as above 2. does offer it albeit pretty much a "blanket" restriction. Instructions below.
1 Choose General > Restrictions, then tap Enable Restrictions.
2 Enter a four-digit passcode.
3 Reenter the passcode.
4 Set the restrictions you want by tapping individual controls on or off. By default, all
controls are on (not restricted). Tap an item to turn it off and restrict its use.
Turn off all restrictions: Choose General > Restrictions, then enter the passcode. Tap
Disable Restrictions, then reenter the passcode.
NOTE:If you forget your passcode, you must restore your iPod touch software from iTunes.
See “Updating and Restoring iPod touch Software” on page 110.
The only thing I see for parental control is under settings on the ipod touch itself. Go to setting > choose General > Restrictions, then tap Enable restrictions. This will shut safari off and what ever else you want. The only restrictions you can do is shut the apps off completely. I have not found a App in the app store or on ipod to control certain sites on the web. its all or nothing. I hope this helps.
Just curiosity, were you able to block the website feature, putting the blanket over the entire website, or was it limited to setting for certain websites (which means you have to manually type the websites that you want to block)?
I'm about the buy a ipod touch to my 15 yr son and have a same concern about the websites. I hope that there's a setting that once you set, then you cannot even get connected to any websites (by setting the pass code).
Any info will be appreicaited (from anyone).
