Question

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.

Question

Merit Z990 vs. dumbphone

I'm looking to get a Smartphone! I have no idea what to look for in terms of features but this one sounds like something that would be a good choice. I do not get Sprint coverage at home but do get AT&T (currently have their service). I want to text, check/update e-mail and surf the net. Is this a keyboard or large letters on the screen? THANKS for any help!

This phone uses AT&T actually so you are good to go there. The camera in this phone is 5mp. It does have a camcorder function. It also has no flash.

The only downside to this phone is the internal storage capacity. There is not much at all. There are programs that you cannot move to the sdcard. The bloatware is difficult to get rid of. You download a couple of apps and the phone is going to start nagging you that storage space is running low.

The keyboard is a virtual keyboard, not a slider phone. It is a nice size when in landscape mode. When in portrait, the letters can be a little hard to hit.

The Straight Talk Merit will only do EDGE and 3G for the net. You cannot get 4G or LTE on this. The band for that is missing.

Shop around and look at the all the Straight Talk devices. Read the question and answer section too. There is usually lots of good information about what service it uses.

Good luck in your search.

If it's already been sent, you need to delete the photos you've saved from your gallery that you don't want anymore, and then delete the text thread. It'll be gone then

No you can't.

The only way to upgrade is if Straight Talk offers an upgrade to the OS for this specific device.

There is software in the Play market you can download, but most times the phone must be rooted and the application must be granted superuser status. It takes about 20 minutes to root the Merit, but it can be done. If I can do it anyone can do it... lol

You're going to have to look online for one. If your battery is bad, all StraightTalk will do is send you a box to send your phone in, and send you a new phone when they get yours. Turn around time is between 7-10 days from my experience...
