It is my understanding that it is a violation of Straight Talk's Terms of Service to use a Straight Talk device as a hotspot.

Not sure why yours isn't already doing that. Mine does automatically. Try contacting Straight Talk customer service by dialing 611 from your handset, or contact your local Wal-Mart's Electronics department.

Dear MarceyM,

There are several way to find this. There is no need to do or fix anything on the phone.... :-)

The easiest way to see a "Missed Call" or that you have "VM", a text and/or updates is to look in the upper left top corner of the Touch Screen. (there will be icons up there showing all of this)

2. Tap/Touch the "Top" Center of the touch screen and drag your finger downward. (this will pull open a "pull down screen") This screen shows all of your missed calls, VM's, new texts and any updates that are needed/wanted.

Check your wireless settings and make sure you have data enabled. Also if you are roaming you can talk and text but have no data coverage. Otherwise you may have an issue with your phone.

For this you need to have an Internet data pack connection from the service providers end and only then you can get connected to Internet anywhere you go.

No, if you want a phone that uses Verizon, get a phone that ends in a "C", not a "G". I just bought the new LG 505C for that reason.

Sadly the ZTE Merit will only allow you up to 512 mb of memory for applications to download. I have owned mine for 9 months and I am still frustrated at ST and myself for not looking more into the ZTE restrictions. It has 1gb of memory but you are locked out of it. I may have kept saving for a better phone.

You will not be able to download more than about 3 applications and you will always see the low memory indicator. So you have to pick the applications that you really want to have on your phone ie: your bank, weather, etc.

Keep your cache, clean, messages, clean, and that will help keep your memory free. I downloaded apps2sd to help with moving some apps to memory card which might allow you to have 1 more app. Good luck.

Don't think you can uninstall preloaded apps.
You can free up space by deleting your call log and old text messages. Any apps downloaded from the appstore can be moved to the SD card. Also, pictures can be moved to your SD card. If your SD card get's full you can purchase another with more space. I take a lot of pictures so I purchased the 32GB from walmart.com at a great price.
Hope this helps.

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.

How do you get some of the programs on your phone transferred over to your SD card so the phone can run more efficiently?

I have had this phone for over 6 months and I can do the basic functions with the phone. What I can not figure out is how to move some programs to free up the phone memory. Also I can not figure out how to play my music on the phone from my SD card.

You can move apps downloaded from the appstore to your SD card.
Try this...Settings>Applications>Manage Applications>Select the App>Select Move to SD card.
Hope this helps.
Applications preloaded on the phone cannot be moved to the SD card. I tried. If I'm incorrect someone please explain how.
