Today, July 10, Verizon announced a new service called FamilyBase that helps parents monitor their children’s cell phone usage. FamilyBase allows parents set allowable times for use, lock the device itself, and provide an allowance for apps or music. The first month of FamilyBase will be free for Verizon Wireless customers and cost $5 per month per account after that.
