Miranda Galloway: Okay...so...Restarting seems to be the main issue everyone has...yes? Mine
does it much less often now and only if I'm pushing the RAM too hard. Usual
fix IF it happens with any PARTICULAR APP (not from merely heavy use) is to
go under manage apps. find the app, clear data, force stop, uninstall (or
uninstall updates), restart the phone and reinstall (update). It seems like
any issues on mine happened within short time from an install or applying
an update to certain apps. This generally fixes it. I don't know what's
causing it however. Maybe the phone? Maybe Jellybean? Maybe Google play? I
don't know. But I will say, that I'm not THAT much of a techie but I
haven't found anything yet that I can't fix on my own phone. So, I'm still
happy with it. I am sorry for any folks who have had issues that I can't
help them fix though. There's only so much I can do without have their
particular phone in my hands to look into things more easily. If you can't
Google a fix for your issue, you can always call the dreaded Straight Talk
customer service. If they can't fix it and they start losing patience, they
probably hope you will hang up because I don't think they're supposed to.
Just keep politely pushing through. You'll either get transferred a couple
more times, or they'll fix it. If they still won't, remind them that you're
within your 1 year warranty and that if they can't fix it that you want a
replacement (that usually makes them scurry for a magical fix and you get
transferred to someone that actually knows what the hell they're doing).
Again, apologies that I'm not able to do all tech support on this phone.
Keep in mind...the reason this video even EXISTS is that there wasn't a
single video about this phone when I bought the phone. For that reason
alone, I did my own research and bought the phone, and then made the video.
muddymuddymuddmann: HELLO MIRANDA, HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU.
I have the ZTE Savvy, when i try to listen to on line radio stations, i get
the alert-you need adobe flash player to listen to this content, and when i
click on the message it says," you device does not support this app. I'm
hoping you figured out how to get past this. Thanks in advance.
Hunterbow243: Can you but apps on the sd card???
Miranda Galloway: Brianna, the screenshot question has been answered probably 3 or 4 times in
comments at this point: Volume down + lock/power button. And yes, you can
save pics. From text, tap the paperclip, then save. From Facebook, view the
pic, then tap your menu key and select save.
Patti Meek: Sorry I have the zte majesty cell through straight talk !!!!
Miranda Galloway: Sarah, volume down & lock button simultaneously.
Lauren May: How do you install a hot spot?
brwnsugga3292: I dont know if this will help...but do u have a memory card in your
phone...if so..make sure itz a new one purchased for tht phone only...using
a used one from another phone can corrupt your card and cause your phone to
power on and off randomly...i changed phones several times before i did
some research and figured tht out :-)
Megan Niemi: Can u use a hotspot on this phone
bob git: Help please! I have this phone and most of the time when I send texts the
phone says they sent but the person I send them to doesn't get them. I've
tried to fix it but nothing works, and other people have had this problem
as well. It's not the other persons phone, that's been ruled out. Someone
please help me fix this.
Ken Teets: Thanks for the review, didnt mention battery life for ur use, thats
different with each person, but very informative. The bottom 3 buttons are
like stock android, samsung changes them. I have a nexus phone and a
samsung tablet, so I always have to think or hit the wrong one. That lock
screen is ZTE not jelly bean( FYI) looks prety cool. Thanks again.
Jenn Siler: Sarah to do a screen shot just hold the - volume and the power button for a
second and it will save it to a folder called screen shots where you can
share them or edit them :)
Nick Mitchell: Thank you so much for this now i know which phone i want and im excited

twice in under 15 mins. Wtf. This mofo needs a software update or
Abbershay: I just got this phone and i loaded my music to it but when i go to play the
music is says cannot play given music , do you have idea what could be
Jim Bryan: I just ordered this phone for my life and Straight Talk is giving $50 off
(today only on phones $150 or more) and free overnight shipping.
FYI, I have an LG phone with Jelly Bean that I had random reboot problems
with it. In my case it was a buggy app. I don't remember which APP it
was, but I uninstalled it and the reboots went away.
Kei Barnes: Hi Miranda
Does this phone give you the option to lock it with a pattern or numeric
lock code? Also just ordered it and wanted to know if you've had any
problen with it since your review?
