Rated 5 out of 5★ by I like my new phone but can't figure out how to put the music on on my sd card to phone numbersand put the pictures I take on the phone numbers of my family and friends . 01/21/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by unuseful phone this phone does nothing b ut shut down all day weather ur on the internet texting or making a call. have factory reset it and everything and it doesnt fix it 03/18/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Love it!!!! This is a good phone for kids,it is easy to use 04/05/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Was okay at first... I actually managed to have this phone for almost a year before it started to go bad. It doesn't hold a charge anymore AT ALL! It won't let me receive text messages, saying the memory is full, when it isn't. Also I've been having a problem with the phone saying that it's low on free disk space when I have deleted all of my apps, except the ones that can't be deleted. It'd also be nice if it didn't come with a ton of unnecessary apps that can't be deleted (Twitter, Orkut, etc.) 04/15/2013
Rated 2 out of 5★ by Disappointing When it works, it's great. Trouble is it doesn't work reliably. The application browser crashes OFTEN. Downloading apps is difficult because of the very limited memory on the phone itself. Buying a larger memory card doesn't help because downloads have to go to the phone's memory first and then be transferred to the card. The phone comes pre-loaded with tons of junk I don't want but can't get rid of to free up memory. Not sure I'll be keeping this one long. 04/11/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Has never failed to work Had my ZTE Z990G phone for 2 years now. It was my first smart phone and still the only one I have. Takes great photos/videos and sends them easily. Verbal test messages work great too.Does not voice dial but I can live with that. Small enough to fit in my pants front pocket but large enough to finger text easily. ATT sales people just smile and say, "There is not way we can compete with the price of Straight Talk". Plenty of storage for phone numbers, music, etc... Best part is I'm not locked in to any contract and unless Straight Talk goes crazy with their charges I will never switch. A few days before they auto draft my bank they text me with the charges which has always been $45.00 but with taxes and fees totals $49.24 for unlimited everything!! Great phone and great plan. 12/21/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Problem Phone - Don't Purchase We had this phone for 2 months and it froze up. Straight talk was polite to take our phone for a week and send a new one. It has been 2 weeks since we received the new phone and now it is also having issues. The customer service person will not give us a refund and let us choose another phone, but did tell me ZTE is having major issues with keypad on this phone. Please save yourself the agrivation and go with another phone. Straight Talk will not help more than keep having you ship your phone back. After 1 year, we are stuck with a bad phone. 11/25/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Nice upgrade!!! I got this phone which at first was worried but once I received it so simple to understand,it supports all apps including facebook.The texting part is fine & the battery life lasts for a long time.The camera feature is nice & clear.This phone is perfect since it is my only means of a landline.Is great because it runs on ATT towers. 02/22/2013
