Welcome to AF.

I don't know much about your phone but if you are having data issues and have not done anything to your phone i would bring it back to metro to see if they will warranty it.

I had this happen last week. I was using a battery saver app, it had a network data switch which I cannot find in the menu on this phone. I think the app may have turned it off. Not sure really. I went to bed and woke up to no data. even the guy at MetroPCS could not find it. he was even using a ZTE avid as his personal phone. all my other Android devices have had that. I did a factory restore and it brought back mobile data connectivity

I have the same phone and the same thing happened to me. I restored the factory data and it fixed the problem. Be aware that the applications that you have installed will be deleted but you can always install them again. If you contact numbers are the same that on gmail you should be ok, if not then take a note at the important ones to add them again after restoring the factory data. Ok. Go to setting - Backup & reset - factory data reset.

After doing that my 4g appeared again. I think some of the applications I installed a day ago affected my 4g.

I would recommend that you start keeping track of what applications you install, some of these 'battery-savers' tend to change items that you would rather not have tampered with, yet it's needed so they can 'work'.

MetroPCS is racing to the top of the prepaid carrier pyramid and the ZTE Avid 4G is yet another great option for this affordable network. For only $150 off-contract, you get a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, a 4-inch display and Android 4.0. Not bad, ... Read More
