INTERNET PORN

i know AT&T is very well aware that there are many young kids with cell phones these days and many of them have access to the internet. This means they can access porn sites and there is no way for a parent to always monitor this and worse yet no way to control it. Pornography is an industry and media that horribly affects the minds and lives of many people as well as under age children and families as well. I encourage you, no, i plead with you that you will put the filters in place or give parents the options and means to 100% block this trash from their children at least as long as they are young enough to be under their authority. I hope you have some regard for the morality of our world and this generation of kids who will be our next world leaders and are not 100% bent on making every dime you can at the expense of young minds. I would not think of suggesting that every line or phone was blocked from pornography but please, at least give people the option and means to control it if they desire. Thank you, Concerned Citizen

Break the phone in a million pieces.  Problem solved.  We already have enough of a nanny state in this country.

Put a data block on your kids phone.  I will take care of parenting my kids and teaching them right from wrong. I DO NOT want someone telling what to do and how to raise my kids.  There is enough of that already.  Besides most schools curriculum is explicit enough!

 

Thanks for posting!

That is a major problem buying kids smartphones. You are required a data plan and you don't want to give the kids unrestricted internet. Maybe we will get some software for blocking porn for the phone like you can get for PCs, like Net Nanny.
