The phone is ok. However I am a IT student and the bad thing about the phone is that you CAN NOT move the app to your SD card. The move app bottom is not even shown on the app setting window. Even if you have old files on your SD card IT will not show as a such. I have tried moving it with the file manager app but if you go back and look at the SD card storage bar IT show the same amount of memory like it is a blank SD card.

it's been a week since i've had my zte max/metropcs.
i have to tell you...this phone rocks! it's a maverick! sound;sharpness;quick and fast;no lag whatsoever;youtube and movies look outstanding;5.7 screen that's awesome;bulky but firm and strong! and all i payed was $99 for the phone, and $56 for the first month and handset insurance. i added apus launcher and it moves effortlessly. there is but one minor drawback.it does not support flash. besides that, no need to spend $600 bucks for a big phone. this one will do....

jones189, 09 Jan 2015i am interestet in the zmax and if i buy it from walmart will it still have wifi calling. i i ... moreNo wifi calling does not work through family mobile (walmart). It only works through T-Mobile service. When you connect to wifi, you get an error message saying "invalid SIM card error".
Anonymous, 25 Jan 2015So zte is good phoneI have had this phone for a little over a month. Me and my wife bought both of ours together and have had the same experiences as follows: It does have a huge screen and excellent battery life as well as the largest internal storage ive found for cheap phones, but there are several problems which family mobile (a service of T-Mobile) confirms. First is the light sensor sucks. It blinks constantly making it nearly impossible to do anything on the phone while talking, though it claims to have those abilitites. The abilities are there, but because the light sensor gets confused, it hardly works. Second is the volume setting eventually stop working. I have my phone on vibrate usually. When i hit the volume up, it does not channge the settings, making phone calls, text messages, and alarms impossible to hear when you need them. Third is if youre not on the straight T-Mobile network, you recieve an error saying "invalid SIM cars error" when connected to wifi. This just means wifi calling is not enabled due to not being o T-Mobile, but has no effect on the phones operation. Last, the internet connections run through diffferent servers forcing me to call customer service over and kver getting new access points. Overall, i give it 2.5 stars. Its cheap, huge, and amazing, except in the performance and reliability department. It falls very short of being reliable and actually funtioning accurately.
I accidentally turned on privacy protection password. Can someone please help I don't know how. Now my phone is locked I cant do anything about it.
Is it good to buy this phone at metropcs , need to know pros and cons
Can someone explain how to implement the Wi-Fi calling?
T-Mobile makes it sound like it will hand off automatic if there is weak cell signal.
I haven't begun to set it up; but I know I need that Wi-Fi calling where I am.

hotrod, 21 Jan 2015You can't open the back of the phone. You can't replace the battery.No you can't remove the back. The battery is non removable.
Pros: Huge screen, exceptional battery life that will last more than all day with moderate to high use (within reason), lots of memory that is expandable, the phone runs smooth - so smooth that I can play Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (which is a rather large app from the playstore) without any lag or problems, browsers run seamlessly
Cons: Display is not the greatest but isn't bad, phone is too big for my right thumb to reach the top left of the screen and will often require both hands, camera quality is just ok
BOTTOM LINE: For being so gentle on your wallet, the ZMAX is surprisingly decent in nearly all categories. Although it will take time for you to get used to such a large display, don't let that hold you back from going with the ZMAX. it's not always convenient, having to use two hands, but everything else more than makes up for it. If you're not into getting an 800 dollar top of the line phone, this is the next closest thing at an affordable price. Especially if you need something that lasts all day, and then some.
