At the same time, the mobile phone carrier
announced that it plans on deploying a content filtering solution from Bytemobile, so as to offer parents the possibility to manage the content their children have access to on their mobile phones.
The new solutions should become available for all of over 800,000 subscribers the Little Rock, Arkansas-based wireless carrier accounts for.
