I participated in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Zact. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating
My kids desperately want a cell phone for Christmas. I have been extremely against that type of a gift because 1) I don’t want my minutes impacted 2) my plan is expensive 3) I don’t want them to be exposed to some of the societal pressures of kids with cell phones.
While I want them to be able to contact me when not at home, I do have concerns about their mobile usage and the risks associated with smartphones. I recently learned about Zact, a no contract nationwide mobile service, that has parental controls where I can easily set amount of text and data usage as well as set curfews, such as at meal and bed times. Zact was recently awarded the seal of approval from The National Parenting Center and their average monthly bill is only $22! Are your kids asking for a smartphone this holiday season? If so, check out Zact Mobile and learn how their features help provide parents peace of mind!

Zact does not involve a contract. Sometimes I feel like I am signing my life away with those 2 year contracts. With Zact you only pay for what you use. If you don’t use all of your service you get money back towards next month’s bill. The average Zact bill is $22 per month.
With two kids the plan is shareable! They can share the same pool of talk, text and data with each other without having to pay additional hefty line fees.
My favorite feature is the parental controls. I can set allowances on the amount of talk, text and data. I can even set curfews, set allowed or blocked contacts, and control which apps they have access to.
Zact was recently awarded the seal of approval from The National Parenting Center and USA Today cites “New cellphone carrier Zact provides the most robust controls.” See the article here – http://usat.ly/1bW6X7Y
