    Greetings all,

    Had to get a new phone from Q-link wireless this was the cheapest. I have been trying to setup the voicemail when I enter my phone number it says that mailbox is invalid. I know the number is on the phone in the settings. I don't know what to do any suggestions would be so appreciated. I tried to download visual voicemail too and that just spins won't download.:(

    Good luck with Q-Link.
    I had their service back when they used Sprint as a carrier, and it was great.

    Then T-Mobile bought Sprint, and the service became worthless.

    So I was without a working device for three months, and could not even get anyone from Q-Link on the phone.

    I wound up getting the exact same device that you have now, in the hopes that a new device would be more compatible with the new system, but that was not the case.

    I ended up switching my provider to TruConnect.
    Unfortunately, TruConnect still uses the pitiful excuse for provider that is T-Mobile.

    But the device did work, just not at home.
    It worked fine while I was at work, where I am not able to use the phone.

    Then there were multiple times that the device decided that it was time to update- both apps and the device- which I did not want at all.

    Finally, I hit the wrong button once and it tried to update a bunch of crap that I find undesireable.
    That was the final straw for me, and I actually smashed the device onto the driveway and immediately went and got an unlocked device.

    I can totally appreciate not having the money to have a good device, and having to take what is available.

    I even actually really liked ZTE devices right up untill I had the Quest 5.
    I could not believe how bad ZTE had gotten.
    My first Android was the ZTE Maven 812, and my next device was a ZTE as well (557VL)

    These devices lasted for years and worked well, but the Quest 5 was basically a step backwards in all respects.

    Anyway, try dialing your own cell number.
    If you cannot get into voicemail that way, then try long pressing the 1 key on the dialer.

    mikedt 你好

    OT and P&CA:

    Is ZTE actually still a thing in the US?

    Or did they pretty much end? Like Huawei did in the States.

    Yeah, I have not seen them around.
    But you can still get them online, especially through cheap carriers like Q-Link, TruConnect, and others.
