I HAVE TO KEEP IT TURNED OFF BECAUSE EVEN WHEN IT IS SUPPOSEDLY LOCKED. THE SCREEN WILL COME ON EVEN IN THE CASE AND IT KILLS THE BATTERY! Plus the slider is lose and it takes very blurry pictures, not that I expected much for use as a camera. But it is useless for me for people to call me at work. I only use it as a back up phone now at work. I bought a better one. Do not buy this junk! Less

ZTE C70 Screen Issues

Although I like this phone, but, I've only had this phone for a few months and THE SCREEN KEEPS GOING BLANK!tHE OLE wHITE SCREEN! I have to shut the phone off, then back on again; still, it only remains on for a short period of time.

I bought this few days ago and activated it works fine with the phone, after 4 days the problem showed with screen frozen. I dont know how many people have this kind problem for using this fone? I brought back to store and told them the problem, that guy simplly took off the battery and then put it back, For now it works ok, but i dont it will happens again
