    I ordered a similar case from Amazon at a bit more ($7.99 delivered) but it is a package including a silicon rubber case, screen protector and stylus (always can use 1 more!). Will report back on it when received.

    Update: Receive today. Forget it! Stylus-fine! Screen protector-OK (1st one I've done-no hints to get bubble, dust free). Case is ng! 3 of the cutouts weren't-just 'embossed' and cutting them out wasn't very good. Asked for a replacement.

    Update 2-Seller claims it is as it should be, without cutouts for volume, power or camera buttons. However, Amazon ad/specs says it should have them for all ports and buttons. I posted an unfavorable review.

    I probably shouldn't have given link showing Reiko covers. That just happens to be the brand I bought. I'm sure there are many other brands that work great. However, I did buy one that was miserable to get to fit and when I did, I hated it since it was not rubberized. It was like trying to hold a wet bar of soap.

    Wrj54: Thanks for the link and in my searches on Amazon I hadn't caught the Reiko. I think it is OK to post a link on where you got a product and liked it. That's one of the pluses of these forums.

    There are apps available on the Play Store that can move downloaded apps to the SD card. I use Advanced SD Card Manager and works for me, but you may want to check out other like apps.

    Patagium,
    Thanks so much for that correction of what I said! It's great that the apps can really be moved to the SD Memory card.

    I use Clean Master which reminds me to move-if it can- when installed. However, not all apps can. Does the app you use move all?

    I'm getting the Valet for Christmas and have already bought a case. I wanted an hybrid for extra protection and found the Trident Ageis listed under ZTE Director. Cases and screen protector for the ZTE Fury and Director both work with the Valet. The Trident case is a little more than I would have normally spent on a case, but it seems like it will be worth it. Here's a link for the one I got, the price includes shipping and they sell it in many colors.

    If you'd like more information on the case you can check out their website where they have some videos too. Amazon's price is a lot better than ordering from Trident, by the way.

    I had a lot of trouble with the screen protector on my ZTE Valet Android phone and had to take it off. In a brightly lit room or outdoors during the day, the light interfered with phone calls causing the screen to fade in and out. Just an FYI.

    Thanks for the information . I don't use my phone that much, just for emergencies or seeing if my mom needs something if I'm out shopping. I found some on Amazon for the Valet and they seem to have a lot of good reviews and don't like to use the phone without a screen protector, I've seen too many screens get scratches all over them to do without.

    Here's a link to the ones I got, maybe they're something you could use.

    The Trident is a very nice looking case. Yes , expensive but nice.

    To move apps to SD card:
    settings
    apps
    select desired app
    Move to SD card
    the button will dim while moving then change to - Move to phone
    back
    go to next app
    a little time consuming but saves space on your phone.

    Thanks for the info. Just signed up with this forum, and right away got some good info. Yeah, the text message is not a free one, but the app makes it easier to make the inquiry. Shouldn't need to use it that often.

Maybe with time, more information will surface about rooting, then you'll be able to move more apps to the SD.
    I am so sorry that I am not remembering where I saw this or who posted it, but I do believe someone posted that you can go to Manage Apps on you phone and look at each app individually yo see whether you can move it to the SD card. The thing I wanted to mention is that there is an app called All-In-One Toolbox that I have found very helpful for telling my ZTE Valet Android 4.1.1 phone to inactivate certain apps to give its memory less to focus on, etc. One of the more nifty things it does is to notify me to move certain apps to the SD card to free up the internal memory.

    Of the apps I've tried, I have a problem with Vine and QR & Bar Code Scanner only. The Vine app does not yet support recording on the ZTE Valet. That is what a message says when I try to record. I haven't gotten a response from Vine, but I am presuming that that is temporary. The message does say "yet".

    The QR & Bar Code app does not scan. I think that the problem is that the camera cannot focus on something that close. The image looks blurred to the eye. I've tried a second similar app and it doesn't scan either. If you read the reviews of these scanner apps, not everyone can get them all working on every device. I suppose it could be a matter of finding the right scanner app for the ZTE Valet, but I doubt it.

    I recommend this phone.

    I downloaded the pic2shop app and I was able to scan a few bar codes with my ZTE Valet. If it doesn't scan, you can type in the bar code number.

After transfer, I had 200 units in each of the 3 categories: Minutes, Texts and MB of Data. Did I lose or gain anything? I don't know.

    Strange, when I transferred my 2,430 minutes on my old Tracfone to the ZTE, I received 2,430 in each....Talk, Text, Data.

    That's what you should get. In my case, they gave me ~9x of each because of an error on Tracphone's end....not complaining. ;-]

    Lucky you, after I transferred my minutes from the old phone, I purchased a year card and received my triple minutes....nice! Haven't tried my data yet, keep it turned off and just use wifi. Not sure how much it will use to check email, etc.

    More than you would guess! I mainly use WiFi (need a strong signal I'm finding) but have used mobile data some. When you do try it, Data usage in system settings gives you a graphical display of cumulative use over a time period which you can select/adjust. It also shows below this bar charts of data use by app. For me, mail use- even with mail app set to d/l only headers and no pixs- is 40-50% of Total. Example: from 1/18/14 to 2/6/14, I used about 36.3 MB in about a total of 4 short sessions. 17.8 MB was for e-mail, mainly headers (seems high, only d/ld the full message for a few) and 6.5 MB for the stock browser. I just found out if you tap the bar for each app shown, you can view the app settings and also restrict that app in getting 'background' data and to only use Non-mobile networks if available. Need to try that next time I do mobile data use.

    I don't question a single fact, display or setting that you mention, but my overall impression is exactly the opposite. I am surprised at how much I can do with very little mobile data usage. This is probably because I can't be bothered to look at email when I am away from WiFi. I take lots of pictures that I post to Instagram, Facebook, etc., I check in with Foursquare everywhere I go and upload a picture too and I track my drives in the car and dog walks with 2 other apps. I've barely made a dent in the 2 GB of data that I bought (with a data card). I don't have any quantitative data to support my impression. By the way, I do concur that you need a strong WiFi signal.

    Well that sounds encouraging. I'm starting off with 3.64 GB of data, so I'll have to check my email a few times to see how much I use.
