    ZTE Merit--Great Phone for the Price

    I researched this phone before I bought it, I also went and entered 93 zip codes from SC, NC NY and NJ and all but 3 said that this phone worked in those areas. So I bought the phone, then went on a trip from Myrtle Beach, 'SC to New Jersey and I never lost coverage or data use. So far it has been a great phone. I was worried about memory, but I simple went and bought a high MB MicroSD card(problem solved#. Took photos while on my trip and they came out great. #FYI: You do not need a high pixel camera (on phone or regular camer#, unless you plan on blowing them up for a poster or are on a crime photography team. Just an FYI) Browsing has been fine. No problem there. Downloading apps thru Google Play Android Markert. No problem there. Since this is a GSM ATT phone I foresee and have had no problems. So if you are wanting a good Android for a good price and one that works very well on the East Coast #that I know for a fact) I highly recommend it.

    I just purchased this Android (ZTE Merit) from my local Wal-Mart for my wife. I was a little skeptical from hearing about the short battery life and the fact it runs on AT&T and not Verizon. My wife has downloaded everything onto this phone, been surfing the web, playing games, etc. and without charging it for over 24 hrs. and the battery life was around the half way mark. It never has froze up, never had any problems with downloading programs, no dropped calls and the battery lasts just as long as any other phone. We have been with Straight Talk for going on 2 years and the service has always exceeded our expectations. Great phone, Great Price, and Great Service. I highly recommend the ZTE Merit. P.S. As far as the battery life follow the instructions on how to save your battery which comes with the phone, that is what we did and we have had no problem with the battery draining to fast.

    I love this phone. I moved and had very low signal on my Optimus Q because it uses Sprint towers. I read the reviews on this phone and they said the Merit used AT&T towers. I went to my local Walmart and it wasn't there. I went here and it wasn't online either so I ordered directly from StraightTalk. The phone came quickly with free FedEx Overnight Delivery. Easy to set up online on my account and they had it registered and working within a few hours. The only bad part is that the lower left part of my screen broke in my pocket. I contacted StraightTalk and they said they will send me a replacement phone, so now I will be waiting on that. StraightTalk has had excellent customer service the few times I've used them. I mainly use their online customer service because their call center is in another country and I have hearing problems as it is, and trying to get through an accent is difficult. Text knows no accent... lol It's a great Android phone, you won't be sorry buying it, just make sure you find a hard cell phone case. mine was in the mail on it's way to me when the screen broke. Day late, dollar short...

    • A. Unlocked, with SIM Card, you should be able to, you will have to upate the APN info, look in the app store for APN Update ( Tweakker APN INTERNET MMS works great ) this will set the connection correctly.

    • A. Yes, you can use your phone, and you will get 4G. The previous person said you would not. If you go to straighttalksim.com you will find this answer. But only if it is a real tmobile phone that had 4G to start with. att phones will work, but no 4G. Most people, probably 99% do not know that tmobile phones have a extra band(1700mhz) that att does not have, thats where they get the 4G from. Let me know how it works, I have a tmobile I am thinking about switching.

    • A. Yes, you can with Straight Talk's Bring Your Own Phone program. All you will need to do is buy the proper sim card(unlocked or T Mobile). You will not get 4G though through Straight Talk. You will be limited to 3G for your net services. More information can be found at http://www.straighttalksim.com

    • A. Yo hsve to contact straighttalk to get a straighttalk compatible sim card. I suggest going to their site so you can get one specifically for your phone. They also have simcards for other carriers too. Also I believe that is a smartphone and any that need a data link will only work with the $45.
