suspend data on child's phone temporarily

Hi there,

Is there an option on my telstra account where I can temporarily turn off my child's data until the end of the billing cycle as they have exceeded it and I don't want to pay extra.


Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: suspend data on child's phone temporarily

No. You'll have to grab their phone and go in to setting to either turn off mobile data, or the better way is to set the limit on the phone so that it can only use a certain amount.


Settings->Data Usage->Set mobile data limit.


Just remember to set the start date of you billing cycle to the right date.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
