Any kind of parental control for Nokia 520 Windows 8?

Just bought the Nokia 520 windows 8 phone for my teen (14). Looking for any kind of parental control or family safety. My Family App doesn't do much. I show on my family live safety account that her windows phone is being monitered yet shows no activity. I'm a bit confused..

Lumia 810 and 521 both have it. You may have to manually check.

Love or hate Apple, their control of software updates is the best in the business. Carriers suck at it.

Microsoft Commercial Comparision

After reading this review I am even more sure that Microsoft wasn't in it's right mind when they compared this phone the the GS4 and said the Lumia 521 is better and superior to the GS4.

No flash for the camera=fail

I would have considered picking one up had the included a flash for the camera. I wonder how much that really would drive up the price..? This will be pretty useless in low light night indoor shots etc. I'll stick w my L9. Puzzling to me they tout the camera yet leave that off.

I'm really curious to see what the hardware specs will be. For it to be considered a "Hero" phone, it will need to significantly bump up specs. This is in light of the GS4's release from n May. I'm thinking quad-core, 16, 32 & 64 gigabit options, all having microSD slots to support up to 64 gigabit microSD. Upgrading the camera sensor that would be on par with the GS4's camera or better. Until recently, the Nokia 920 seemed to be king of the camera phones in certain aspects.

Screen size should be between 4.5 & 4.8 inch screens. For those who don't want the larger screens due to preference or smaller hands, Nokia could release a 4.3 inch variant, with the same spec offerings. Couple all this with that aluminum body that they've been talkin...

Ugh why

Moves like Tmobile getting the 521 are just stupid! It doesn't even have a flash on the camera. Why would they not at least get the 620 or better yet the 720 which looks better then there 810! Who makes these poor descisions.
