Contents
Your phone is designed to make it easy for you to access a wide variety of
content. For your protection, we want you to be aware that some applications
that you enable may involve the location of your phone being shared. For
applications available through Cricket, we offer privacy controls that let you
decide how an application may use the location of your phone and other
phones on your account. However, the Cricket privacy tools do not apply
to applications available outside of Cricket. Please review the terms and
conditions and the associated privacy policy for each location-based service
to learn how location information will be used and protected. In addition, your
Cricket phone may be used to access the Internet and to download, and/
or purchase goods, applications, and services from Cricket or elsewhere from
third parties. Cricket provides tools for you to control access to the Internet
and certain Internet content. These controls may not be available for certain
devices which bypass Cricket controls.

Installing a microSDHC card (not included)
The microSDHC card can be installed and removed while the phone is
powered on. Unmount the microSDHC card before removing or replacing it.
1. Remove the back cover.
2.Connect the charger to a standard AC wall outlet. If the
phone is on, you’ll see a charging icon, such as or ,
appear in the Status Bar.
3.Disconnect the charger when the battery is fully charged.
Note: If the battery is extremely low, you may be unable to power on the
phone even when it is being charged. In this case, try again after charging
the phone for at least 20 minutes. Contact customer service if you still cannot
power on the phone after prolonged charging.
2.Hold your microSDHC card with the metal contacts facing
down and slide it into the card slot.
Note: Some applications may require a microSDHC card
to work normally or may store certain data on it. Therefore,
it is recommended that you keep a microSDHC card

Extending the battery life
3.Press the back cover gently back into place until you hear a click.
Charging the battery
Active applications, screen brightness levels, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi usage, and
GPS functionality can drain your battery. You can follow the helpful tips below
to conserve your battery power:
• Reduce the screen backlight time.
Your phone’s battery should have enough power for the phone to turn on,
find a signal, and make a few calls. You should fully charge the battery as
soon as possible.
• Lower the screen brightness.
If the battery is low, there will be a pop-up message on the screen. As you
charge your phone, the screen will tell you the exact battery level each time
you wake up your phone.
• Disable the GPS function when not in use. Most applications using this
function will periodically query the GPS satellites for your current location;
each query drains your battery.
Note: To charge your ZTE Grand X 3, you must use the USB Type-C™
cable and connector that is included with your phone. The
ZTE Grand X 3 cannot be charged with a standard Micro
USB charger.
Powering your phone on/off
Warning! Use only ZTE-approved chargers and cables. The use of
unapproved accessories could damage your phone or cause
the battery to explode.

phone is to perform a factory data reset, which erases all your data.
Encryption provides additional protection in case your phone is stolen, and
may be required or recommended in some organizations. Consult your
system administrator before turning it on. In many cases the PIN or password
you set for encryption is controlled by the system administrator.
Before turning on encryption, prepare as follows:
•Set a lock screen PIN or password.
•Charge the battery.
• Tap None to disable screen lock protection.

