You can select different memory locations to store messages like sim,phone,etc… go to message settings and toggle all the different available memories and try if you find the message in any of those memory location..

This might be the issue with the network from service provider end so, have a check with them or try to reset your phone once and then try checking.

You will be able to access your account on Straight Talks web site from this phone. I have done this but I had to use the WiFi at MickyDs because my service had lapsed. I think Straight Talk also has a way to call it in but I have never tried it and you may still need service for that. They also have an Auto Pay option. There is no dedicated link on the phone to enter a new service number.

Yes, just dial 611. You can either use a credit cart to refill your service or buy a straight talk card at wal mart and give that number over your phone. Super easy.

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.
