My husband and I have only ever used smart phones; we’ve never had a landline. This system definitely has its perks: complete mobility, a phone integrated with all of our schedules, contacts, and data, and of course, millions of cool apps. However, between us, we do have a substantial bill each month, and our plan isn’t very customizable. This definitely leaves a lot of room for improvement among mobile phone carriers.

Now there’s a new option from Best Buy that fills that void! Zact, a mobile phone service that works off of the Sprint cellular and data network, overs nationwide coverage without contracts. It’s completely customizable: You get to pick your voice, texting, and data plans, à la carte. Best Buy Mobile Specialty Stores are the exclusive US retailer for the Zact mobile service. Before, Zact was only available online. Now, Zact has partnered with Best Buy Mobile Specialty Stores, and is offered exclusively through local stores. This way, you get to go to an actual store, and see the phones in person. You can also have all of your questions answered by helpful staff. The specialists can help guide you as you decide which device and service plan is best for you.














Zact is a no-contract smart mobile service with nationwide coverage, that allows you to customize your plan and save money – all from your device! Unlike contract plans, where you often pay for more than you actually use, Zact lets you only pay for the service that you use. You get money back the next month for service you didn’t end up using. The average bill with Zact is $22.00 per month. That sounds affordable to me! Any plan on Zact is shareable. You can share the same pool of talk, text, and data with your family, without big line fees. This makes it great for families with children who all share one mobile plan. Moms will also love the parental control options. You can set allowances on the amounts of talk, text, and data on kids’ phones, as well as set curfews, set allowed and blocked contacts, and control what app they can access. That’s a lot of peace of mind!

They’ll even setup and activate your new phone, and transfer your contacts and data. All of this is part of their complimentary Walk Out Working program.

    My 17 year old needs a new phone, I will have to check this out for her! There are so many phone and plan options it can be confusing to pick the cheapest one

  2. $22 a month? My mind is blown! I’m going to check this out.

  3. I think this is such a great way to save money on mobile bills!

  4. You had me at $22. We use Virgin Mobile here and are on the $35 and $45 plans and I thought that was good but this is crazy cheap.

    wow! great price! Wonder if it is available in my area…

  6. Angela says:

    I love the idea of only paying for what I use — I rarely come close to using all the minutes on my current plan. At least 100-200 are wasted every month!
