Blocking adult sites

I have a teen age child that is using his phone to get access to adult sites.  I have tried to get blocks on his phone at Verizon and they are saying it's not possible with this phone.  I NEED HELP!  Is there anyway to block this from his phone?  I want to stop all the porn from his phone as well as his ability to get any pictures sent to him from his "friends".  Is any of this possible with this phone or do I just need to down grade him to a kiddie phone that I can block?

There is no way to block all porn. I'm not sure how you'd think that would work. Here's an idea, take his phone away from him.

Yea it's a little hard to do that:  You could try this Option see if might work but it would be on your End Not Verizon's  if you can get the Phone out of your Sons hands Long enough Go to Either the Chrome or the Built in Browser).  When it Open's Tap the Settings, Go to Advanced, In Advanced Go to Website Settings see if there is a Way to Block it) Try that and see that works if Not then i'd go with Brian's other Suggestion pull the Phone..

Get him a basic phone.  Drop his data plan and text plan and save $30 on data and $10 on text.  On the other hand, just accept that he's growing up and you can't stop that.

Nope.  Once the horse is out of the barn, there's no getting it back in, so to speak.

Sadly regardless of what you do in aspects of getting a "dump" phone you child will just borrow his friends phone to get what he needs.  Maybe some counseling is in order for him.

VZW if you're reading this you might want to look into adding this type of feature for content blocking being all phones have to go through your network in order to get to the internet so it's shouldn't be too hard to set up content filtering per device and charge a monthly fee.  Also being able to block MMS to only approved senders would be another good idea being more and more children are getting smart phone now a days.

Verizon Wireless does offer Parental Controls for a monthly fee.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
