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

Pair the phones using a Bluetooth connection then you can send your contacts that way. It may also be possible to send other files. I have sent contacts and pictures from older flip phones to the latest androids this way.

Unless you have a card in your old phone with your contacts on it I don't believe there is any way other than entering them one at a time. If you are on facebook this phone will automaticly enter every one of your facebook friends contact information in your phone. It just does it automaticly.

Facetime will not work with this.

answer 2
Unfortunately, Facetime currently does not offer an Android version and is intended only for Apple products. I believe there are several "hacks" out there but most will require a front camera. This phone has only a rear camera.

There are Android applications that function like Facetime such as Skype, Google Hangouts, Viber, etc.

However, again, this phone has no front camera. It also operates at 3G speeds for mobile internet so isn't ideal for video calling applications unless using wi-fi that has higher speeds.
