No.

This is a GSM AT&T phone. Verizon is mostly CDMA still.

CMDA and GSM technologies are not compatible with each other.

Yes, we had an AT & T landline and had the Walmart Associate start the process to port the landline AT& T number to the cell. Everything went smoothly!

answer 2
Yes you can.

You will need to contact AT&T to get your account number and pin.

Then use "transfer number from another company" on the website when you activate this phone. Input those numbers during activation.This device will then become active with your current number. Your AT&T phone will pretty much cease to work once you go through the activation and porting processes.

99% of the time, you will have a full functioning phone within an hour or two.

GPS can sometimes take a few minutes to sync up. Just give it time. You can also try turning off GPS, and then re-enabling it.

What kind of case is recommended for this phone

I have already seen an answered question about cases for this phone, but it was not specific enough for me. I would like to know specific brands of cases that will fit this phone so that I can shop for one without wondering if it's going to fit. Will and Ipod case work?

I was not able to purchase a case through Walmart. Instead, I went to Amazon.com. They have several options to choose from. I bought a silicone gel case, screen protector and car charger. Check it out.

Dear Babyboo3980,

You do not need a specfic "brand" to have a case for this phone.

Any Brand will work, as long as it is "specific" to the ZTE Merit or the ZTE Avail.

No offense meant and this post will probably receive a lot of negatives only because I am going to say that it is going to be hard for any of us to say whether or not you are going to like the phone. Phone like/dislike is going to come from your personal experience.

I have the AT&T version of this(Avail z990) and I am extremely happy with my phone and all that it does.
