11yo DD wants a Nokia Asha 306. I am browsing like crazy but can't find anything definitive about setting up parental controls. Can anyone help? I won't buy the phone if I can't set up some filtering or controls. Thx!!
*I know somewhere on MN is a better topic but I couldn't find it, not even with Google.
Network providers do routinely filter on their 3G network but it won't help you at all when your daughter is at home connected to wifi.
The content control filters will do nothing on wifi. Best bet is education really. Don't rely upon filters alone.
That said, if you have a bit of technical knowledge or know someone who does, you could configure your router to use OpenDNS and that will offer a fairly decent filter for every device connected at home which will be good enough to deter casual/accidental surfing to dodgy parts of the Internet.
