  • After unblocking kids data - they can’t get data anymore

    By DreamBig19(me)
    I’ve called ATT NUMEROUS times to remove Smertlimits from my 4 daughters phones, as they haven’t been able to get in cellular data ever since. Att is saying they can’t remove it as there is still an active subscription through iTunes. I explained NUMEROUS times, I cancelled the subscription and iTunes no longer considers me as having an active subscription. I also clicked Close Account in the Smart Limits app, which it apparently recognized as happening because now when I go to login to SmartLimits, it says I don’t have an account for any of my 5 phones. It’s been over a month with us not having cellular data. Att first told us it was a tower down in the area, yet when I explained if I drove an entire state away that I still don’t have data. Then Att tells me to call iTunes and figure it out. ITS NOT ITUNES! I closed the account through SmartLimits app!! I’m a software engineer, so this kind of incompetence is beyond negligent. I’ve been an att customer for over 20 years!

    AT&T charges a monthly fee for this app that hardly ever works. I’ve been getting error network domain messages for months off and on. I call to get technical support, no one ever calls and they can’t offer tech support when I call. Bug fixes haven’t been updated in over a year so they have obviously gave up on this app but take peoples money monthly who doesn’t realize it doesn’t work.
  • Poorly designed

    By Comcast subscriber
    Lots of bells and whistles, but not what you need. I really want to throttle my kids data speed when they hit a cap so they do not stream video. I don’t want to cut them off all together. This is something you could already do with the other att app.
  • Worthless

    By DysonG
    Worst service ever. Added the feature but hadn’t restricted anything and it blocked the phones usage completely. Tried turning it off and that didn’t help. Tried to just remove the feature from my account and nope errors out and I have to call AT&T and get a complete run around about it
  • Decent at best. $10 to mange two lines?!?

    By atldeadhead
    As others have pointed out this app is feature lacking. It is nice to be able to shut off cellular data during certain hours but it would be beneficial to be able to have the ability to limit use after x amount of use hours. Probably the worst feature is the high cost. $10/month is ridiculous. I’m hoping the app limits and screen time features in iOS 12 will allow me to control my kids device usage with feature rich apps and no cost.
  • Crashes

    By Curtis L P
    The app crashes and shuts down within a minute every time it’s opened. Then have to log back in and cannot get into what I want to see without it happening again. It’s constant and needs to be fixed.
  • Limited options!

    By Heart raiser
    This app ought to be free! It’s fairly pricey for such basic features! It doesn’t offer many options other than turning all bundled data (internet, phone, messages) either on or off. You ought to be able to isolate each type of data and it should offer options of how to restrict it, such as max data per given time or limit the amount of internet or etc. but allow calls or texts.
  • Wouldn’t recommend

    By s.tyrisha
    It’s useless to monitor if we can’t see the actual text message
  • Horrible

    By MardyMarv260
    Does not let you limit your data per phones All it lets you do is turn off the data Not worth your time or money
  • FIX IT!

    By Ayogurlllllol
    It makes me log in every single time I go to the app! And it doesn’t even load the first time I open it! I have to close it and then open it again smh! And it doesn’t show anything anymore every time I have to log in 😡😡
