Our teenage daughter texts over 15,000 messages per month. Can you limit the number of texts per month on a phone? She has an Iphone 6 and she has the unlimited texting, 500 phone call min plan. My wife and I would like to cap the texting around 2000 per month- the cap on the data works well and we would like to do the same with the texts

Hi Steve unfortunately there is no way to limit the amount of texts one can send.

You might have to get creative and just select a punishment for going over the text limit you think is reasonable, perhaps taking away her phone if she doesn't abide by your rules or something along those lines. If she thinks 15,000 messages in a month is acceptable let her know Even as someone here who works on their phone all day I think that many texts in just 30 days is insane like you seem to think...it's not normal lol. Have a great one and good luck.
