I work in the Education industry and I see a very large demand for per-line managed service. Parents want to get their kids a cell phone, but are worried about a few things. Who's calling or texting them? Are they on the phone at school, texting and using the internet all day long? Where are they right now?
This would probably work very well for Business use as well.
a. Administrator / Master / Parent login that has full control over all phones and settings. Employee / Child login that is either read-only or has access to settings that are assignable by the Administrator login.
b. Approved "Friends". I'd like to be able to restrict what numbers a particular phone can call and text.
c. Time limits on talk, text, and data. Allow Timmy 1 hour of data usage (or 20MB), 50 texts, and 2 hours of talk per day.
d. Schedules: Timmy shouldn't be allowed to talk to his friends after 9pm or before 6am.
e. Groups. I would like to be able to assign different time limits for different groups. For example: Timmy shouldn't be able to talk to his friends more than 2 hours per day, but he should be able to call Mom, Dad, Grandma, and Aunt Gertrude any time.
f. Up-to-date call logs. I'd like to know who called Timmy 10 minutes ago.
g. Text message transcripts viewable online.
Something extra: Since most phones have gps capability, offer as a service, GPS Family / Employee Tracking. Timmy didn't get on the bus after school and won't answer his phone. Where is he?
Just a few ideas... People already love that you can turn off texting and data at a whim. But they want more.
Thanks for reading.
