The Communications Ministry has passed a directive to the three cellular companies preventing minors from gaining access to erotic services through third generation cellular phones. Under the new law, all access to erotic services will be blocked automatically so that only subscribers over 18 can request that the block be removed. The new conditions go into effect on March 30, the ministry said. Third-generation technology, launched just over a year ago in Israel, enables subscribers the ability to surf the Internet and download content from the Internet onto a cellular phone.
