Hello! Thank you for your question. I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. Please try the following fix:

1. Turn off your phone by pressing & holding the Power button and slide down to power off. (If needed, press & hold Power button for about 10 seconds until it powers off.)

2. Then press & keep holding the Power button until the phone vibrates, then release it.

3. Right away, press & keep holding the Volume Down button until the exclamation point "!" appears on the screen , then release it.

4. Press & release the following buttons below once in exact order:

- Volume Up button
- Volume Down button
- Power button
- Volume Down button

5. The phone will start to reset.

6. Wait a bit, and it should let you re-set up the phone fresh.

If needed, you can watch the instructions video at the website below:
