No.

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

CMDA and GSM technologies are not compatible with each other.

I have this problem occasionally too. It's frustrating, but I found out that if you just turn the phone off and then back on, it usually fixes it. The key word seems to be that "access forbidden" warning.

That error generally occurs when Straight Talk has blocked your service to the net.

You will probably need to call their Customer Service to get unlocked.

Straight Talk limits are rumored, though not confirmed, to be 100mb per day, 2GB per 30 day service card.

Straight Talk reserves the right to throttle/shut off your service for "abuse" of the network. Please remember that even though AT&T is the provider, Straight Talk is only renting space on the towers.

Low storage space and a lot of preloaded garbage aps that you can't get rid of seems to be a problem with most of the lower priced androids - ZTE included. Go in to "manage your aps" and you can move a lot of what you have to the SD card to open space. Past that, you'll need to look online for instructions on how to remove some of the preloaded stuff.

This is only a notification prompt when the phone gets below 20mb of free space.

Continue to do as you have with clearing ram and closing programs.

Also restart your phone.

When I had the AT&T version of this phone, I simply uninstalled the updates to Maps, Youtube, Voice Search, anything Google and it left with me with around 50mb of unused space. You could also try to move as many things to the SDcard as you can through an app called app2sd.

If you don't use the GPS, that could be used as a solution.

Hi May,

There is "No" difference. Its the same phone/meaning.

The "Z" is for ZTE and the "G" is for GSM(any phone that ends in "G" will have a SIM(Single Inline Memory) Card.

The two systems are GSM and CDMA(no SIM Card).

I tested this phone in 99 zip codes on a trip along the East Coast on a trip and it worked fine.

Have a good day.

Nothing. It is the exact same phone.

The Merit 990 GSM comes with a lunch on us offer. You will receive a $10 gift card to a number of restaurants.

Simply follow the directions for claiming the card from inside the packaging.

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.
