The only easy and sure way is to take the phone at 10:00 and charge it out if her bedroom.   I am very tech savvy, and can come up with all kinds of ways to block. I also know kids will find ways around restrictions. i block wifi, kids uses cell access.   i block cell and wifi, kid gets wifi signal next door. not to mention this is a pain to maintain if i also want access but block her.

You asked another question about restricting her use of the "f" word - as others have suggested, take the phone away until she can use it responsibly and appropriately.

How old is your daughter?  If she is a minor, and you are the account owner, you have every right to take the phone, as you are the one responsible for the account.

My children are grown now, but when they were teens, the rules were that I could take their phone at any time and look at their messages, and their calls, since I was paying the bill and would be held accountable for what they did on the phones.  If they refused, or if I found inappropriate stuff, the phone was gone for a time.

Kids are pretty tech savvy; and if they are not, their friends are and will instruct them in workarounds.  The only sure way to stop the texting late at night is to take away the phone.
