When your phone goes on the frets and you are told to do a 'factory reset' or to 'format' your Hawaii Ascend Mmes from Cricket or, then follow these directions.
WARNING! These steps will erase all data on your phone's internal memory such as contacts saved to phone, installed applications, call logs, text logs and any customized settings will be returned to default.
NOTE: Doing a factory reset will not erase contacts stored to your gmail account or sad memory card, but you will have to login in to your gmail account from your Hawaii Ascend Mmes again and re sync all contacts. If you forgot your pin or pattern this will remove and reset to default setting which is to not ask for one.
