To hell with children. Can't parents put a cap on the amount of data they allow their kids to use? If not, parents shouldn't buy their kids smartphones. Give him or her a "feature phone" and an ipod/wifi-only ipad.

My game n watch had no data plan, did I complain? No. I was happy to have Snake on my second cell phone. Oh, and Memory.

Sometimes I think cell carriers are secretly rubbing their hands with glee when parents have no way of capping their kids' usage. It's like how banks used to operate: a huge chunk of their profits came from overdraft and ATM fees. They WANT you to screw up.

Anyway, thanks to everyone who has voted! Please keep them coming! One of these days you may want to find the answer to the same question!
