Hi nicmoore3,

Let's look into this! Are you looking to prevent him from completely accessing data without having the monthly data plan removed? If so, we have a Family Base feature available. For details visit:http://vz.to/14D19Oa . We are here if you have any additional questions or concerns.

If by STOP you mean stop paying for a data plan then most likely not, as all smartphones on Verizon (including iPhone) require a data plan. If by stop you mean stop data access then Verizon might be able to block the data but you would still be responsible for the data plan, used or not.   If your son is in college, I would think data access on his iPhone would be an important part of his academic tool kit so stopping a student's access to the internet on his mobile device does not make sense to me.
