Keeping control of our little one’s devices jennbuck1996 is important. There are a few ways that you can do this on the iPhone models. You are able to turn your cellular data off completely, but they are always able to turn it back on. We do offer a feature called Family Base that will allow you to set a limit. Once this limit is reached, the only way that they will be able to use data is when they are connected to WiFi. Here is some additional information about Family Base http://vz.to/1yy9XIR

I would try family base as well. You can actual set settings to cap children on data usage and you can monitor it as well. It is 4.99 a month but i think it's totally worth it. Verizon Wireless - It's the Network

Well there are several ways.

Pay Verizon thru family base to do the parenting for you.

TAke away the cell phone.

Give them a basic phone instead.

The phone could also be moved to prepaid if there's no contract commitment. Use up the data, and the data will stop for the rest of the month Smiley Happy.
