No offense meant and this post will probably receive a lot of negatives only because I am going to say that it is going to be hard for any of us to say whether or not you are going to like the phone. Phone like/dislike is going to come from your personal experience.

I have the AT&T version of this(Avail z990) and I am extremely happy with my phone and all that it does.

if you have a windows phone or able to connect via USB cable, you can SYNC to outlook. Then Export the File as a CSV then import to Gmail.
Assuming your phone does not have an SD card, you most likely can not do this.

You might want to give the Phone make model before asking questions about how to use it?

What you can do however, is manually add the contacts to gmail, and login to gmail using the phone and allow it to sync. That is the simplest way.

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

answer 1
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.

GPS can sometimes take a few minutes to sync up. Just give it time. You can also try turning off GPS, and then re-enabling it.

Yes, easy to do.

The telephone # has to be an active one, don't tell your current provider you're switching.

Buy the new phone. Buy the $45 plan. Go to www.straighttalk.com to switch your number.

If you're telephone # is already inactive you will take a random telephone # based on the zip code you provide. This device has coverage with AT&T and TMobile.
