Just bought the Straight Talk ZTE Merit.
Thursday 10th of May 2012
Just bought the Straight Talk ZTE Merit. I wanted it to speak the name of the person calling... but now it speaks EVERYTHING!!! Even reads my messages out loud! Is there any way to have it JUST speak the caller's name? Also, I had my email set up so that when I hit the icon it opens right up. Since my phone is 'sometimes' shared, I decided I'd rather have to put in my password XXXXX time. Can you help me figure this one out too? I am NOT savvy with these things. Please help in simple terms that even 'dummies' can follow... ?Also on the ZTE Merit, I want it to alert me when I receive texts and of course phone calls ONLY. Right now it alerts me with every email too! How do I get it to stop the email notifications, and also show me onscreen when I receive a text and when I miss a call???? SO much to learn about this phone!! Already Tried: Everything I know to try...
Random freezing and app crashing Straight Talk ZTE Merit Z990G.
Saturday 18th of August 2012
Hello,I am new here and this is my first post. I don't know anything about these smartphones so please excuse me if my terminology is incorrect in some aspects. I have recently purchased a Straight Talk ZTE Merit Z990G from Walmart. The problem I am having is it seams like it is constantly freezing up all the time. Like whenever I play games like words with friends, dice with friends, and other of the "with friends" games. However, I have had this happen with other games and apps as well. I'm wondering if this is simply just because there is multiple apps running at all times? I know these things don't have much memory at all. However, I don't understand how you close apps when your done with them. It also seams there are a lot of junk apps installed on the phone that are constantly running that I have no clue what they are. Could someone tell me if it is safe to remove these, and which ones can be safely removed? I would also like to get into rooting this phone but I have absolutely no clue about how to do so. A lot of the stuff is over my head. However, I do work on a lot

Straight Talk browser re-directed to odd 'home' page
Tuesday 11th of June 2013
My staright talk ZTE Merrit phone (their AT&T service version) keeps starting on an odd page "m.tracfone.com/sid" that keeps trying to convince me to enter in my phone number because "Please not your browser experience has been enhanced. Complete the following steps soto finalize the update." It shows the Tracfone, Net10, Safelink and telcel logos on the top of the page and has a field below to enter the cell number. First: My assumption is that this is totally bogus, but has anyone else seen this?Second: How the H3ck do I get RID of this annoyance short of resetting the phone to factory settings? (Not that I have really modified it that much.. but still)
Straight talk zte majesty
Tuesday 01st of October 2013
I was looking at the ZTE MAJESTY to by from Straight Talk, will this allow me to download adobe flash player to watch espn live? Is this an ATT provider or Verizon? If Verizon do I have to pay for the data plan seperate from the talk/text?
On Straight Talk, did you have to manually configure your APN settings for data?
Sunday 20th of October 2013
On a new AT&T Straight Talk account with a Nexus 4, are APN settings and data functioning by default when you inserted your micro-sim and activated, or did you have to to manually input APN settings to get data to work?

Do not buy ZTE Savvy z750c
Tuesday 18th of February 2014
The ZTE Savvy (z750c) is the WORST phone I have ever had. Period. I am so fed up with this phone that I'm making this post here. I was using a Samsung Galaxy Nexus (on verizon) before switching to Straight Talk 4 months ago. This phone is extremely underpowered and now the charging port is loose or something and I have to wiggle the cord to make sure it charges the phone. Stay away from this phone. I'm currently looking for a new phone, and this one is getting mounted to my target stand behind my house and getting a bullet put through it. It is complete junk. Stay away.

Switched from Straight Talk T-mobile sim to AT&T sim and now my Moto X doesn't work
Tuesday 17th of June 2014
I have been using Straight Talk since February 2014. I was using the AT&T sim in my Galaxy S2, and about 1 month ago I bought a new Moto X phone (unlocked). I put the Straight Talk T-mobile sim card in and that worked right away without any issues for about 1 month. A few days ago, I decided to switch back to AT&T, because I got better cell service at my house when I used AT&T with my Galaxy S2; however, after I went through the process to switch, my phone no longer works. I should clarify that it sometimes allows me to make/receive a phone call or pull up a webpage, but about 5 minutes later it stops working again and shows no reception or 4G. I have been on the phone with Straight Talk at least 7 times, and they just have me turn my phone on and off and reset the APN settings. Nothing works. I've even resorted to trying to use my husband's extra AT&T nano sim to see if that would work, and it is the same thing. This is the third sim card I have tried with no resolution (2 x AT&T and 1 T-mobile). Please help!!!!
