With the growth of MBB Internet service in the country, parents are getting more and more concerned about the unlimited access of their children to various Internet contents. Therefore, MTN Irancell has launched the first phase of its Kids & Teens Service with the aim of creating a safe platform to enable kids and teenagers' access to useful contents only.

According to Irancell Public Relations, parents can activate the Kids & Teens Service on prepaid or postpaid SIM Cards for free, simply by dialing *543*1# and entering the required information. This way, the SIM Card will turn into "Kids & Teens SIM Card". Also, it can be easily deactivated by dialing *543*3#.

Kids & Teens Service will make no change in sending/receiving voice call and SMS. However, upon activating the service, the Internet access via this SIM Card will be restricted to a list of websites whose contents are specifically developed for kids and teenagers, such as interesting educational contents, entertainments, etc. Thus, users will have no access to any other website out of this list.

Moreover, the newly launched Kids & Teens Service makes it possible for parents to set time restriction on using the Internet by their children. Upon dialing*543*2#, users of the service cannot access the Internet after 10 P.M.

Free text-based services including "More on Prayers" and "Sports Celebrities", access to Irancell Ketabkhan application offering various kids and teens books, and access to various websites specifically designed for children and teenagers, such as Pooya TV, Aparat/Kids, Kayhan Bacheha (special magazine for children), Tebyan Kids Virtual Land (TKVL), Golhaye Behesht, Koodakaneh, Dorduneh, Jahane Koodakan, Salam Zaban, Iranian Children National Library (ICNL), Quiz Center and Jazireh Danesh are among the services offered through MTN Irancell Kids & Teens SIM Cards.

According to this report, the ability to manage Kids & Teens SIM Cards by parents through the Internet portal, customize the list of allowed websites, enjoy interesting video, audio and text-based services for kids and teenagers, and have access to various mobile applications and VitrinTM contents which are specifically designed for kids and teenagers are also among the many more features which are going to be offered in near future along with the new Kids & Teens Service.
