Does the phone have Internet access?
Does the phone have a web browser? Instant messaging (e.g. Windows Messenger, AIM)? If so, can they be disabled or limited?
- While mobile access to the Internet is extremely handy, it also presents many of the same risks as home computers connected to the Internet. Many of the same online features are available on mobile phones that are on personal computers. Parents should ask service providers whether such functions can be disabled or password-protected.
