    We got my teenage son an iPhone 5C for Christmas. He is interested in jailbreaking it, but I am concerned that he would be able to circumvent the parental controls we have placed on the phone. (Just using the iOS controls, not an additional app.) Does anyone have any experience with this?

    Thanks!

    I didn't know of any jailbreak tweak designed to circumvent parental controls. Then I googled for "cydia tweak bypass parental controls" and sure enough there are lots of hits. So yes, a jailbreak would render parental controls useless. But what is it anyway that you don't want your son to do on his phone?

    no need for parental controls imo. our generation knows how to get around that kind of stuff. LA unified school district had some sorta restrictions/ parental controls on their ipads and the kids bypassed them with in a week so your son or a friend of his is eventually going to find a way to bypass or disable them
