I have never owned a smart phone so need some advice. My 12 year old niece has had one for a while but it has broken. She is now living with us and I am not content with her accessing the internet using her phone as it is outside my control and I cannot filter content. She wants another smart phone to replace her old one. Before I give in I would like to know is it possible to block internet access on these phones. It would be a pay as you go but wondering if charges are high enough to stop her using it. I can control the wifi access at home so it is when she is not in the house that I am worried about. The phone she is using at the moment is a vodafone android (so she tells me anyway). Is there a phone that you can recommend that would be easy to switch off internet.

There are a couple of ways to take care of this issue. Most carriers can put a data block on the account to restrict access to the internet (for people who dont have data plans). You just need to call in and ask for it.

The majority of Android phones now give the option to turn data off from within the phone. The option for this is usually found in: Settings>Wireless and Networks>Mobile Network Options.

Alternatively Settings>Data options (if not found in above path>
