[AT&T announces increased level of parental control including increases in blocked numbers and additional costs controls. ]

Dallas -- AT&T* today announced the addition of two new enhancements to AT&T Smart Limits for Wireless, bringing an increased level of parental control to two of the service's most popular features. Compatible with AT&T's quick messaging and feature phones such as the HTC Freestyle™ and LG Neon™ II – especially popular amongst teens – the enhancements provide adults with even more control over their child's mobile phone experience, and complement AT&T's broader suite of safety and management tools provided through AT&T Smart Controls.

New updates include:

* Increase in Blocked Numbers: Block more numbers than ever before. Parents can now block up to 30 numbers, twice the previous number, to prevent unwanted or harassing calls and text messages on their child's phone. The feature extends to both incoming and outgoing calls and text messages and can be modified at any time. * Additional Cost Controls: Add 411 calls to a restricted list of numbers. To help parents better manage call and download activity, AT&T Smart Limits for Wireless provides cost control tools to limit or restrict download purchases and calls – now including calls made to 411.

As one of AT&T's leading services for parents, AT&T Smart Limits for Wireless provides additional peace of mind and control when managing a child's wireless experience.

In addition to the above, service features include:

* Establish times of day the phone can be used for mobile Web browsing, messaging and outbound calls.

* Filter access to Internet content that is inappropriate for children.

* Define the number of text and instant messages allowed.

* Determine the amount of Web browsing usage allowed per billing cycle.

* Limit downloadable purchases such as ringtones, games, graphics and other content to a certain dollar amount.

AT&T Smart Limits for Wireless is available for $4.99 a month per line to AT&T consumers who subscribe to a postpaid wireless rate plan.
