Question

what is the difference between ZTE Merit 990 GSM and ZTE Merit Z990G?

answer 1
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.

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.

There is really no need to. It is an at&t tower phone. Straight talk charges less than att for the unlimited service, and you can keep your number if you transfer to it.
