Hi ,
My name is***** am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.
I will be glad to assist you with this.
The best option will be to use a secure remote screen connection to troubleshoot the issue, this will require downloading a screen connect app to get us started. Will that be okay?
You can reply to me here by typing in the box below please.

no just ***** *****
Tech Support Specialist: Randy Computer Tech, Computer Support Specialist replied 10 months ago
Okay, it looks like the only option will be to try a factory reset
With the device turned off, press and hold the Volume Up and Power buttons until the ZTE logo screen appears, then release.
Press the Volume down button to highlight wipe data/factory reset.
Press the Power button to select.
Press the Volume down button repeatedly until Yes -- delete all user data is highlighted.
Press the Power button to select.
Wait as the device resets.

Hello,

It looks like you have tried a number of things here with no resolution. What I would suggest is that you bring the phone into the shop which provides your phone service. They should be able to resolve this for you there. Regardless of where you bought the phone go to the local shop who you pay for phone service for example if you have ATT go to the ATT store. I think that is your best bet at this point.

Hope that helps, thank you.

-Chris

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
