ParentShield not only protects children, it also protects their parents.
Unlike every other network, we aggressively block everything that could lead to an increased bill. MMS, overseas numbers, Text Shortcodes, Premium rate numbers, Directory enquiries etc are all blocked.
Once the phone has reached its monthly usage limits, the only numbers that can be called are the two special “home” numbers so they can always call and text home without having to top up.
This is particularly important in a child’s mobile phone as it’s quite normal on a basic adult PAYG service for children to use all of their allowance and then there is no option other than to top up extra so they can still call home.
If you are going abroad, just give us a call, a text or use the handy form on the ParentShield App. This will allow us to enable calls to and from that country. In most cases this is free of charge but will vary depending on the country.
