syncing calendar and contacts

I have a new ZTE tracfon. Bottom line is that it will not sync my calendar nor contacts from our outlook (Verizon) acct. The manuals only share how to make an event entry in the calendar. Tracpon Chat couldn't find an answer so sent me on to tech support Tech support didn't have a clue.
I have absolutely no problems getting email, have never gotten an error phone says that my Verizon account is active and my gmail account.
I have hit sync calendar in every place I can find.
The tech at Tracfon said that I had to enter every event and contact manually into my new phone (?!?!?) That calendar (which is full, btw) syncs nicely on my desk top, on my IPAD and on my IPOD. Why not my ZTE. Can anyone help?? PLEASE?!?!?

ZTE Avail and a new battery

Currently I am using an extended battery just to be safe. I ordered it online from mpj for a try when I bought the phone. Thought my original case of ZTE Avail no longer fits, but it actually slim as the stock. Battery life wasnt good at first, much better after several full recharge cycles (is manage to last around 2 hrs longer). My only problem for now is that the original case is a little brittle right by the volume and power buttons:/

ZTE Avid-4G LTE Metro PCS new phone

ZTE's Avid 4G features a 5-megapixel camera on the back (VGA on the front), the ability to turn into a mobile hotspot with a few extra bucks per month and, naturally, LTE connectivity. For the relatively small amount of $149, and without any contracts attached, it wouldn't surprise us if the new Wireless for All smartphone on the block ends up gift wrapped in some places come next week's festivities. Speaking of which, folks interested can snag the Avid 4G now from the carrier's site, otherwise a quick trip to the nearest MetroPCS retail store should suffice.
To be honest,this is the best ZTE phone with Metro PCS
