    I've found my way into android's wireless advanced settings, and I've put in OpenDNS IP where it ask for DNS. But yet no luck. How do I get OpenDNS to work?:sad:

    What is your Android wirelessly connected to? To a router, *your* router? Are more of your devices connected to this router? Which ones?

    Please note, OpenDNS is nothing for devices, but for networks. So, if you do not own the network you're connecting to, it is hardly possible to use OpenDNS at all.

    "[I]f you do not own the network you're connecting to, it is hardly possible to use OpenDNS at all."

    That's not entirely true. With help from some others at precentral.net using the underlying Linux operating system, I've managed to setup OpenDNS to work on my webOS smartphone, even on Sprint's network. It wasn't easy, though.

    I know, but this way you are going to hi-jack other networks and impacting other OpenDNS users within the same network. Would you like to experience this yourself? :shocked:
    And you may still not be able to use OpenDNS, not at all, depending on the policies the other network admins have enforced.

    Again: OpenDNS is nothing for devices, but for networks. This stands!

    This is a very interesting topic. I'm very greatful for the opendns site and how it has protected my home. I'm very frustrated at not being able to block the adult sites on my son's phone. Is it even possible?

    As said, if you are able to configure OpenDNS on the network(s) your son's phone is connecting to, then yes, it is possible.
