I participated in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Zact. I received a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.
UPDATE: This company is no longer in business, please visit our other mobile phone reviews.
While my ten-year-old does have an iPod, he has been asking for his own cell phone lately. Seeing as how my older son (who is 14 and has a cell phone) has put us on a data usage freeze for several days before our billing cycle close date because he uses most of our data, I don’t want to think of what adding him to the plan will do!
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 meal and bedtimes. Zact was recently awarded the seal of approval from The National Parenting Center and their average monthly bill is only $22! So, if your kids are asking for a smartphone this holiday season like mine is, you might want to look at Zact Mobile and learn how their features help provide parents peace of mind!
