I believe you add the number to your contacts, then it offers the option of blocking. I may be wrong on this, it's been over a year since I last used my merit.. the piece of junk is in the closet.

Phone has a touch sensor on the screen when you put the phone to your face the light will turn off on the screen but when you pull it away from your face it turns back on, many smart phones have this feature.

answer 2
There is proximity sensor on the front of the phone. top left, looks almost like two small cameras built in. when you put your phone up to your head during a call it turns the screen off. when you pull it away after a few moments it turns it back on. this saves a little power and also keeps your ear from hitting the end button and hanging up on the person. usually you wont notice this happening but I thought the same thing when I first started using mine.

Question

Why does my ZTE Merit power it's self down?

My ZTE Straight Talk powers it's self down 3-4 times a week promptly at 11 pm. Then it powers up again. Then it plays the TracFone power up tone that cannot be silenced or turned down. Wakes the house up! Can I fix this in any way?

Try doing a hard reset on the phone, take the battery out while the phone is still on, hold the power button for 30 seconds no less than 25-30 seconds and then replace battery and turn back on, should fix the problem
