Hey guys, I've been struggling for a while to find Windows 8 drivers for our beloved Skate, since I connected it to windows and it's not getting automatically recognized. Does any one know where to find them? Thanks!

Just install the ZTE Handset Driver. I'm on Windows 8 x64 and it works fine.

Once you overcome the different start menu - it's wonderful!

This. Also, you can use Start8 if you don't like the Metro UI. Set Start8 up properly and you'll never have to look at the new start menu again.

Thanks guys, i don't know what happened but I left it plugged in for a couple of hours and it finally installed the drivers itself. Cheers!

PS: PM me if you need help setting up a start menu for win8 ;)

Yes, Windows 8 is pretty amazing at installing (most of) the drivers itself, but it still has some flaws. Last time I checked, USB tethering and my printer refused to work with it.
