My Asus Memopad 8 died so I was looking for a cheap but decent tablet.
Came across the ZTE Trek 2 HD for $59.99 on Ebay.
Reviews seem to be pretty good so I pulled the plug.
Going to try a Freedompop sim in it since it is LTE enabled
I can't believe how good this tablet is for $59.99
Also, the Freedompop sim works so I have an 8 inch backup phone LOL
I'm impressed so far. My tablets usually last a while so this one is a keeper
I have 2 trek 2's and h20 sim card and it says i am connected to H20 network 4g etc. but have no idea how to set up phone & data etc. can you help?
With Freedompop, they have their own dialer and messaging app so I have to use that. I could not set it up in the stock dialer of the Trek 2. It would not accept it.
I am guessing because I don't know but I think only the AT&T sim is the only one that can be used w/the stock dialer. They have it integrated in the set up process.
You can try what Jimlloyd suggested but I was unsuccessful
yes I have had zero success with the H20 sim card. just ordered a freedom pop see how that works. other than that very impressed with the Trek2 so much so I just ordered one for my wife as well.
Thanks for your input.
The stock dialer is supposed to use AT&T's Number Sync App on this tablet. I knew nothing about it.
NumberSync Wireless Phone Feature – AT&T
So, it's not a true "phone" per se but an app that allows you to make calls with the same phone number as your AT&T account.
Well, I don't have an AT&T account and don't plan on gettting one. So for fun, I just ordered a freedompop sim to check it out and figured out to use the FP app/dialer/text messaging all in one app
Related note: The only things "bad" about this tablet are the screen resolution and the weight (little heavy than other tablets I've had). But, for me, these are minor issues. I won't complain over a $60 tablet that is snappy fast and useful.
I haven't seen this tablet, but have heard good things. For the price it would make an awesome reader!
The price on Ebay actually went up $20.
People are snatching this tablet up left and right.
I'm using mine more and my Zmax Pro is getting lonely lol
