Is anyone using Bemilo and if so how are you finding it?

For those who haven't heard of it, Bemilo is a sim card where the parents can monitor their children's phone activity, set times (i.e. during school hours) when the phone is off etc.

Bump, I've thought about this for mine but don't know much about it

Probably couldn't get one in Malaysia and I trust my DD not to use it at school.

I'm researching too - looks really good so I am checking it out further. I came across this in another mumsnet thread on it:

"Googling last week, I came across bemilo - a PAYG sim +safety subscription service that enables you to set time windows within which the child can call or text or access data. So I can set it to 7am - 9am and 3.30pm to 8.30pm weekdays and 7am to 8.30pm weekends for calls and texts, and turn data off altogether for now. Also she has to give me the numbers she wants to add to her phone, for me to add to the bemilo account. Then we can keep an eye on who she's talking to and for how long. And if any bullying occurs we can block that person immediately.
It's a bit Big Brothery, but she's still very young and we can loosen the reins a little as she gets older and proves she's responsible. I can log on and relax the restrictions whenever I like. Oh and any number listed as a parent in your account is accessible even in locked down periods. Which is nice."
If you did end up using it, would be grateful for what you thought too...

I looked at Bemilo but thought it was expensive for what it was. If your child has an android phone then you can use Alphablue or Mobiflock to do the same thing. You need to set up an account on a PC and then download the app onto the child's phone.
