AT&T Smart Limits℠ App Reviews

  • I tried...

    By Memes utopia
    I thought since we use At&T that maybe things would go well, but no. I got it to limit our teens texting and limit night/school usage. It blocked unrestricted people and some of her friends could still text her. Not all texts showed up in the tracking and her big complaint, texts sent to her during school time never came through later even though they showed up as delivered on her friends (or her moms) phone.

    It does not let you set data limits. I can’t help but think this is on purpose. By making it harder to automatically limit data the obvious result is more overage charges.
  • Disappointed so far

    By RKirby75
    Downloaded two days ago and the app either won’t let me in or if it does, it makes me go through the whole set up deal again and I’m only able to navigate though for a little bit. Guess I expected a lot more also. Plus it says it’s not even all that accurate after setting the limits. What’s the point then?
  • Limiting everything

    By Tirobb
    Downloaded the app to limit use on school nights. It has been limiting everything on every single night, even though l only have school nights selected. And l turned them off and it still is limiting stuff. Very frustrating!
  • Doesn't work properly

    By Beat76
    It doesn't block contacts , doesn't show texts
  • Crashes

    By Charles' Girl
    Whenever I open the app it allows me to look at the different phones but only for a minute or 2 then freezes and crashes and kicks me off.
  • What happened?

    By queenOscotts
    I’ve been using the app for several months with success. For about a month now I’ve been getting an alert when I open it that there is a temporary problem and I get logged out. Annoying! Please fix this!
  • Too many technical issues

    By LeetLeet
    I’ve never used an app where I’m constantly signing in. Several times a day you can’t sign in due to an error code for technical difficulties.
  • Generally dissatisfied

    By Qwerty32399
    This app is buggy and frequently just closes without warning. It also asks you if you want to stay logged in and then only “honors” that request about half of the time. If I could find a different app to control my children’s phone usage, I’d get it in a heartbeat.
  • Ridiculous

    By cinj
    This app is a joke. It doesn’t show any of my child’s texting activity and he’s been on the phone constantly. Totally ineffective. I only wish I could give 0 stars
