This phone available at metro pcs is unlocked and can be used globally? Pls anyone help asap??
I got this phone unlocked, new on Ebay. I have had it for over a week, and must say this phone is AWESOME. I had a few problems getting AT&T sim card to work, but now all is great and I am very happy with my purchase. Great bang with bells and whistles for the buck!
In regarding to the unlocking for metro pcs. A phone outright from MetroPCS WILL NOT be able to be unlocked until it has been on a service plan for 90 days with no lapse in payment. There is an unlock app that comes standard on all metro phones. Pretty cool.
ortega, 20 Aug 2016i had problems with the red connection since the firts week i went to metro pcs and they told ... moreI had the same connectivity problems with my Alcatel with metro. I don't know why it should have been set up.right from the office when I bought it but in my town phone service can be problematic and I don't have to go. I had the unlimited plan with metro. I called the metro customer service. They were Excellent! They went; No the settings n my phone and changed them while I was on the phone with them . I then no they had to preset some codes. If you like your phone and you can't get connected call the customer serviice. 24 hr metro line. Belvedere me they were very nice. Since I did that. I had no problems .it'd on the settings of your phone status.they will help you. I don't know why the syore could not do it right the first time but all is well now! Good luck.

I am on a tmobile plan and i was wondering would I just be able to buy a metropcs zm... moreNot really you have get a plan to activate the phone so you cant just purchase the phone and walk out. You would need to unlock i think but because your looking to use it on t-mobile but metro is basically t-mobile so you may not have to. Total for the phone including one month os metro service is $135 ( ZTE ZMAX PRO $99 + $30 PLAN + tax.)
You can also port your number and get a major discount on the phone. In my area its $40 if you port from AT&T, Sprint, etc...
I bought the unlock code but its been almost 24 hrs and still nothing. Beware that you may need to unlock and the phone and may take couple of days.
What I am considering is buy a gophone (AT&T) sim kit for $10 then port the number to Metro get the ZMAX PRO for $40 plus the $30 plan then unlock for $5-$10 Ebay. Just get the phone for $90 - $100 maybe $110 for things unforeseen.
I've had this phone for about 12 hrs and coming from a galaxy note 4 since they were released, I'm impressed!!!! I've tried other replacements but this one rocks!!!!!! Great phone for the price.

I am on a tmobile plan and i was wondering would I just be able to buy a metropcs zmax pro and slide a tmobile sim card into it?
The ZTE Zmax Pro from Metro PCS does support Fast Changing, or quick charge. I saw it in a video by Paul Tech. He showed what happens when u plug a fast charging cable into the phone when it's off, it says fast charging at the top of the battery icon when it's in. There's also a message tht pops up when ur phone is on and u plug the fast charging cable slightly into the port, it says to "plug the cord in all the way for a fast charge, it's only charging normally." So the phone does in fact, have fast charging, it just doesn't say it on this website or at Metro.
this phone is great . no problems at all. and the price is what i think is reasonable.
i had problems with the red connection since the firts week i went to metro pcs and they told me to expand my data so i got the unlimited after that nothing is been change i have to reset the phone at least ones a day i went back to the store with the internet not working and they told me that i had the data off but they did turn the data off and back on to make it work. and i have the same connection problems at home even if i am sitting next to my moden and i do have a good internet package

Here's an answer to your question: with Marshmallow 6.x, you don't "move apps" to the SD card. Instead, you need to format and mount your sd card to your phone in the storage menu, and then it will expand your storage overall and the card will behave like normal storage. It's more convenient when set up, just make sure you don't cheap out on your sd card because it can be more difficult problem to fix if the sd card breaks!

Does anybody know if this phone supports dual sim cards? Couldn't find that info on the specs page.

jtravis667, 14 Aug 2016i cant figure out how to move apps to my sd cardYou cant move apps to the sd card anymore. It was disabled in Android 5.? i dont remember the name tho, ice cream cone maybe? im pretty sure 6 called marshamallow.
Had this phone for 6 days. Speaker went out, metro pcs gave me the runaround, instead of giving me a new phone immediately I had to go to the warranty store where I was advised that since it was a new phone I would have to wait a few days for a new one. What kind of customer service is that?
