We recommend a monthly data plan of 500MB to 1G. The data usage rate is highly dependent on the frequency of usage of certain features. Video calling takes up the most data usage. If you do not plan on using video calling very often, you may be able to sign up for a lower data plan.

Yes, as the primary administrator of your child’s dokiWatch, you will be able to manage and preset your child’s contact list through the Doki App. Only those preset contacts will be able to call your child’s dokiWatch and your child will only be able to call those contacts that you’ve preset. Unrecognized numbers will automatically be blocked.
