When I was growing up if you would have told me that some day I would not have a landline phone, I wouldn’t have believed you. Even though I was an extremely early-adopter of cell phone technology – I’ve had a cellphone for nearly 20 years – I never thought they would replace landlines. And yet as cellular service has improved in quality and portability, I and many others have switched to using them exclusively.
While there are definite benefits to cutting the line and going cell-only, cost is not one of them. Especially with the addition of texting and data plans, the monthly cost for cell phones can be a significant portion of your budget. I’m always on the lookout for ways to keep that bill from getting out of control and recently I heard about a new one called Zact.
Zact works off the Sprint cellular and data networks, providing nationwide coverage for voice, texting, and data plans. You get to chose those plans à la carte, allowing you to get exactly what type of coverage you need. Here’s the really cool part for me: if you don’t happen to use all the services you’ve paid for, they will credit it back for you toward the next month’s bill. You can find out more about how Zact works by watching this video.
Because of their special credit-back perk, the average Zact plan costs only $22 per month. If you have a need for multiple phones, you can share the same texts, minutes, and data without paying hefty line fees. And you don’t have to worry about your kiddos using up all your text messages; you can set talk, text and data limits. You can even set curfews, set allowed or blocked contacts, and control which apps your child has access to.
Up until now you could only purchase Zact online. But now it’s available exclusively at Best Buy Mobile specialty stores. I love our local Best Buy Mobile store; it’s where I picked up a set of headphones a few months ago.
