Unfortunately not @Benlfc1990, you would need to be on Tesco to do that currently.

However , you can get an international call bar placed on the account to prevent overseas calls. Just ask customer services.

You still can't I'm afraid. Maybe Tesco, which runs on the o2 network, may be the best bet as they do cap. On O2 data is automatically capped but minutes aren't.

@Benlfc1990 Lock your phone with a numerical password, and don't tell your kids what it is. Problem solved.

I DO NOT WORK FOR O2
