How do you temporarily turn off data to a single phone on family plan?

I have a family plan on Verizon with 2 of the S7 edge and 1 of the iphone 6. 

Is there a way to temporarily turn off data to one of the phones without paying an extra fee?  I thought I've done this in the past but can't seem to find the setting now.

Please let me know.  Thanks.

Atomarchio1, there is nothing like having complete control of your account. I definitely agree with my friend Rcschnoor on Family Base. It's the most effective way to control the amount of data available to each line. Here's more information >> http://vz.to/1Y2lybk  http://vz.to/1SMuJg0

Yes, there is a way to do it without a fee, but the user of the iPhone 6 can just as easily turn that method off.

Go into the settings on the iPhone 6. Turn cellular data off. Of course, anyone using that iPhone 6 can just as easily go into the settings and turn cellular data back on at any time.

If you want a method which the phone user would not be able to bypass easily, you would have to subscribe to Family Base which is $5/month for your entire account.

I thought there was a free way to turn off mobile data to specific phone.

Was that feature previously available and now gone?
