          We off a feature called Usage Control, which allows you to control who can call/message the users on the account as well as who they can call/message for only $4.99 per month for each wireless number enrolled.

           

          Usage Controls enables you to:

           

          •        Set thresholds and hard stops for voice/messaging usage.

          •        Designate specific times during the day when your child is not permitted to use certain services on their wireless device.

          •        Create Call Blocking lists that will block incoming and outgoing calls/messages to up to 20 specific numbers.

          •        Block calls to 411 Search and calls from Private, Restricted, and Unavailable numbers.

          •        Customize the settings for each line on your account.

          •        Includes Content Filtering, allowing filters to restrict access to content such as V CAST Music on your child’s device.
