Sprint Boosts Parental Controls
Sprint today announced Sprint Mobile Controls, a new set of tools that parents can use to manage their childrens' cell phones and cell phone usage.

Parents will be able to see who their children have been texting and how often text messages are being sent; set limits on when the phone can/can't be used; block/allow select phone numbers; and view apps that are being downloaded and used. Parents can also choose to set up alerts, allow overrides for emergencies, and set watch lists. Sprint Mobile Controls is first available to Android smartphones and costs $4.99 per month per line. Sprint said that it plans to add support for BlackBerry and other operating systems soon.
