just another outlet for pervs. SmartLimit is a good idea, though. Who can afford the time and money for a court subpoena? I am paying for this service...guess I should just cut and run. We lived fine before cell, I guess we'll live fine after. If enough people would agree to disconnect at least text service, I bet somebody would change their mind.Another mom of a troubled teen.

In my case it's not that i want to constantly invade my son's privacy- but there is one little girl in particular that i am very concerned about the content of her text messages. I don't want to take away texting from him totally becuase of this girl- but I don't like enabling this behavior either. Heck- sometimes it's just the mere knowing that I could monitor it that keeps them in line. It doesn't have to be about control. There should be no presumption of privacy from the standpoint of the cell phone company between parent and child. Just like companies have no presumption of privacy with employee email- it's the same principal. The parent provides the cell phone to allow the child some freedom and to keep them reachable when they are out with friends. I started allowing texting with my daughter so that if there was trouble and she didn't want to talk- she could text me. that works well. So I afford the same privildege to my son. we shouldn't assume anyone's purpose for usage of the phone or usage of the parental controls. This would be a valuable feature.- I'm ready to cancel the texting on my son's phone because of one child. from a financial point of view---you keep me as a customer if i could monitor this and i'd pay a few bucks for that priviliedge. at some point my concern will be enough to just shut it off. - any response that states some right to privacy on those text message is in my book totally invalid. He is a minor. I buy the phone. I pay for the service. I have a right to monitor other influences (TV, Radio, etc)- I should have the right to monitor this.
It's a paid service that does what you want it to do.
He will know it's there and so will you.
If he gripes, then cancel messaging altogether.
