Does anyone know if there is anyway (other than unplugging the phone line), to completely disable -or- lock the WebTV functionality. I have a three year old nephew who loves hitting the WebTV button.

Don't worry, at the rate Microsoft is going, WebTV is going to disable it self soon enough!

The only reason it ever dials on its own is to check email. You can set it up to never check and then it will not dial out on its own. The suggestion to put in your own phone number is a neat idea that you might want to do also.

Unless you have voice mail via the phone company. :)

I many areas dialing your own number will just make it ring as soon as the modem hangs up. Not sure that is what you want.


One would be better off to pick a local time/temperature number.
