I've just got my iPhone 5S (upgrade) smile and want to give my iPhone 4 to DS1 (9). All I want it to do is play music and games. Can I do this? And if so, how?

TIA

Airplane mode.

I use my old 4s as an iPod for the car and only need to charge it up about once every 10 days.

If you strip all the apps off it you'll free up a load of memory too.

Fantastic...thank-you. If I leave apps on that he's allowed will he be able to use them?

Yeah as long as they don't need the Internet to function they will work fine.

Brilliant. Thank-you so much smile

He'll still be able to hop on to your wireless internet. Make sure your iTunes account is fully passworded!

Thanks. Fully passworded but he won't be using it without me being able to see what he's doing anyway!

You should have a read of THIS THREAD confused shock

I posted the following info on it. It might not be 100% relevant but hopefully it's of some use. I am sure you already know most of it but I thought it better to be thorough on the other thread smile

FOR iOS7

THE BASICS FOR STOPPING UNINTENTIONAL IN-APP PURCHASES

1) keep your iTunes password private and not guess'able

2) Enable restrictions
SETTINGS >>>> GENERAL. >>> RESTRICTIONS >>> then enter and re-enter a non-guessable 4 digit PIN number.

3). Then turn off in-app purchases
SETTINGS >>>> GENERAL. >>> RESTRICTIONS >>> your PIN NUMBER >>>>. Turn off IN-APP PURCHASES

4) Require a password every time you make an iTunes purchase. This is your Apple ID password.
SETTINGS >>>> GENERAL. >>> RESTRICTIONS >>> your PIN NUMBER >>>> REQUIRE PASSWORD >>>> toggle it to IMMEDIATELY

5). Remove your credit card from your iTunes account and use itunes vouchers.

6) turn off autofill and credit card info
SETTINGS >>> SAFARI >>> PASSWORDS AND AUTOFILL >> toggle off NAMES AND PASSWORDS AND turn off CREDIT CARDS

BLOCKING ADULT WEB CONTENT (ie porn 'n stuff)

Even if you have decent controls on your home network and it's worth following the info in the following THIS LINK This feature is even more important if your child has a 3G device or accesses the internet via networks with no controls.

PRIVACY

I recommend that anyone who is concerned about privacy and has Apple devices running iOS7 have a look at THIS LINK . It details how you can prevent pesky Apple and other apps accessing information about you.

Disclaimer, I am happy to have the above info corrected. I think its right but I am not at all an expert

This info is for iOS7 only.
