Design your own mobile plan: Zact

Boot Camp feature for Monday, May 27, 2013

A design your own plan no-contract mobile carrier.   Zact.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     A company called ItsOn has launched a new mobile service called Zact.  How is it different?    Chief Marketing Officer Anna Fieler…

“I can create a plan that has, for example, a hundred minutes of talk, a thousand texts, 500 megabytes and if I don’t have enough, Zact will send me a little alert to let me know I need more.  And all of this is happening on the device.  So with two taps, I can upgrade to a plan that’s exactly right for me.  And if I actually bought too much, Zact would automatically apply a credit to adjust me to the plan that would have been exactly right for me.”

The one downside…only two phones are available at the outset.   The LG Viper at 400 dollars and the LG Elite at 200.     There’s more info at at Zact.com.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
