After dialing 911, Verizon Smart Family controls become disabled. According to Verizon's web site, I must log in, navigate to the ad-on, and there will be a prompt that a child called 911 and to re-enable the feature. This prompt is absolutely nowhere. The add on appears fine online, but now does not work. There is no way for me to re-enable it. Does anyone know a way for me to re-enable it? This is a HUGE flaw in this app as this has happened before, and I had to call Verizon, reach a tier-2 support tech, and wait until someone re-enabled the add on. I am supposed to be able to do it myself, but I can't.
We can certainly try to find out what is going on. The option should be located either on our website, or on the Companion Smart Family App here: https://www.verizon.com/support/knowledge-base-220141/
Have you attempted it on both the website, and the Smart Family Companion App? Is it not appearing on either? Please let us know.
The smart family companion app has nothing to it. It just says device not connected. No settings, no options, nothing. The smart family app just looks normal. There is nothing on your website. Theres just nothing anywhere. This is horribly bad programming for the most basic of cell functionality.
That is definitely strange, we did want to get that clarification, as it should definitely be an option, it is strange that it is not showing up, and lets get it working for you. Please send us a Private Note, so we may be able to assist.

Thank you so much for those details. We do want to make sure that we can get Smart Family set back up after a call was made to 911. So we can get a better look at the specifics, I have sent you a Private Note. Please reply to that message. Thank you.