Ericka Verret: Does the ZTE Majesty have hotspot or tethering capabilities?
Jackie Howard: I am thinking of buying this for hubby's first smartphone. Enjoyed the
becca pate: Are you able to see emojis?
Tina Mike: Musicdjz1 mine did the same thing had to block all the Google Apps from
updating, Google is the problem, from my research Google and jelly bean
don't work well together , for me it wasn't an issue to do that because I
don't use most of those services. Such as hangouts and Google music I
stopped 6 altogether

Echo Bailey: hi Miranda I had to buy this phone 3 times in 1 week... My phone is always
charged when it needs to be. The phone dies so fast from 35% to 0% it was
weird.. this morning my phone was 100% fully charged today than in 20mins
it went straight to 0%.. i have never over charged this battery or any
battery for a phone.. I am hearing that the app called mi-power app that
comes with the phone is having glitches where the phone dies quickly.. I
have been trying to unistall the app but i can only force stop it. and When
I try and force stop it, the app refuses to stop and it keeps running. I
also hear i need to download go launcher to make the app compatiable. I am
not sure what is going on.. I am not sure if anyone else is having this
same problem.. Only thing I have running is everything that has came with
the phone, plus facebook. Everything else is turnedoff. Even my wifi is
turned off. What Can i do? please help me i cant keep returning the phone.
Straight talk refuses to help
Eric Hensley: I cannot find the alphanumeric keyboard. I want to use qwerty when it's
horizontal but I'd like to use the 3x4 T9 keyboard when I hold it
vertically. I've been thru all the setting several times and still can't
MusicDJz1: Anyone have a problem with this phone restarting by itself? Noticed it
happens when I'm watching YouTube for a few hours :/. My 30 day return
window from straight talk's customer service is gonna expire Thursday and
I'm trying to decide to get a refund or exchange it!
Tyler Bagget: On straight talks website, it states that the majesty only has a 1.2GHz
processer. It doesn't say a duel core processer.
Bethany Cuevas: TouchPal X is a free version it's a very reliable Swype keyboard and it's
full of customizing features
Ashley Hoffman: I have tried the down key & the power key its not working.
kayla temples: okay good so its a pretty good phone??
Kayla Ray: Can you put a signature for your out going text messages cause I have the
Samsung galaxy centura ad it don't have that option but I downloaded
handcent so I'd have a signature, does this home have that option?
Margaret Adams: Thank you. I too have a limited phone budget and now use ST. This was a
good review - simple and informative. I have to choose between three in my
price range. Godd to know.
darron comstock: great review
Max Hoxha: I like chat with u o7720609981
Sarah Spindler: I have this phone and haven't been able to figure out how to do a
screenshot... and ideas on how to?
David Cunningham: very good review, I am thinking about getting one of these ;)
Jaxon Burgess: Re earbud jack not working:
After trying several sets of headphones/earbuds with no joy, as a last try
before returning the phone I shut it down completely, plugged in my earbuds
and rebooted. For some unknown reason, that worked and now they work all
the time as soon as they are plugged into the jack.
Josh Hankins: sometimes my touchscreen likes to not register me clicking anything.. like
my phone will sit there are act stupid or some crap.. i just purchased this
phone yesterday and now i cant even do anything on it. only the touch
screen commands dont work, the power button, and the volume buttons work..
KoRnBread: Hey, does it have a plastic or glass screen? I would guess plastic because
of the price.
Heather Hazel: Miranda Galloway·
Austin Beaumont: Please make a video showing how fast web browsing and YouTube is. Please
Miranda Galloway: Mine works fine. The only thing i had to get used to is that if I want to
SEND video via MMS, I have to go through and open message and record the
video from the message. It changes the format to a smaller file size. I've
otherwise had no issues with video.
jeff n: I didnt even enter the IMEI number or nothing all I did was call the * 22
what ever number it told me to do and next thing I kw I have a new number
but il call tmw I just hate talking to them so hard to understand
Miranda Galloway: The seller I usually buy cases from hasn't posted them like they said they
would. I may message them again soon. I need a case before I end up
destroying it. Lol
SkinnyWrapzMB: Also, my video doesn't always record, I get a message that it cannot be
played right after i record one.
