Reviews (1/10 Avg. rating)


Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.

Big mistake

Screen cracks to easily, the charge input breaks and the screen goes out. Never should've released this piece of crap. Not a good phone at all. Even a phone at Walmart would be better than this phone! I would say dont buy.

What a mistake!!! DON'T BUY!!!

I think ZTE should have tested alot more before releasing this piece of junk in the market. Alot of the "features" work one time and not the next, no caller ID on bluetooth, it won't even send your ringtone to your bluetooth. VERY VERY BAD, a $30.00 phone would be more usefull than an Engage.

This is a useless comment about this phone....... Almost every single phone has a couple features missing that's what build competition between handsets. The music not playing through the Bluetooth is almost 90 percent of the time , a feature of the Bluetooth. Can you hear music through the Bluetooth when you use muve music? If not then it only supports voice. Also , no caller ID is due to the way your contacts are saved........ Numbers not saved with a picture or with an ID name too long wont show up . If these are the only things you have to worry about with a new smartphone ..... feel blessed. Every phone including the 699 smartphones / iphones have flaws much bigger than this. For 249.99 you cant expect a galaxy s 3........ I use one everyday and have several friends who have it . Common android problems such as battery and apps force closing are not the phones issue, as someone who troubleshoots androids everyday...... 98 percent of the problems people have with their handset is "user error".
