Is there a way to completely disable in-game purchases in Android?
Don't want my teenager buying rubbish on his Samsung Galaxy Y!

The Daily Telegraph will tell you how to disable in-app purchases. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/mobile-phones/9800299/How-to-turn-off-in-app-purchases.html
Open the Google Play Store app and choose 'Menu' and then 'Settings'. Under 'User Controls' you'll find an option to 'Set or Change PIN'. Tap this and Android will ask you for a PIN. Type your chosen PIN, tap OK and then re-enter the PIN to confirm. Then tick the box next to 'Use PIN for purchases'.
Once you've done that, anyone who wants to make an in-app purchase on your device will need to know the PIN. That should keep your bills secure from little fingers.
