The service will also feature access to the best in family-friendly content such as Disney Video, Disney Music, and Disney ¡Ajá!, which is Disney’s Spanish language destination.

“Parents have been looking for a way to control and customize a mobile phone service for their kids, and the Zact phone featuring Disney content is a smart option for families who want huge savings on their monthly bill, along with the best in family-friendly entertainment. In addition, there is no need to buy an expensive plan since parents can choose any amount of voice, text, data starting as low as $3.49 per month,” said Greg Raleigh, founder and CEO of ItsOn, parent company of Zact.

At the core of the Zact Mobile service, families get the following:

Zact is the only smartphone for kids that give parents the control to manage their kid’s smartphone use. It promises to help parents remotely control when their child uses the phone, which apps they can use, and who they can contact. Parents can either use a Zact-enabled phone to control their kids phone, or they can download a free app called Zact Control from iTunes or Google Play which gives them a remote control to turn off their kids phone, manage their plan, or control access.

Zact was recently recognized as winner of The National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval’ in November 2013. According to a The National Parenting Center, “Zact gives parents a level of mobile control the likes of which none of our testers had ever seen or imagined was possible."
