" To answer “does anyone know How can service can be turned off during certain timeframes?” … Smartphones have free parental controls available that will accomplish this.
With iOS 12’s Screen Time (iPhone 5S and up), you can turn off everything EXCEPT the Phone App. Or, you can choose what to allow- say for instance, your child’s teacher asks them to do work or use a school app- you can allow the Phone, (School App), and Browser. You can block Browser sites you don’t want them misusing (Youtube .com, etc.) OR you can Whitelist ONLY Websites allowed for school if you know the frequently used school websites they use in class- you can allow only those sites. Here’s how to set up iOS Screen Time:
For Androids, Google Family Link is offered for free. You can turn off all apps as well, or toggle on and off what apps you want used. While it is not as granular, and if you want some apps available (for school purposes) but not all, you’d need to manually go in (daily) and toggle which you want available. Then when they get home you’d need to toggle the rest on if you like. While tedious, it does work. The same with websites- you can block some, or choose to only allow certain ones (for school purposes if that is your situation).
We use iOS Screen Time for our iPhones and Google Family Link for our Android tablets because both are free. I’ve also heard others really like Our Pact, Boomerang, ScreenTime Labs, and quite a few others for Androids.
There are ways to do this- it just requires some steps on the parents’ part to put them in place. Also, here is a free tool for parent settings on most all of your devices to set parental settings and help keep your children safer:
I hope this helps someone! :)"
