    How to get rid of message mobile network not available

    I have purchased, and activated, a ZTE Model z233vl flip phone, and would like to de-activat​e the sounds, as well as download more wallpapers​. The problem is that the "home page" displays NO settings, at all. All that my screen shows is the time, date, "ente​r PIN", emergency call, and a background​, showing a boating dock. HOW do I make the rest of the functions appear, on the screen?

    This manual and/or the phone are terrible. When activating my account with tracfone it offered to set up security. That required entering my email. There is no way to enter any characters other than letters and numbers. Symbols don't seem to be available. And the manual gives no help on the matter. I have the printed manual which came with the phone and it is just the same.
