Note: Smart Limits can be used to limit/restrict texting and data usage on most AT&T mobile devices, but cannot be used to set specific monthly limits for minutes or MMS messages.  All incoming calls are allowed at all times, including during time restrictions, except from numbers you designate as “Blocked Numbers.”  Smart Limits is not available on prepaid phones, tablets or corporate-liable accounts.  Smart Limits does not work for limiting/restricting data usage on non-LTE BlackBerry devices, or while user is in Wi-Fi mode.  Accuracy of data limits/restrictions is not guaranteed due to network and other technical limitations.  Other restrictions and limitations apply.  See for complete details.
