Parents Can Set Mobile Web Usage Limits for Their Children on AT&T

ATT has added a new browsing limits feature to ATT Smart Limits for Wireless that lets parents set additional parameters around their children's access to the mobile Internet by assigning a monetary or a megabyte or gigabyte usage limit. Here is more info:

AT&T Smart Limits for Wireless is a Web-based suite of tools that gives subscribers flexibility in managing their children's mobile phone experience. AT&T is the first major carrier to offer usage ceilings for mobile Web browsing as part of its parental controls lineup. In addition to surfing the Internet, popular tasks such as updating a social networking profile and downloading a game require a connection to the mobile Web.

Limits can be adjusted at any time. For example, parents can allocate a certain number of megabytes for mobile Web use but offer to increase it for a child who completes household chores on time or improves his or her grades.

AT&T Smart Limits for Wireless also gives parents the ability to:

* Establish times of day the phone can be used for mobile Web browsing, messaging and outbound calls.
* Filter access to Internet content that is inappropriate for children.
* Define the number of text and instant messages allowed.
* Block or allow calls or texts to or from certain numbers (incoming and outgoing).
* Limit downloadable purchases such as ringtones, games, graphics and other content to a certain dollar amount.

AT&T Smart Limits for Wireless is available for $4.99 a month per line to AT&T wireless customers who subscribe to a postpaid rate plan. To learn more about AT&T Smart Limits for Wireless, visit For the full suite of AT&T parental controls, go to
