    Okay so you know on a normal computer.. The parental restrictions are much better than the iphone restrictions..

    I was wondering if apple was ever going to make it so you can restrict the amout of TIME that can be in use for example on a computer you can tell it to kick your son out after 2 hours... Do you think apple will do this in future updates..? will it be possible? I really hope this doesnt happen because if it does.. I KNOW i wouldnt be able to use my phone again...

    Would this be possible?
    Would apple do this?
    Would their be a way to get past this?

    It's certainly a possibility. However, if you were jailbroken, there would most likely be some sort of work-around.

    We won't know until then.

    Simple. Don't let your parents touch your iPhone. I have a passcode on mine and my mom didn't even complain about it when I took her phone to the BMX park and crashed, getting knocked out until the paramedics had me on a stretcher. she couldn't really call anyone.

    If it happens, it won't be until the 4.0 update.

    Nobody knows definitively. If I had to bet money on one outcome or the other, I would say /some/ form of timed parental control will be present in a future update.

    Don't lose any sleep over it, I'm sure there will be a workaround for jailbroken users.

    Though, if your parents bought it for you, don't complain.

    Why would they do that? Cell phone are for calling and Apple wouldn't restrict you from calling the police for help or let alone your mom