FOR YOUR SAFETY
This phone is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission
limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal
Communications Commission of the United States, Industry Canada
of Canada.
During SAR testing, this device was set to transmit at its highest certified power
level in all tested frequency bands, and placed in positions that simulate RF
exposure in usage against the head with no separation, and near the body
with the separation of 10 mm. Although the SAR is determined at the highest
certified power level, the actual SAR level of the device while operating can
be well below the maximum value. This is because the phone is designed to
operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to reach
the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base station antenna,
the lower the power output.
The exposure standard for wireless devices employs a unit of measurement
known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC
and Industry Canada is 1.6 W/kg.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model phone with
all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure
guidelines. SAR information on this model phone is on file with the FCC and
can be found under the Display Grant section of www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid
after searching on FCC ID: SRQ-Z959.
For this device, the highest reported SAR value for usage against the head is
0.75 W/kg, for usage near the body is 0.95 W/kg.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and
at various positions, they all meet the government requirements.
SAR compliance for body-worn operation is based on a separation distance
of 0.4 inches (10 mm) between the unit and the human body. Carry this
FOR YOUR SAFETY
107
device at least 0.4 inches (10 mm) away from your body to ensure RF
exposure level compliant or lower to the reported level. To support body-worn
operation, choose the belt clips or holsters, which do not contain metallic
components, to maintain a separation of 0.4 inches (10 mm) between this
device and your body.
RF exposure compliance with any body-worn accessory, which contains
metal, was not tested and certified, and use such body-worn accessory
should be avoided.
FCC compliance
This mobile phone complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is
subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful
interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired operation.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a
Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are
designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in
a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate
radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with
the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off
and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or
more of the following measures:
•Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
•Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Caution: Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the
manufacturer could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
Hearing aid compatibility (HAC) regulations for
mobile phones
In 2003, the FCC adopted rules to make digital wireless telephones
compatible with hearing aids and cochlear implants. Although analog
wireless phones do not usually cause interference with hearing aids or
cochlear implants, digital wireless phones sometimes do because of
electromagnetic energy emitted by the phone’s antenna, backlight, or other
components. Your phone is compliant with FCC HAC regulations
(ANSI C63.19-2011).
While some wireless phones are used near some hearing devices (hearing
aids and cochlear implants), users may detect a buzzing, humming, or
whining noise. Some hearing devices are more immune than others to this
interference noise, and phones also vary in the amount of interference they
generate. The wireless telephone industry has developed ratings for some
of their mobile phones to assist hearing device users in finding phones that
may be compatible with their hearing devices. Not all phones have been
rated. Phones that have been rated have a label on the box. These ratings are
not guaranteed. Results will vary, depending on the level of immunity of your
hearing device and the degree of your hearing loss. If your hearing device
happens to be vulnerable to interference, you may not be able to use a rated
phone successfully. Trying out the phone with your hearing device is the best
way to evaluate it for your personal needs.
•Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
This phone has been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for some of
the wireless technologies that it uses. However, there may be some newer
wireless technologies used in this phone that have not been tested yet for
use with hearing aids. It is important to try the different features of this phone
108
FOR YOUR SAFETY
•Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
FOR YOUR SAFETY
109
thoroughly and in different locations, using your hearing aid or cochlear
implant, to determine if you hear any interfering noise. Consult your service
provider or the manufacturer of this phone for information on hearing aid
compatibility. If you have questions about return or exchange policies, consult
your service provider or phone retailer.
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to
generate less interference with hearing devices than phones that are not
labeled. M4 is the better/higher of the two ratings.
T-Ratings: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to
be more usable with a hearing device’s telecoil (“T Switch” or “Telephone
Switch”) than unrated phones. T4 is the better/higher of the two ratings. (Note
that not all hearing devices contain telecoils.)
Your Z959 has been tested for hearing aid device compatibility and has an
M4/T3 rating.
Hearing devices may also be measured for immunity to this type of
interference. Your hearing device manufacturer or hearing health professional
may help you find results for your hearing device.
For additional information about the FCC’s actions with regard to hearing
aid compatible wireless devices and other steps the FCC has taken to ensure
that individuals with disabilities have access to telecommunications services,
please go to www.fcc.gov/cgb/dro.

General statement on interference
Aircraft
Care must be taken when using the phone in close proximity to personal
medical devices, such as pacemakers and hearing aids. Please consult your
doctor and the device manufacturers to determine if the operation of your
phone may interfere with the operation of your medical devices.
Pacemakers
Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum separation of
15 cm be maintained between a mobile phone and a pacemaker to avoid
potential interference with the pacemaker. To achieve this, use the phone on
the opposite ear to your pacemaker and do not carry it in a breast pocket.
Interference in cars
Please note that because of possible interference with electronic equipment,
some vehicle manufacturers forbid the use of mobile phones in their vehicles
unless a hands-free kit with an external antenna is included in the installation.
Explosive environments
Hearing aids
People with hearing aids or other cochlear implants may experience
interfering noises when using wireless devices or when one is nearby. The level
of interference will depend on the type of hearing device and the distance
from the interference source. Increasing the separation between them may
reduce the interference. You may also consult your hearing aid manufacturer
to discuss alternatives.
Medical devices
Please consult your doctor and the device manufacturer to determine
if operation of your phone may interfere with the operation of your
medical device.
116

