Zact Review

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

This could be the most important read that will save you a ton of money on your cell phone service…….I am very excited to introduce you to Zact Mobile!

Zact is so unique from any other provider in that it allows you to build and customize your own plan. Instead of being forced into a long term contract, it enables the customer to choose the right mix of talk, text and data and there is never a contract that you are locked into!

My husband and I had been with the same mobile provider for 10+ years. Mark was very skeptical about trying Zact but he is now probably their biggest fan and tells everyone who will listen about how it works and how much money in our monthly budget is being saved. In fact, after trying Zact for 30 days we made the decision to switch our cell phone service to Zact permanently!

How does it work? In a few simple steps, we were able to get our phone service set up by first selecting from the talk minutes, text messages and data MB/GB options. At first we weren’t sure how many of each talk, text or data we had been using so we looked at a few old cell phone bills and then followed the guidance provided at the Zact website. As a bonus, we don’t have to worry about selecting too many minutes from any category because Zact offers a “Never Overpay Guarantee” and will credit your next monthly bill with any overage! Conversely when we originally set up the plan we did not choose enough data so the phone actually alerted us and asked us if we would like to move into the new plan which we did with no penalty.

Next, we chose our mobile device with options including the Samsung Galaxy S® III, Samsung Victory, LG Viper 4G LTE and the LG Optimus Elite. We chose the LG Viper 4G LTE ($199 on sale from $399) and have been very satisfied with our new Smart cell phone. It has all of the necessary functions and provides a bright display, clear sound and fast speeds.

Finally, we had service activated and we never looked back. My husband was very concerned about being able to keep his cell phone number which he has had for 15+ years and this was no problem at Zact by following the easy to follow instructions.

If you have children who also use a cell phone there is also the option to set curfews, usage caps and app/contact list restrictions directly from the phone.

Customer service has been attentive and answered any of my questions throughout this process. I love that there is no contract and after crunching the numbers we realized that we would be saving a whopping $66 per month for the exact same talk, text and data minutes! I love that Zact does not have any contracts which is a big bonus with this provider. When we decided to switch over we learned that our contract with our former provider was not up until November 2013. We looked at the numbers one more time and realized even after paying the “contract out” fee of $138 we would STILL save over $126 between August and November 2013 by switching to Zact and then an additional $66 per month after that! Are you wondering how much you could save? Check out the “Savings Calculator” which will show you the potential savings instantly.

Zact has provided us with excellent coverage as the service provider and it uses the Sprint Nationwide Network with 4G/LTE. My husband loves that we can use our phone’s data connection to connect to our Internet or WiFi enabled device for no extra charge. We love receiving and reviewing our phone statement each month directly on the device and it showed that we had actually been given a credit which was applied to our bill for minutes that went unused….how awesome is that?!
