AT&T halts cell restrictions on kids

September 26, 2007|From Times Wire Services

AT&T Inc. has suspended a service allowing parents to put limits on when their children's cellphones can be used because it could restrict return calls from 911 operators.

AT&T's Smart Limits service allows a child to call 911 even when restrictions are in effect. But if a child called 911 and was disconnected during restricted hours, a 911 operator would not be able to call back, spokesman Michael Coe said.
