Very slow to download mail and other functions, and not sensitive to touch, really have to poke an app or any other function such as phone or menu for it to respond. Has problem picking up wi-fi . Has a flash lite but not able to find out how to use it. Get a doorbell sound every 15 minutes that can't be explained. Have to turn sound off every nite. You get what you pay for.

Had this for 3 weeks now and it is almost un-useable. Have to repeatedly remove and re-insert the battery for it to work.

Even though this is my first smart phone and I am still learning big time, this phone kinda grows on you. It has so many features and amazing things to explore. But the thing that convinced me to like it is that my grandson, who is an Apple I-phone fanatic, loved it and was amazed by all the features. This kid is a techie and a genius with phones and computers and yet he said that the ZTE is comparable to his expensive I-phone which cost five times as much as the ZTE. I may change my mind later and hate this phone, but for now, it's fascinating .

Responding to others problems 1st. On Windows 8 you get these prompts when you first connect via USB, to install this or that driver. You MUST choose a mode (file access or something) on the phone's screen, or it will just sit and wait, and yes there are some drivers.. but I don't think you have to install those, just click on the phone screen to choose file transfer mode. The WiFi range is weak, but its still 40 feet for me, which is about the same as one laptop of mine. THE PROBLEM IS BT! With Bluetooth on, the wifi signal really drops off on mine. Looks like as long as I have this phone, I will be toggling BT off to use WiFi. There is some complex radio science in using Cell/LTE, Wi-Fi, and BT at the same time. For those who don't know android, the on/off switches are on the home screen to left of the main one. Really easy to find in 2 secs. I have NOT yet switched my number over to this phone. Verizon is rock-solid here, so I assume that will work. This is my first android phone, so I am taking a week or two with it getting apps on, including the important magicjack app! That means I already use this as a phone wherever I have WIFI. And I am saving on data while all my apps get updated. It looks like many android phones use 1-3 GB of data PER MONTH! this would mean a $50 card, or adding 2000 minutes to the phone (and I don't call that much). So there are some very important settings that all Tracfoney peeps need to learn. Search google for articles on saving data. The NUMBER ONE thing to do is install an app like "DATA ON-OFF," and create the widget, which then appears under the switches, on the LEFT screen. This app, when greyed, will cut off data service, even if an app has permission to turn it on (some do). By data here I mean 4G(charged), not your Wifi(free). There are several other tweaks I am learning, but having great fun and using my new Android phone. Again, I recommend you BUY and start using this phone on WiFi, preferably with Skype or MagicJack app installed, get some apps, get the data locks set, and THEN activate it. Bluetooth was "off" by default on mine, but it seemed to hurt my WiFi range if enabled. If you don't have wifi, Internet or a PC, Android is probably not for you, unless you get an "unlimited" plan. I don't often rate things, but this phone is MUCH better than the other raters are saying. Call quality sounds great (mic and speaker) and screen is a nice size.

As noted by other reviewers does have weak Wi-Fi reception. Seems to be the best option for TracFone. I had tried a Samsung Centura but it would not activate properly. Sent it back to HSN and ordered the valet. It's certainly not an Apple iPhone or a Samsung galaxy four but it is a good option for a smart phone on the tracfone network. It's fairly fast, has a good display and works like any android phone.

Phone is garbage

I got the ZTE Valet and expected a good phone. The phone looses a Wi-Fi signal at 20 feet and my other cellphones worked at over 100 feet. The phone signal is also weak.

I got the ZTE Valet and expected a good phone. The phone looses a Wi-Fi signal at 20 feet and my other cellphones worked at over 100 feet. The phone signal is also weak. When I had 3 or 4 bars on my old phone I had 1 to no bars on the ZTE Valet. I went by 2 different towers and the ZTE only had 3 bars and my old phone had the maximum signal bars. Evidently another cheep worthless product from China. As a trackfone it does not give you any info to track the time used as all the other trackfones do. To find out how much time you have used or have left you have to go the Trackfone web site and click on Check Your Balance.

just got my ZTE Valet and am returning it. It's a total turkey. After turning it on I was able to get it to connect to the wifi in my home but it took a few tries because the on screen kbd keys are so small it was hard to enter the WPA key without making mistakes. My first inclination was so far so good. But then I tried to connect it to my PC to move over contacts from my old phone (an LG800) and that's where I ran into problems doing something that should be a no brainer. When I connect my LG to my PC with the usb to mini usb cable the PC (running win XP) recognizes the SD drive right off the bat. When I did the same with the ZTE Valet it wanted me to install some drivers. OK, so I install the drivers. 2 drives show up in Windows Explorer. The first is a tiny 12MB partition that has the driver install on it. When I go to click on the 2nd windows says "please insert a disc". For some reason the ZTE supplied driver is looking to windows like a CD-ROM. Not good. Restarting the machine yields no better results. Next I try going in to the settings on the Android phone and changing the PC connection settings so it won't automatically install the driver. Options are to make it look like a media device or a camera. Either way the SD card won't show up as a drive and the system wants a media application I don't have and don't want to bother installing. Next attempt was to pull the SD card from my LG and just put it in the ZTE directly. No better luck here because although it did see the mp3s on the SD it would only recognize some of them. So much for wanting to customize my ringtones like I have on the LG. Then I took a crack at downloading a SW tool from ZTE called "JoinMe". Initially this tool wouldn't even see the phone was there. But then I recalled I'd uninstalled the drivers that the phone had installed. So I went back and changed the setting PC connection setting from Media to Auto Install and once the drivers installed the JoinMe app on Win XP started to recognize there was a phone there but couldn't get the device info. The app had some tips in very broken English that I eventually figured out wanted me to go to the settings, developer options, and activate the developer options and then enable USB debugging mode. Once I did that it started to recognize the device info and it then wanted to push some driver up onto the phone so I let it. However even after it did that, while the JoinMe tool was able to get the device info that was all it was able to do. All of the tool icons at the top of the JoinMe win XP app stayed greyed out. It was like ZTE's own app for talking to the phone couldn't even communicate with it. And just to get it that far required putting the phone in developer mode and turning on debugging, all of which I'm sure is not very conducive to phone security. So I never even bothered to have TracFone move my phone number to it. Instead I called the 800 number on the 30 day no hassle warranty and got a return authorization because after trying for 3 hours to do something the LG can do in 30 seconds (even though it's not a "smart" phone) and seeing the meager, miserable documentation in broken English that ZTE has for the Valet I was real sure this phone would be nothing but trouble if I kept it. If your really want an Android phone from TracFone then spring the extra for the Samsung since it is probably not half baked like this ZTE Valet is. I myself am going to wait a little longer and hope TracFone picks some better models to offer than this turkey...
