For iPhone/iPad/iOs
Check out their quite easy and powerful content restrictions.
Suggestion: Have someone else have the password (or half and half with a spouse) and do the following:
Lock installing apps + remove browser + add apps you need (possible rules: no games, no sports, no entertainment, etc.).
[Occasionally an app will have a built in browser/or need to access a certain website - just go back in to settings (with password) and add that website].
There is time restrictions and more features too.
(May not be enough for teenagers - consult your own advisers - this solution sure beats doing nothing and there is no excuse)

Pricing info may not be accurate and is only on full filters (not email only), feel free to correct, and does not include installation costs. I am working on a comprehensive comparison list

I have an interesting phenomenon, where OpenDns works in my PC but won't filter any devices connected via WiFi

The devices might have manually set DNS servers.

OpenDNS didn't work on my PC at all.  I think I set it up correctly.

How do you set a mobile phone to the right DNS servers?

Check if your IP address is still the same. I've had it change on me once and it automatically disabled the filter.

Put in the OpenDNS server addresses, 208.67. 222.222 and 208.67. 220.220, as your DNS server settings on your router

Open DNS makes an app which will update your IP with them automatically once it is installed on one computer on your network.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

what's a good free filter for a phone ?
The only option is on Iphones you could have restrictions on and Tag has your password

Is there any filter that can filter based on trade? For example; I'm an electrician, is there a filter that will allow stuff that affiliated with electricians and block all the other trash?
Categories are how any base works you block everything except what you need
