    ZTE Merit--Great Phone for the Price

    Customer review by Sweetpeacm06

    5.0 stars by Sweetpeacm06

    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.

    Customer review by SKG6

    then this is the phone for you. This is by far the best phone that I have owned so far. I find it to be the best budget friendly phone for the price. You just can't beat it. You get all the things you are looking for in an Android phone but without spending close to $200.00 or more. Mine is running off from AT&T, great signal. Call clarity is great. Text messaging sending/receiving has great response time. The web features are awesome for this phone. There are many features pre-installed on this phone. For example, GPS, facebook, google search which has speech to text option available, and many more. You will also find many "free" apps to choose from from the Google Play app. store. (I would suggest downloading the Dolphin browser to use instead of the pre-installed web browser. It seems to work a little faster.) This phone has a 5mp camera and camcorder function. They both work nicely in a well lit room but not so great in a dark setting. Having a flash would have been nice but still I'm satisfied. The battery life on this phone in my opinion is "excellent". I don't make that statement lightly. I have used this phone for long periods of time in a day and the battery life barely decreased. At the end of the day I still had 35% battery life. This phone also comes with a charging cord that can plug into a computer USB port or a wall outlet. If your thinking of purchasing this phone, I say go for it. I don't think you will be disappointed. In fact, I believe you will be happily surprised how feature rich this phone is. This is the first device that I have rated a full 5 stars and was happy to do so.

    • if you have an unlocked phone that uses a SIM card, you should be able to buy a SIM card from straight talk, it should work.

    • 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.

    • Yes, you can use your phone, and you will get 4G. The previous person said you would not. If you go to 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.

    • 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

    • 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.
