Just bought the Straight Talk ZTE Merit.
Friday 11th 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...

the best root method for zte merit z990g no pc needed.. tell your friends :)
Tuesday 01st of January 2013
I am not responsible for any problems that you may encounter with this method.Please understand this is at your own risk. i did not write any of the files i just hunted them down, was tired of my merit being plain jane. clockwork mod is a recovery program that has a few more options than factory recovery. This is a proven method of rooting the zte merit z990g from straighttalk with no pc. All from the handset. It is proven to work on many of these android phones.Below will be links to all files that you will need to dL for this task. I will also attach a deodexed stock merit rom.I recommend using this big time. Before doing anything enable usb debugging, and Unknown sources in development. settings/applications/developmentWhat you want to do is download the update.zip and store it to the root of the sdcard.this file location should read sdcard/update.zip. this will give you a nonroot version of cwm188.8.131.52. how to load up cwm you hold power, volume up, and menu button(3 slashes) until the factory recovery starts about 10-15 seconds. using the volume down go to the wipe/factory reset a

Hello everyone, I have very unsuccessfully attempted to root my ZTE Merit Z990G. It appears to be similar enough to the ZTE Avail Z990 that I would assume I could ask for help here. I have tried all of the following on Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10:SuperOneClick with Zergrush (gets stuck at Step 7), psneuter (stuck at Step 5), and Motofail (stuck at Step 5)z4rootUniversal Androot Manually pushing the files onto the phone via usb and Terminal (says it is a read-only file system)Tried to do the T-Flash card as posted on this forum (verification check fails)Tried the whole *983*7668# thing (gave me an error)I cannot seem to find any custom rom or anything for this phone. The details of the phone is:Model Number: ZTE-Z990GAndroid Version: 2.3.5Baseband Version: Z990B01Kernel Version: 184.108.40.206-perf+zte-kernel@Zdroid-SMTBuild Number: Z990GV1.0.0B05Hardware Version: p5pbIs there anything I can do to root this phone? Thank you much for your help.Sincerely,Patrick M.

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

And now I have successfully rooted my phone and and currently using stayboogy's blue steel 2.0.777.When the issue first began on the stock phone I search around trying to find a solution.I installed GoSms pro ... no diceThen I used the ST forums and eventually factory reset the phone, which temporarily corrected the problem. I reinstalled Gosms pro hoping that would prevent a future problem. The issue reoccurred around 2 days later.I then rooted the phone hoping that would solve the problem...no dice.Another factory reset and flashed stock merit rooted...no dice.I then flashed stayboogy's latest rom...no dice.Have cleared the messaging cache...no dice.Have installed History Eraser and History Eraser + and deleted all sms messages sent, received, draft and failed...no dice.EDIT: All APN info is correct. Also message service center number is correct.Any an
