If you are talking about the Huawei Ascend Y.....that was my first ST phone and in my personal opinion that phone was, well, junk! I could only add about a dozen or so contacts, could barely download more than 3-4 apps and could have no more than about 5 text messages before it would say that the memory was full and I had to clear pretty much everything out THEN restart the phone to get it to accept incoming messages.

I've had the Majesty almost 2 weeks now and I love mine! I have ALL of my FB friends imported into my contacts (606) plus about 3 dozen additional contacts. I have about 30 text messages on my phone (I'm not a huge texter), email is working GREAT (no having to retype my password for the email app yet) and I have about 2 dozen apps downloaded so far.

We are on the 2nd one for my husband though....the power button and screen on his started getting sluggish after just a couple of days of use.

This phone is way better than the Ascend. Faster processor, more memory and RAM, plus 4.1 Jelly Bean. Lets not forget the screen size will be a whole inch bigger.

The Ascend runs 2.3 Gingerbread, has a weak processor and very limited storage.

This phone also has a front facing camera, plus a LED Flash on the back camera.

Service transfer will be a piece of cake on the website.

Question

My daughter wants a phone that will do everything her ipod does. Does this phone compare to an ipod and it's free app availability?

She really wants a phone that she can use wifi when she doesn't have any prepaid data time left. She wants aps like texting, calling, game playing, music, etc. like what she can do on her I-pod with Wi-Fi. Will this phone work for her needs?

I started with an Ipod touch before I got this phone. I was surprised how many apps Google Play has for Android that iTunes has for the ipod. For me it seems very similar (multiple home screens with apps listed, availability seems close between google and itunes, and the phone settings and actions are pretty similar). You get up to 32gb of data which is not as much as the 64gb ipod. The screen is bigger which is a plus (at least for me) and you get this phone at a fraction of the cost of an idevice. I love my ipod but now that I have this phone I don't think I will be using it as much - the only downside that I have found is the access to itunes and my music on the ZTE vs. the ipod. Hope that helps!

Google Play store has many free text and calling apps just like apple that works over wifi. When your data expires wifi still works with these apps if you are connected to wifi that is.

You will not want the screen on during a call actually. The phone has a proximity sensor so you do not "ear dial/tap" with who you are calling, and thus the reason why the screen goes off when you put it near your ear.

Also leaving the display on will drain the battery faster as keeping that lit is a power hungry source.

No it would not actually. Because of data it is not possible.

I am sure they could come up with a way that you could, but that means adding to their monitoring tools so they can cut people off after the data allotment, minutes, etc. Also means adding unnecessary things to the phones which could cause them to slowdown. Remember that these phones are not top of the line. Most are on the low end of the spectrum or have seen their need come and go from the major carriers.

It is just simpler to use the Unlimited cards.

You first need to download a free flashlight app from the Google play store. There are many to choose from. Once you download the app, a flashlight icon will appear on your home screen.

Yes you can. Back them up to Gmail will be the easiest. Then sync the gmail account on the new phone and they will be added.
