not much.. I had issues with downloading apps and not being able to store them on the memory card.. it auto stored them to phone memory, and I could only have 6 or 7 apps on it at a time. The only reason I would not recommend this phone to anyone.

what is the difference between ZTE Merit 990 GSM and ZTE Merit Z990G?

Hi May,

There is "No" difference. Its the same phone/meaning.

The "Z" is for ZTE and the "G" is for GSM(any phone that ends in "G" will have a SIM(Single Inline Memory) Card.

The two systems are GSM and CDMA(no SIM Card).

I tested this phone in 99 zip codes on a trip along the East Coast on a trip and it worked fine.

Have a good day.

Nothing. It is the exact same phone.

The Merit 990 GSM comes with a lunch on us offer. You will receive a $10 gift card to a number of restaurants.

Simply follow the directions for claiming the card from inside the packaging.

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.

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.
