Questions & Answers for Straight Talk Straight Talk ZTE Merit Z990G Prepaid Cell Phone

Question

ZTE Merit lists $50/30day card. Internet shows it should be $45/30 day card & at&t.

Everywhere on the internet, this phone is listed this as Walmart's first straight Talk android phone that uses AT&T. It states the phone is $129.00 and can only be used with the $45/30 day plan or the $65/30 day international plan. I wanted to purchase this phone but not if it is not through AT&T and is $5.00 more per card.

After taxes the card comes close to $50, but yes, it works on AT&T towers. My wife goes through AT&T and I had the Optimus Q that goes through Sprint. We have the same amount of signal strength everywhere we go. I pay less but she gets 4G speeds, so it's a trade off.

Yes, the texting thru the Green Box Icon labeled Messaging is threaded.

You can deleted text by text....or wait a few and when the thread closes and stops you can delete the whole thread altogether.

On the stock messaging app, there is no threaded texting(IM conversation lookalike).

You will need to download a texting app that has that as an option in the program features.

Charging/USB ports have been pretty much standardized on Android devices.

You will need a microUSB cable.
