    I am giving my son an andriod smart phone and I want to block everything during school time so he can't do anything except sending and receiving calls.
    Is this possible?

    Not in stock options, I'm afraid. Some phones (like Samsung's) offer a 'Kids Mode', and I believe there's a feature to limit phone-use time, but not sure if it can set time periods for just calls.

    There are, however, 3rd party apps (most likely paid ones) that do allow some apps/phone functions to be blocked. If your son isn't tech-savvy, you can also set an automation app like Tasker to automatically turn mobile data off during certain hours and turn it back on after school (might even work with location, but that's a bit trickier to get right). Problem with that approach is that he could easily turn back data if he knows how.
