Smile ZTE F160 original firmware


I am the owner of the ZTE F160 phone, which I acquired from French Free telecom operator in 2013.

Having changed network operator since, I am looking to update this phone with the original and official ZTE firmware with French language, without overlay and Free customization.

Indeed, in the Free version of my phone that I currently have, I do not have the "favorites mode" option in the Settings tab > Connections > Network settings, and that prevents me from being able to choose between GSM and UMTS network (as in p78 of the user manual).

I live at the limit of 3G coverage area and I therefore do not have the possibility to configure my phone in a way it stays in 2G continuously. When I switch to manual network selection mode and I select the network of my current operator in 2G GSM, the phone is well set in 2G GSM mode but it stays in this mode a few minutes then switches back directly to 3G UMTS and to automatic network selection mode.

So I am looking for an executable to update the firmware of my ZTE F160 phone with the original and official ZTE firmware with French language, without overlay and Free customization.

Thank you again for your help,
