AT&T Smart Limits for Wireless is a service that allows a parent to set usage limits on a child’s talk time, text messages, instant messages and downloads. Parents manage how and when a child can communicate, restrict access to mobile Web sites and provide minutes among users of a shared plan.
"AT&T Smart Limits for Wireless enables parents to provide their children with the safety and convenience of wireless service while setting sensible boundaries for its use," said David Christopher, chief marketing officer for AT&T’s wireless unit.
"AT&T Smart Limits for Wireless gives parents peace of mind in knowing they will be able to keep in touch with their children but will avoid unexpected overage charges on their bill."
Smart Limits for Wireless also lets parent’s block numbers they think may be inappropriate and control the time of the day and days of the week that the phone can be used. Parents can go online and change the limits at any time.
"AT&T Smart Limits for Wireless is another way AT&T is integrating services and features to help customers manage content delivery across any of their devices and decide what is appropriate for their family," said Christopher.
AT&T Smart Limits for Wireless is available for $4.99 a month for each line for AT&T wireless users who subscribe to a new or existing postpaid rate plan.
