Stay away.. I bought this phone on sale from Radio Shack about 3 months ago. It was great for the first two, was a nice improvement over my old phone. Shortly after the 2nd month i started having display problems, i would hit the top "wake up" button and the screen would light up but be all black. Then it started doing this snowy old tv screen look that couldn't get a picture. If you messed with it tapped on the screen sometimes it would work. Then I noticed that plugging it in helped at first, i would have to wiggle the cord around some but it got annoying. Shortly after that it got worse, now the screen lights up and no matter what i do all i see is black. I can't do anything with the phone. I'm currently waiting on a reply from the ZTE customer service in hopes they can do something.
Worst part is i'm not the only one, my girlfriend also bought this phone after i talked about how much better it was from our old phone and she is also having the same problem. After doing a little searching around the internet I've found that it is a very common problem and several people said it happened to them around the 2 month mark as well. So buyer beware if you're looking for a cheap boost phone look somewhere else.
