Kid's phone

I want to make my kid's phone so that she can only call. No texting, no internet. Is that possible?

Parental controls can limit, but I'm not sure it can limit that much.

You might want to consider using a basic phone for this particular line and adding text and data blocks to the line. 

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

If you don't need location tracking, why not go with just a basic flip-phone (or any kind of non-smart phone)?  You can pick up a cheap phone and worry no more.
