Yep, there are many cases available for this device already.

You can search Straight Talk Merit or the AT&T Avail as it is the exact same phone as this.

Question

Problems using the headset feature

It appears that the headset must be plugged into the phone before you answer a call. If you plug the headset in while talking the other person can't hear me but I can still hear them. Tried two different headsets and they both acted the same. Is there something I'm not doing correctly?

The 3.5mm headphone jack on this phone is audio output only from what I have heard. That is probably why when you plug in the headphone that you can hear them but they can't hear you.

You could always use a bluetooth headset though.

More than likely no. This device may use AT&T for service but the phone is locked and Straight Talk will not unlock it to use your own sim.

Are you sure your contacts were saved to your sim card? They could also have been saved to your phone memory.

Can you back them up to gmail or sdcard?

This device will not work with another carrier's sim card in the phone.

You can yes. Porting a number over should not pose a problem at all. Contacts you can backup to gmail, sdcard and transfer them to this phone.

To transfer your number from another carrier, please call them to get your account number and pin. Also make sure your number is an active number. Straight Talk cannot port an inactive number.

When activating this phone, under activation on the Straight Talk website, choose "transfer number from another carrier." You will then input the required information. After all steps in the activation process are complete, you will usually have a fully working phone within 2 hours.

Question

what is the difference between 600mhz to a 1GHz.on a cell phone.which is the best one??

Hi Shorty1965,

To explain this easily.....

GHz and MHz stands for Gigahertz and Megahertz respectively. These two units are used to measure frequency. Gigahertz and megahertz are used in different situations(such as wireless communication), to measure frequency in different scales. Frequency is a very important factor of a wave or a vibration.

MHz is 1000 times lower than the GHz.

So in short...the chip of choice would be "1GHz"

Have a good day.

No you cannot and if anyone tells you different, they are lying to your face.

Straight Talk terms of service strictly forbids tethering/hotspot use of their devices.

By doing so, you risk having your account turned off with no warning.

Question

Does this ccell phone come with the SIM card or I need to buy the SIM card?

It is for the Straight Talk ZTE Merit Z990G Prepaid Cell Phone.and what does prepaid mean?

This phone comes with a sim card. This will operate on the AT&T Network.

Prepaid simply means that you pay for service in advance. What is great about this is that there is no contracts. So say you pay $45 for one month, do it again the next, but can't afford the $45 for the next(3rd) month. Your phone cannot make or receive calls, texts. Only the emergency funtion will work.

Straight Talk will "hold" your number for 90 days. So next month comes you pay the $45 again and you still have your number. After 90 days without a service agreement, Straight Talk will put your number back into their available numbers.

I used the $45 Unlimited Everything for this example as that is one of two plans that this phone will use. The other is the $60 International Unlimited which allows you to call internationally but not to use the phone internationally.

Yes you can. Just be wary that using a live wallpaper will cause battery drain quicker than if you have a regular wallpaper.

There are battery apps that help you manage your battery as well on Google Play.

No you don't.

But please do not try to tether or use this device as a hotspot. It is against Straight Talk's terms of service.
