Force childs ringer ON

    My kid turns his ringer off for several reasons. Is there phone control app that lets me force the ringer and text message notification on and password protects the settings? Or force ringer based on phone number. If possible a phone feature control app with password would be best...but I really need the feature above the most.

    I'm one of those ogres who wants the phone off in school and on when I call. "Everybody else is texting..." if everybody else jumped off a bridge....sigh. Never thought i'd have to use that one :)

    Use tasker. Program tasker so that when you call it turns on the ringer. Easy to do.

    Problem with Tasker is the kid could turn it off. I would suggest doing what my parents would probably do and threaten sudden and instant death if the kid kept doing it.

    Or you could just lock the app with an app like: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.sebastian.seal&feature=search_result (there is also a free version)



    I installed "selective silence" on my daughter's phone since she turns her ringer off a lot. With this app you select which numbers you want and it will ring regardless of whether the ringer is on or off.

    I just wish there was a way to have my phone ring at FULL volume when it's NOT set to silent mode. I have an HTC Desire Z and it is way too easy to unintentionally lower the volume so I won't hear it ring. Any app that can do that?

    Do this and customize the ringtone to the Barney theme song after one or two embarrassing calls it will be "I'm sorry mom ill leave it on please make it stop"

    Do what my parents do. Threaten to take away the phone. :p
