Bill_SMy phone has decided to give me the sheep sound whenever I get email from AOL. I cannot figure out a wqay to stop that damn sheep, and that is NOT NOT NOT the sound I have indicated for notifications. This started after the last update.
BooneBoThis phone is great. I was fishing one day and it fell in the water found it 2 min later . it flashed red. I turned it off called it it loss. I put it in a bag with rice and rock salt put it in drawer forgot about it. I went to metro PC purchased a new phone 7 months later I lost the new phone. I was upset i could not find it, I opened the drawer seen the phone laughed took it out of the bag plugged it in came back 2 hrs later the phone took the charge. Its been a week and I am amazed no problems it works perfectly. Zte is the BOMB.. Plus it has 2 gig vid amazing talk talk time.
