Did this video help you?

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. MUDDy

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 again. Also, do you notice it in using certain apps? Or a certain keyboard?

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

Peyton Moore: where does the sim card go

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 pissies me off cause it does like 3 or 4 times a day. Today it restarted twice in under 15 mins. Wtf. This mofo needs a software update or something.

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 wrong?

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 helpful.

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

Tyler Bagget: So were did you find where its a duel core???

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 find it.

andrea emig: Help please..I have this phone and someone messed with it and now all the sound coming out of it (music,ringtones,notifications) are all high pitched 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 is high pitched like chipmunks.

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?

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 all?thanks

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.. help?

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 following message: "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.

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. 

Dinoxt12: Thanks

Tricia Cox: yes there is on ebay 

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

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 :)

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 

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

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: 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.

Jackie Howard: I am thinking of buying this for hubby's first smartphone. Enjoyed the review.

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: Hi. I just got my majesty. I can play or view videos on Facebook. I'm not technically advanced and need your help. Thanks so much.

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: Plz get bk 2 me as soon as possible thank u 

gabriel morgan: Thank you so much because of you i have decided to order this phone by the way awesome first review. :)

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

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. 

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!
