Why can my son use his device when I have put time restrictions on it?

I have placed time restrictions on my son's phone, however, he claims he can use the phone during those restricted times, texting, data (Instagram), etc. How can this be?


Thx,

Jeff

The time restrictions won't prevent wifi usage including iMessages.

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

Are you using Verizon's usage controls or parental controls or what ever they call it now?

Personally outside of blocking numbers and text messages and usage alerts I think it may not work all the time.

Maybe read the FAQ's and see if what you are trying to do actually can be done.

Iphones for the most part don't follow the same rules when it comes to external apps or programs not approved by Apple.

Good Luck
