ZTE Z796C Majesty - Straight Talk




What do you think about this video?

Miranda Galloway: This video and phone are now over a year old. Forgive me if I don't reply to every comment or answer every question. If anyone sees an unanswered question and knows an answer...feel free to answer it for them. I'll leave comments active as long as people are civil.

Twiin Ciity: does this phone have tons of non Google 'bloatware'. could you name them all?thanks

Matthew Simmons: This phone is a piece of crap. I have know 4 people who have had this phone making me number 5. The first person I knew to get it has trouble with it being extremely slow and not being able to get any coverage anywhere. She took it back. I decided to get the phone even though she had troubles out of it. I thought it was just a bad batch of phones. She tried to warn me. My nephew has this phone, the touch screen stopped working after about 2 months, he was able to convince the place he got it from to exchange it for another one. He is now having trouble with the touch screen again not working at times, it restarting all the time during apps, and it being extremely slow. My father in law has the zte majesty and it does all of the same things above. I have the zte majesty and my phone goes crazy at times calling the wrong people. It restarts with me watching YouTube, it constantly buffers even though it has a perfect Wi-Fi signal, it restarts during apps, it's extremely slow, the touch screen seems very bugged at times, it shuts off even though my phone still has about 10% battery life left, it did however only completely lock up one time, but the constant restarting makes up for that. I suggest you don't buy this phone. It is the worst phone ever. Ugh..

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.

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?

Kim Bench: my zte majesty wont connect to internet. it also turns off all the time. pleas help I need internet

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.

Mark Yocco: Miranda, I attempted to send a message a minute ago and I m not sure if it went through. Anyway, this morning when I turned my phone on it was not capable of making a phone call. Last night I got an update for Google Play and updated and I wonder it that messed it up. I have not have this problem before and I ve had the phone for about 6 months. Can you HELP?!!!

T.j. Hall: does this cell phone run of verizon towers?

Miranda Galloway: Sarah, volume down & lock button simultaneously.

Miranda Galloway: Sounds like you've just found ways to overload it...shouldn't be an issue. Lol. Download Clean Master. It will show when you're running too much RAM. It helps remind you which apps can be moved to SD. It's one of the best maintenance apps I've ever found. And if you start running a little slow, run it...restart the phone...when it's fully loaded, run the boost on it again. Also, do you notice it in using certain apps? Or a certain keyboard?

Kaylee Adair: Miranda I have heard alot about this phone that its crappy what are ur thoughts and can u get Internet anywhere I would like to get a phone like this that has the light thing that shows up but my main question is how well it does with the texting the calls and Internet I like texting and getting on the Internet alot and playing games my mom is afraid that ill use up the Internet cause I have not wifi at my house but every one around me has there's is locked and I don't want to be askin for their passwords hope u understand wat I'm asking 

Don Saxton: This is my first 4.1 jellybean device also :o

Miranda Galloway: Yes, Morgan. I still love the phone. The only issues have been that some apps cause it to restart. Hulu and Words with Friends have done this. I need to trying running the same fix on WwF that I did on Hulu. And also on occasion, when I turn phone from silent to volume on, my incoming texts stay silent. Restarting the phone fixes this. Essentially though...I realize that all phones have their quirks. The ones I've found have been very minor and usually easy fixes with apps and such. I'm still quite happy with it. :)

Bonnie Rehder: Please Help! What do I need to do to get my computer to recognize this phone so I can get my pictures to my computer?

Donavan Trahan: The Walking dead!!!! HELL YEAH!!!

Dakota Brown: I was wondering if anyone knows how to make the drop down setting buttons smaller. When you pull the screen down to see notifications, the settings along the top of the screen. My little setting buttons keep getting bigger and I have no idea how to make them smaller. Can anyone help?

Miranda Galloway: For those who have asked, they have new cases on ebay. Search "zte majesty impact hybrid hard soft case" and the top option is what I ordered. I haven't got it yet, but it's the same style as the one I showed in my video. And the one my fiance ordered can be found by searching "For ZTE Source N9511 Majesty Hybrid Hard + Soft Silicone w/ Stand Cover Case." His is equally as good.

Sapphire Guerra: My touchscreen out of no were stoped working any thoughts why ? or how i can fix it instead of paying money to get it fixed on a budget right now need help 

Peyton Moore: where does the sim card go

Miranda Galloway: Well, I did research and tried to make a video that answered the questions I would've had. I didn't know how it would be received. I'm glad so many of you have liked it. :) I feel the love!

