block purchases and i beleive if memory serves me correct you can limit different options by time of day.

Smart Limits Terms shows "do(es) not enable or prevent the use of instant messaging sent/received using Over the Top (OTT) applications (e.g., iMessages, WhatsApp, etc), MMS messaging or Video Share."

 

It'll help with texting, but it won't with other services.


Many phones have parental control apps you can download to limit apps like AIM.
