A new service provider called Zact today announced its unique plan offerings. The company offers a large range of sizes for voice, text messaging, and data buckets that can be mixed and matched in any way. Any custom plan can be shared among any number of devices for $5 per device. Plans can be managed and changed at any time via an app on the Android phone. The company uses the Sprint 4G LTE network and offers two phones: the LG Viper for $399 and LG Optimus Elite for $199. A "Never Overpay Guarantee" automatically bills you only for the cheapest plan that fits your usage, even if you picked a more expensive plan for that month. Example rates include $24.22 for 1 GB of data, $64.31 for 3 GB of data, $5.28 for 1,000 text messages, and $9.43 for 500 voice minutes. The company also offers app-specific unlimited data, such as $5/month for Facebook, $1/month for Candy Crush Saga, or $5/month for maps and navigation. The company also offers parental controls that work directly via the Zact app. Parents can set limits and curfews, and even approve contacts. Phones will start shipping in June.

LOL

Not bad I like all these MVNO's that are coming out using Sprints network. The Elite is 3G only the Victory is a nice 4G LTE capable phone. Very good plan options.
Wait...haven't you heard that Sprint's network is bad where Mr. Anonymous Internet Poster lives? I mean, why even bother?

Everything sounded pretty good up until the last sentence actually. Rolling Eyes

Is it sad that I knew it was Sprint before I even read the article? Sprint, the MVNO-whore.

$24.22 for 1 GB of data, $64.31 for 3 GB of data, $5.28 for 1,000 text messages...?

Those are oddly specific numbers.
Yep its a MVNO so you pay for your service in advance including all kinds of taxes and surcharges already included in the cost quoted.
