Can I temporarily disable filtering?

    Of course you can temporarily disable OpenDNS  filtering settings you have chosen which are presenting an issue in this case. Simply  flush your browser and local resolver caches afterward.  When you are done with whatever is needed,  select again your filtering level or custom categories, and flush caches again.

    Or, you can just change the DNS settings on this phone, since it is being sold, and it is the only device for which you want OpenDNS turned off, yes?

    ----------------------------------------

    --Now my question is, why should one need access to cloud services to wipe the physical phone (as opposed to a user's remote accounts). That is super-odd to me.  Any smartphone/Apple power users who can answer my not-related-to-OpenDNS question? :D

    It's possible that the user is using the iCloud remote wipe feature: http://support.apple.com/kb/ph2701.

    Thanks!  That is a nice feature, too.  I would hope the same could be accomplished without any connectivity if needed.

    It looks like when you select "none" under Settings>Filtering> Filtering level it works. But if you then want to go back to your "Custom" settings, those settings are gone. Is there an easy way to maintain custom settings, even if they are currently disabled?

    Unfortunately, there's no "pre-set" or "saved" option to keep a configuration and re-use it. You have to make each change individually, and it can't be saved for later use.

    Nope.  Related ideas have been clearly marked as "Not Planned".
