New prepaid provider Zact launches flexible plans based on pay what you use
The latest wireless provider that entered US prepaid market is the Zact, “industry’s first smart mobile service provider”. If you want to pay for what you actually use as you use it, than you should really consider one of Zact plans.
Zact gives you an option to choose from variety of plans for voice, text messaging, and data, and that can be adjusted right from your device at any time through Zact app. Thanks to their “Never Overpay Guarantee”, you won’t be charged if you don’t use all of your voice, text or data from the plan that you purchased. Instead, you will be credited back to plan that is closest to your actual usage.
Furthermore, you can access specialized plans for your specific needs. For example, if you are a Facebook user, for $5 per month, you will have unlimited access to Facebook, without purchasing data plan. Or if you need access to maps and navigation only, you can purchase it also for $5.
All Zact plans are fully sharable between Zact enabled devices (maintenance fee is $4.99 per device). You also have an option of parental control that can be set directly through Zact app. Control features include the ability to set curfew, block access to browsers, restrict apps and contacts.
On the other side, at the moment, Zact offers only two relatively low-end mobile devices. One is LG Viper that runs on Android 4.0 and it can be purchased for $399 and the other is the LG Optimus Elite that runs on Gingerbread and it is available for $199. Zact takes pre-orders now, and shipping will start in June.
According to Zact, more handsets including high-end ones will be added soon. However, only Android phones are compatible with the special software – Zact app – so therefore only Androids can be expected.
The Zact will run on the Sprint’s 4G LTE network and will be offering off network roaming.
“Our goal is to give mobile consumers freedom, flexibility and control of their wireless service right from their device. With Zact, no contract is just the beginning – you can create your own unique plan and share it with anyone. You get exactly what you want, and you never have to pay more than you need due to our Never Overpay Guarantee. It’s the ultimate unplan.” – said Greg Raleigh, CEO and founder of ItsOn, Zact’s parent company.
