DISABLE TEXT MESSAGES
To disable incoming text messages, click MANAGE MY ACCOUNT at the top of this page. Go to the Phone Apps & More tab. Click Edit Message Settings. From there you can enter up to 10 phone or email addresses to block. Or you can select Disable Incoming Text Messages. However, choosing this option will block all incoming text messages sent to your phone... even international texts. This means you will not be able to receive text messages on your phone, except for Virgin Alert service messages.
You can restrict internet access in several ways. You can buy a plan with limited or no internet access, completely disable internet access, use the Content Filter, or use parental controls in the phone.
► CHOOSE A PLAN
There are 6 plans available from Virgin Mobile. The $30/month and $20/month payLo plans come closest to your needs.

Note that web access is available for the $20/month plan for $1.50/MB which comes from any balance in your Virgin Mobile account. To prevent internet
access completely, you would still need to contact Virgin Mobile to disable web access or use a parental control on the phone. The payLo plans and the
payLo phones are described at: http://www.virginmobileusa.com/cell-phone-plans/paylo-plans/overview/
► DISABLE INTERNET ACCESS
You can block all web access on your phone by clicking on 'SUPPORT' at the top of this page to contact Virgin Mobile's Customer Care. However,
you cannot opt out of paying for the web access if it is part of your plan. From the Downloads-Media page under Mobile Web: http://www.virginmobileusa.com/downloads/media
► CONTENT FILTER SETTINGS
Click MANAGE MY ACCOUNT.
Select the SETTINGS & PREFERENCES tab.
Select the EDIT SERVICE SETTINGS.
Select the SETTINGS & PREFERENCES tab. Change the setting to ON then click UPDATE.
When enabled by the account holder, the Content Filter will restrict access to harmful, obscene or otherwise inappropriate internet content from their device.
► PARENTAL CONTROLS
You can also block web access on some phones with Parental Controls. The payLo Kyocera Brio, Samsung Entro and Samsung Montage have built-in
Parental Controls. See the Owner's Manuals for parental control features at: http://www.virginmobileusa.com/phone-manuals-guides