Trevon Cross: How to update the soware

Patrick Peterson: Did they completely dumb down this phone or something? I picked one up a few months ago and there is absolutely no storage space for anything but the apps that were already on the phone and maybe a couple of social media apps. Also, there are no APN settings so there's no way to receive multimedia messages.

alex ingram: This reminds me of the galaxy s 4

Catavis Burnside: My GB aren't up yet but my phone is running slow.. How can I fix this

Ashliegh Roh: I have the same one

Katelyn Mincey: Can you block #'s on this phone?

Adrienne Burris: My phone is stuck on the blue screen what can I do

SEBASTIAN JACKSON: The Processor In The ZTE Majesty Is Dual Core...

Miranda Galloway: Joanna, The outlines of the nav buttons are reflective, so they don't usually light up unless the phone decides the lighting is low enough to need them backlit. I don't think it's a glitch, just a little odd. And I don't think there's any way to toggle it on. It doesn't bother me at all now that I'm used to it. 

JD McMillan: Hey is there a preinstalled flashlight on the phone? Or do I have to download one, cause all the ones I've tried are covered with ads.

Ashliegh Roh: Her phone has a lot more difference's from mine.

Robbie Golphin: Someone PLEASE help... The 3 bottom buttons on my phone won't work anymore. Please tell me what to do... please

EngageBrainCells: HELP ! cookies were disabled on Majesty ZTE...how do I enable them again?

Donald Kennamer: How can I delete my gmail account on this ZTE Z796C Majesty phone

Dakota Busick: My majesty randomlly shut off and eont turn back on. And a red light blinks once when i press the power button and once countnuallsly when plugged it. I need help. ASAP 

mfireall: Miranda Galloway my son put a passcode on my phone and now he can't remember what it is and its not even activated yet so how would I be able to unlock it

Miranda Galloway: My fiance sold his Huawei W1 and bought the Majesty and he's so happy now! :D 

jesusdaughter37: When I plug my headphones in the music only plays out of the right ear bud. How do I fix that? I know it's the phone because I plugged my headphones into my Kindle and they worked perfectly

Joseph Slabaugh: I have 2, one for my wife and one for myself. For some reason, I can't get my wife's to work while at home, but we can make all the calls we want in town.

andrea wright: When I get a text I have no sound. Its just the green light letting me no I have a message or gmail. I have went in to the text settings I have went in to the settings. Still on sound. I have turned my phone on and off even taken the battery out. Still no luck. Can u help me figure it out?

Miranda Galloway: For some reason, YouTube isn't showing "reply" links next to some of your names. Okay, right now I'm addressing the restarting issue. Yes, mine has just started doing this too. It hasn't done it with youtube yet, but it does it with Hulu. I reported the issue to them and they gave me some troubleshooting steps. I haven't gone through them yet, but I'm about to. I honestly don't think it's anything wrong with the phone. It doesn't do it all the time, just Hulu and maybe 1 other app though I forget which. I will let you know when I get it figured out.

Becca Boo: Have you had any issues with WiFi? I cannot connect at all. It says it is searching, but nothing. It worked before, but for the past few weeks, it stopped. 

Jerry Falk: How do i get the voice to stop reading me everything on my phone?

Jaimie Petty: I go into my system update spot and it says copy update package to storage card for system update. But when I tried to do this it tells me there aren't any on my phone and I have the ZTE majesty. I have other tech sites and they want to charge money for the answer a lot of money for the answer. I cannot update anything including my profile on my phone without first doing this thing that it tells me to do but the cell phone tells me nothing found. I hope that made sense.

home church remnant: The auto rotate stopped working. I just bought it. I tried restarting and taking the battery out and turning it back on several times. I searched in the settings to see if there was an option to turn on or off the auto rotate but I couldn't find one. I've looked online for an answer cannot find a solution. Any ideas?

Kayle Griffin: I just want to know how to copy & paste

Gretchen Corban: I get a flashing green light & a green smiling box but NOT an audio notification of a text message. How do I fix this?

Becca Boo: Have you had any issues with WiFi? I cannot connect at all. It says it is searching, but nothing. It worked before, but for the past few weeks, it stopped.
