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.
Hunterbow243: Can you but apps on the sd card???
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.
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.
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
Also, do you notice it in using certain apps? Or a certain keyboard?
Miranda Galloway: Sarah, volume down & lock button simultaneously.
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.
Tim Madden: Im using this phone right now. and This phone can't handle YouTube half the
time. I'll be watching a video and *click* it restarts the phone. It

twice in under 15 mins. Wtf. This mofo needs a software update or

Peyton Moore: where does the sim card go
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?
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?
Shawn Jacobson: you just helped me make up my mind on a new phone. thank you. that was very
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.

Eric Hensley: I cannot find the alphanumeric keyboard. I want to use qwerty when it's

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?
andrea emig: Help please..I have this phone and someone messed with it and now all the

iv tried going into settings and sound but I can't fix it. I know its not
my speakers bc it is even high pitched through my earbuds and car radio.
Please help music is my life and it sounds weird high pitched! Even youtube

kayla temples: on this phone can you download alot apps?
Twiin Ciity: does this phone have tons of non Google 'bloatware'. could you name them
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..
Tiffany Taylor: this phone does have swipe. I have this phone and I use swipe on it
becca pate: Are you able to see emojis?
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!
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.
kayla temples: okay good so its a pretty good phone??
Jaxon Burgess: Re the "HYBRID T KICKSTAND COVER HARD GEL CASE for ZTE MAJESTY Z796C" that
were listed on eBay, the company just refunded my payment with the
"We are deeply sorry to inform you that we have been having a very
difficult time with this design from our new shipment. We have gotten
several complaints about this case not being able to completely slip onto
the phone which causes the cover to fall off constantly during use. We have
personally went to the vendor to switch it out but it seems like all the
cases for this design is defective."
They did offer to send me a free screen protector, but I have those and
will continue to wait for a good two-piece case. The payment was properly
refunded to my PayPal account.
alex ingram: This reminds me of the galaxy s 4
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.
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..
Tricia Cox: yes there is on ebay
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
itll be my first working smart phone!! Thanks mrs miranda
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
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.
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. :)
Jackie Howard: I am thinking of buying this for hubby's first smartphone. Enjoyed the
Luci Estes: I also like it...I bought my from Amazon.
Amazon also has a variety of cool protection cases available.
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
Crystal Hudson: I can't not can play videos
LeRoy Warren: Great review!
Sarah Kidd: Great review! You sold me. :)
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.
Brandon Bound: Whts the battery life and battery # like for ex my phone I have now is
1750mph cause I'm thinking bout getting this phone for my bday this wensday
and I need a phone with good battery life
gabriel morgan: Thank you so much because of you i have decided to order this phone by the
way awesome first review. :)
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!
Jerry Falk: How do i get the voice to stop reading me everything on my phone?
School: Thanks for teaching us how to fix it. The problem with most Medical assistant in california is usually the cost of education. Hopefully it'll pay off. Thanks again.
