    iPhone restrictions
    My toddler loves to play with my iPhone. She loves all the apps I have downloaded. I don't want to take it away from her, but do want her to be unable to call out. I have tried airplane mode but she is able to tap out of it very easily. I have also tried restrictions in the setting menu and that does not work either. With the exception of not letting her use it, does anyone have ideas?

    Specs:
    27" iMac i5, 3.2 GHz, iPad 3, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, Yosemite
    Buy her a toy cell phone that looks like a real iPhone. I don't know if one exists but I suspect that it does in some toy catalog or store. An expensive and delicate item such as the iPhone is not something that a child should be playing with.

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Disclaimer: I am not a parent, and am thus clueless and stupid and must hate children.

    It boggles my mind that anyone would give a toddler a (retail) $600+ item (of any sort) to play with. Sheer madness and begging for problems IMHO.

    I strongly second chscag's suggestion.

    I am a parent and I can see why a toddler is so interested. Especially when they see their parents spending so much time with said phone.

    If you aren't prepared just to stop her using it..... Perhaps consider getting a 2nd hand iPod touch?

    Thanks for suggestions
    Thank you for the time you guys took to respond to me. However, as I believe I stated, I am not looking for judgements or alternatives....just how to restrict phone calls only on my iPhone.
    My daughter is unable to speak and we are using the communication apps in hopes that she will someday be able to communicate through them. She already has her own iPad which she uses all the time...but she is very obsessed with my phone as well.

    If it's a direct answer you're after then it's a no. There's no way built into the iPhone to prevent outgoing calls unless you're prepared to pop the sim card out.
    That will transform the iPhone into and iPod touch and prevent calls
