  1. My husband bought me a zte quartz Z797C for my birthday last week, and I love the phone, but I CANNOT find a case for it or a cover or a otter box anywhere. Can you tell me where to find one. I don’t want anything to happen to my phone. Thank you so much.

    • I bought a leather carrying case for mine from eBay (the kind that can be clipped to a belt or a belt can be run through the inside edge of the holder. By the way, the phone came with a plastic cover that protects the back of the case. They are also available on eBay (just search by mfg and model number (ZTE Z797)
