The days of not being able to monitor an individual's cell phone activity have now come to an end. There is now software on the market that will allow you to monitor not only calls, but also text messages that are sent and received on a cell phone. This can be a great feature to ensure that your 10-year-old, who just got a new cell phone, is not placing calls or receiving text messages that are inappropriate for her age.
