AT&T Adds More Parental Control Services to Wireless Phones
      #40572 - 05/03/11 11:19 AM

ATT added two new enhancements to ATT Smart Limits for Wireless, bringing an increased level of parental control to two of the service's most popular features. Compatible with ATT's quick messaging and feature phones such as the HTC Freestyle and LG Neon II, devices that popular among teens, the enhancements provide adults with even more control over their child's mobile phone experience through ATT Smart Controls.

New updates include:

* Increase in Blocked Numbers: Block more numbers than ever before. Parents can now block up to 30 numbers, twice the previous number, to prevent unwanted or harassing calls and text messages on their child?s phone. The feature extends to both incoming and outgoing calls and text messages and can be modified at any time.

* Additional Cost Controls: Add 411 calls to a restricted list of numbers. To help parents better manage call and download activity, AT&T Smart Limits for Wireless provides cost control tools to limit or restrict download purchases and calls ? now including calls made to 411.

In addition service features include:

* 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.
* Determine the amount of Web browsing usage allowed per billing cycle.
* 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 consumers who subscribe to a postpaid wireless rate plan.
