was wonderful up until the 30 day deadline to return. It said invalid Sim card. Straighalk insisted on sending me a new one but before they could get it to me I watched a you tube video on how to fix it myself and it worked. Only other issue I have had is it calls different contacts in my list randomly. Sometimes I will not even be in the same room so I know I'm not doing it. Less

22 days after purchasing the phone it stop reading my micro Memory Card. I keep getting an error saying my sim card was invalid. So I called Straight Talk hoping to get it resolved. My memory card works fine in any other phone or device I put it in except the ZTE Lever. Needless to say it straight talk is totally useless and of no help. You cannot get any type of customer service through them to help you. The lady kept telling me I had an invalid memory card and need to purchase one that would work with the ZTE. I had a Gallaxy S3. It has been over 6 weeks and this issue is still unresolved. I'm not sure which is the biggest piece of crap the phone or the Straight Talk. The phone will not recognize that u have inserted memory card. If the memory card was invalid u would at least get a message stating that it was invalid. Less

when this phone was made they did not consider the size and therefore the SIMS card moves around.... Simple fix... small amount of tape does the trick!!
