For an Android, its very good. If I play with it alot and go online a lot and watch videos and talk a lot, i might have to charge during the day...for average use, it lasts me all day.

I have to charge mine every other day but only have to use my phone for recreation, if you are working on files and such, I imagine the battery life will disappoint you.

Question

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.

Charging/USB ports have been pretty much standardized on Android devices.

You will need a microUSB cable.

No.

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

CMDA and GSM technologies are not compatible with each other.

You don't add minutes on Straight Talk. You have a $30 plan with limited minutes or the $45 plan with unlimited minutes. Either check the website at www.straighttalk.com or call customer service direct and hope you can understand them.
