Ask The Right Questions

What sort of adult controls are built into the mobile phone?

Is it possible for the carrier/service provider to set up your child/adolescent's mobile phone to block any potentially questionable content (adult websites/images/language, sexually explicit content, etc.)?

Do you want a monthly plan (with the ability to monitor usage via monthly bills) or a prepaid arrangement (so as to cap the available amount of usage) for your child/adolescent's phone?

  • The plan you choose will determine in part how closely you can monitor your child/adolescent's mobile phone use. Consider what may be more appropriate for your child/adolescent based on his/her age or developmental level.
