Re: Blocking a mobile

With Telstra, in theory you could use Mobile Protect to control times and website categories, but in reality Mobile Protect doesn't work properly. I had it set up for my kids' mobiles, but now the part of MyTelstra that should allow me to manage Mobile Protect has gone.


With Apple, you could use ScreenTime. You would need to create a child's Apple ID that's linked to your Apple ID, and then you can block according to a schedule or limit apps and websites. It's great once it's set up! The only way for the child to get around it is to log out of the Apple ID, so my kids don't know the Apple ID password so they can't log out!

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
