    Cricket ZTE Score Hard Reset / Factory Reset

    This is if you want to reset your phone back to factory settings, the way it was when you got it. This will erase everything on your phone.

    Thanks to dina for posting this in another thread:

    Power OFF the handset
    While OFF; Simultaneously press and hold the Volume Down, Camera, and
    the Power keys for 10 seconds.
    When the Android icon is displayed touch the Menu sensor key .
    Scroll with the Volume Down key to “wipe data/factory reset” and press the
    camera button.
    Scroll with Volume Down key to: “Yes -- delete all user data” and press the
    camera button.
    When Data wipe is completed the option “Reboot system now” is
    highlighted, press the camera key to reboot the device.

    Hi thanks for this. I'm pretty new at this, so... The guy at the store set it up when I bought it, so I wonder if I need the 3 numbers that the quick-start guides says I need, (MDN, MIN, CDMA system ID) which I don't have. I've looked in the phone and made a note of: THe phone number (MDN?) THe MIN and not sure where the CDMA sytem ID can be found, looked here:
    Cricket SIDs by market


    just in case, I made a note of most of the other numbers in that section of the phone. Here goes nothing!

    edit: well, factory reset appears to retain some things. Like those numbers... So my phone number and service is still maintained without further set-up. How are my photos on here?

    you don't need to worry about min mid etc, just dial *228 and let your phone go through the automated programming process. your phone will receive all that information during the 'over the air programming process'. factory default reset only resets the information on the phone itself and will not change your services in any way. that also means it won't change your sd card where the phone stores all the pictures automatically

    doing a factory reset is real simple. press both vol down + camera, while holding both down press the power button until your phone vibrates. and do not let off vol down or camera buttons, you can let off power though, after a minute or so you should see an android with an exclamation mark on your screen. press the menu key on the front of your phone. use vol up and down to scroll menu items and camera button to select, scroll down to factory reset, and select it with camera button. wait til it's done and select reboot now or whatever it is. if your phone does not reboot pull your battery and put it back in and press power button. remember it will take longer then normal since it has to rebuild dalvik and set everything up again. once your phone boots it's should work perfectly but in case it doesn't try dialing *228. this is all you gotta do to reset yer phone. I've done it 100 times and it works every time.
