AT&T to Let Parents Limit Kids' Cell Calls

It may be something of a teenage nightmare: limits on when a wireless phone can make and receive calls and to whom, restrictions on text messages and talk time, and set allowances for ring tones and other downloads - all at a parent's fingertips. AT&T, the nation's largest wireless carrier, will launch a service Tuesday giving parents that kind of wide-ranging control on almost all of its 63.7 million subscriber lines. Smart Limits plan to offer features ranging from call blocking and hour limits to text message and download allowances, which may be set by parents through a Web site.
