    Default Pandora eating my daughters data!

    My little one is only 5 she has a 32gb white Ipad mini and 5 gb data plan with verizon. Its 6.1.2 jailbroken, She has a cover that locks the device out, Im guessin lockout is the same as sleep? Well I would like the device to also kill pandora when she closes the cover so she wont have the volume low and still be eating away her data. I have searched for days. The best I can find is to enable Airplane mode at a certain time, and enabling it in the morning. But I would like to figure this one out so that it doesnt happend during the day lol thanks guys I been from a apple iphone 4 to a android and Im back I cant stand android.. Anywho have a good day and looking forward to your solutions!
    I would like a solution so I can use pandora on my phone also and if I forget to close it my data wont be hacked at.

    You would have to turn off Pandaora. The smart cover only turns off the screen.

    Does cellular data have to be enabled on the device? I'm assuming she only uses it the majority of the time when she's at home and if that's true then just enable Wi-Fi when she wants to listen to Pandora.

    Not sure if activator has additional options for ipads-- to use the lock cover as an action. You may be able to just assign the lock button to close all apps. Other option would be to put music onto the ipad and put that 32gb to use.

    BatteryDoctorPro has an auto app killer while locked. may be worth looking into. Replaces sbssettings / ncsettings but goes further with more options.

    Perhaps a better plan is to not leave data management in the hands of a 5 year old?

    Apparently he's under the impression that only developers know how the smart cover interacts with the iPad.

    How about using one of those things we call rational thinking? Most adults use it.

    She's 5. 5GB is more than most people need. In fact, there are a couple of us on my plan and we use ~1-2gb/month. The phone pulls a lot more data. But, the frequent use of wifi reduces the data plan drain.

    AT&T's 5GB plan is $50/mo. Compare that against the 3GB for $30 or the 250MB for $15.
    I can only assume you have the same plan for yourself. Dropping from 5GB to 3GB saves $40/mo.

    links you to the various AT&T Uverse options for internet. There are a couple around the $40/mo price range. This service comes with a wireless router.

    Also, includes a listing of inexpensive wireless routers for you to choose between.

    Dropping the data plan to afford the wifi won't cost you more. It'll solve your "problem." It'll help ensure you won't go over your data.

    Default Pandora eating my daughters data!

    Just a quick, sorta off-topic question. Why is there so much animosity on these forums from people when they find out a kid has an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch? We live in a connected society and children are learning to use this technology from the time when they are born.

    Parents that give their children technology at a young age are only helping to prepare them for the evermore connected world that they are growing into.

    We need to keep in mind that this is a technology forum. Parenting decisions are not a factor here, and it would be better to keep that from the discussion. Instead of attacking parents, lets help them solve their technology problems, like this forum was created to do.

    I guess it's similar to being off-topic and making threats of jail time for jailbreaking?

    It's not the iDevice that brings out me suggesting they need to re-evaluate their situation. It's the poor decision making. The drain on the data isn't related to anything other than a streaming music service. This is an easy thing to fix.

    Read through the thread. When the smart cover was explained, the OP resorted back with something so irrelevant it could only be aggressive. If you'd like to politely respond to someone who hasn't taken the time to look at their big picture, that's your prerogative. They clearly didn't pay attention to the polite response.

    Context matters. It's not so much the child having the device that brings it out. It's the attitude of the OP that brings out my less than personable attitude.

    A solution was given. If you'd like to hear my views on that individual's parenting, you're welcome to find me off the forums. I assure you, I kept most of it out already.

    I don't think it's necessarily animosity, but more of a generational difference. Parents can give their kids whatever they want. It is their choice, their decisions and their children. However, some of us believe that kids of a certain age group, in general, should not have ownership of certain things. Again, I'm speaking in general terms. That is not a knock on the OP, but it is an observation that many people share (particularly an older generation). To be fair, however, there is probably an equal number of people who believe that young children can only benefit from early exposure to smartphones and tablets and there is nothing wrong with their thinking. It is merely different from others and nothing more.

    It has little to do with introducing kids to technology but everything to do with kids not being held responsible for things such as data. Giving a 5 year old pandora and expecting them to close out the app properly is a little much. At that age, effectively navigating any electronic is a triumph. However, it quickly shows they aren't yet ready to handle the full spectrum of necessary responsibility.

    Couple things seem strange in this. No wireless at home, how about Internet in general? A wireless router would be much cheaper.

    I thought the solution above detailing how to get Internet/wifi in the home for the same cost as having the data plan was a good suggestion. Maybe not what the OP was looking for, but it seemed to be a reasonable suggestion. I did not think it was an attack on parenting, just an alternate way not to go over the data plan limit.

    That being said, I have a 5 year old and she does have an iPad mini but there's no way I'd trust her with a data plan. Same reason that her iPad is not connected to my credit card for purchases. Just too much that can go unintentionally wrong for a 5 year old to deal with-at least for my 5 year old.

    I totally understand a 5 year old using the technology, but it would be good if she can learn to double tap the home and kill the app there. Something which I know people teach their kids playing games on the phones.

    Teach her how to close pandora or stop the music when done or she don't get to use the app ?

    Both my kids 6 and 3 have a ipad 2 .. And I think it's the best thing ever my wife was against it but now she sees why I introduced it to them. My oldest ranked advanced on her state testing for reading and math.

    That being said I they both have wifi only I'm the only one with a Verizon model.

    I would suggest investing in home wifi it would solve both your issues. Or teach her how to kill apps I know it's possible because my 6 year old know how.
    Just throwing out ideas
    Does the pandora app have any options ?
