It comes with a 2gb sd card but if you're planning on downloading a lot of things I'd recommend buying something a little larger like a 4gb or 8gb.

answer 2
Yes paula u will need to have a memory card to operate to use the phone to take pictures, play music or download any app's, because the phone only has a internal memory of 512MB which will be used for the inbuilt applications on the phone. You can expand the memory upto 32GB though.

The ZTE sometimes does what it feels like. When you receive a call try turning the volume up at the same time. This worked for me. It might work for you as well.. Good luck.

If you are through Straight Talk, they will send you text notifications a few days prior (even up to a week before) your service month ends. The website is also helpful with this: straighttalk.com.

Hope this helps. I have never had to look up my end date. I go off of the text messages.

On most when you turn the phone off and then back on it will tell you when your service is due, if you are on an automatic plan you go to settings: about phone : And you will see Status: click on it and it will tell you what network and if you have service. This is the information that customer service gave me????? Other than that I couldn't understand them so I went to autopay... After being cutoff twice. Hope this helps anyone...

NO, it can not. This is an excellent phone if you use a memory card and do not plan to download more than 3 apps. Some apps will work on your memory card, like Words With Friends. So far that is the only one I've come across. My other two apps are Facebook and Weatherbug. I can not have any more apps on my phone other than that. Huge shame, great phone just awful internal memory.

I do not believe so but I am not an expert either. Trying getting a 36 GB memory card from radio shack or walmart. That will help.

Yes, but it doesn't come with the TalkBack software pre-installed. You would have to download it from the Google Play store, it is a free application.

Dear Anonymous,

No, you can not make your internal processor bigger.

On this phone it is 600MHz

Any chance by mistake that you are talking about memory.....
yes you can. With a bigger/larger Gb MicroSC card. This phone will accommodate up to 32Gb.
