    Heres the deal, i have a Ascend that is mine, but it's got a cracked screen.
    My friend found another ascend one drunken night on the way home that is in perfect condition. after attempting to wait for owner to call to no avail, and because the lock screen was passworded, the old owner can not be found so im taking ownership :) now my question is, after a hard reset, what do i need to do to transfer my carrier settings over so i can use the good, non-cracked phone as my own. i dont care about app data or contacts ect... i just want to be able to use the phone on my account. Cricket is my carrier btw if it helps

    If it's been reset to factory, then dialing #228 should get you to an activation prompt. On MetroPCS, you can activate, transfer number to another phone, etc by dialing *228.

    but if he call the phone in as lost or stolen, the phone has been deactivated for good and can only be used for parts.
