How can I enable my child to make phone calls? &

Android

Sometimes you want to block all apps on your child’s devices but you still want them to be able to make and receive phone calls. If so then you need to make sure that the Phone app, Contacts app and sometimes the SIM Toolkit app are not blocked.

The SIM Toolkit app isn’t on all devices, but if it is then it’ll be in the Screen Time lists.

Apple

By default the phone app on Apple devices is left unblocked to allow kids to make emergency calls if they need to.