LIMITED WARRANTY
The following Consumer Limited Warranty terms are standard across all ZTE
products. Please consult your product’s user guide for additional limited
warranty terms which may be specific to your carrier and/or device.
Consumer Limited Warranty
ZTE (“Seller”) offers you a limited warranty that the enclosed product or
products (the “Product”) will be free from defects in material and workmanship
for a period that expires one year from the date of sale of the Product to you,
provided that you are the original end-user purchaser of the Product and
provided that your purchase was made from a supplier authorized by the
Seller. Transfer or resale of a Product will automatically terminate warranty
coverage with respect to that Product. This limited warranty is not transferable
to any third party, including but not limited to any subsequent purchaser or
owner of the Product. This limited warranty is applicable to end users in the
United States and Puerto Rico.
Seller will, at its sole and absolute discretion, either repair or replace a Product
(which unit may use refurbished parts of similar quality and functionality)
if found by Seller to be defective in material or workmanship, or if Seller
determines that it is unable to repair or replace such Product, Seller will refund
the purchase price for such Product, provided that the subject Product (i) is
returned to a Seller authorized service center within the one year warranty
period, and (ii) is accompanied by a proof of purchase in the form of a bill of
sale or receipted invoice which evidences that the subject Product is within
120
WARRANTY
the one year warranty period. After the one year warranty period, you must
pay all shipping, parts and labor charges. In the event that the product
is deemed un-repairable or has been removed from the list of products
supported by the Seller, you will only be liable for shipping and labor charges.
This limited warranty does not cover and is void with respect to the following:
(i) any Product which has been improperly installed, repaired, maintained
or modified; (ii) any Product which has been subjected to misuse (including
any Product used in conjunction with hardware electrically or mechanically
incompatible or used with accessories not approved by Seller), abuse,
accident, physical damage, abnormal operation, improper handling,
neglect, exposure to fire or liquid; (iii) any Product operated outside
published maximum ratings; (iv) cosmetic damage; (v) any Product on
which warranty stickers or Product serial numbers have been removed,
altered, or rendered illegible; (vi) cost of installation, removal or reinstallation;
(vii) signal reception problems (unless caused by defects in material and
workmanship); (viii) damage the result of fire, flood, acts of God or other
acts which are not the fault of Seller and which the Product is not specified
to tolerate, including damage caused by mishandling, shipping and blown
fuses; (ix) consumables (such as fuses); or (x) any Product which has been
opened, repaired, modified or altered by anyone other than Seller or a Seller
authorized service center.
USE ONLY SELLER APPROVED ACCESSORIES WITH SELLER PHONES. USE OF ANY
UNAUTHORIZED ACCESSORIES MAY BE DANGEROUS AND WILL INVALIDATE THE
PHONE WARRANTY IF SAID ACCESSORIES CAUSE DAMAGE OR A DEFECT TO THE
PHONE. SELLER SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS LIABILITY FOR ANY AND ALL DIRECT,
INDIRECT, SPECIAL, GENERAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, AGGRAVATED, INCIDENTAL
OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
SUCH DAMAGES, WHETHER FORESEEABLE OR UNFORESEEABLE OF ANY KIND
WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF PROFITS, UNANTICIPATED
BENEFITS OR REVENUE, ANTICIPATED PROFITS ARISING OUT OF USE OF OR
INABILITY TO USE ANY PRODUCT (FOR EXAMPLE, WASTED AIRTIME CHARGES DUE
TO THE MALFUNCTION OF A PRODUCT) OR CONTRIBUTION OR INDEMNITY IN
WARRANTY
121
RESPECT OF ANY CLAIM RELATED TO A PRODUCT. REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF
A DEFECTIVE PRODUCT OR REFUND OF THE PURCHASE PRICE RELATING TO A
DEFECTIVE PRODUCT, AS PROVIDED UNDER THIS WARRANTY, ARE YOUR SOLE AND
EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES FOR BREACH OF THE LIMITED WARRANTY, AND SUBJECT TO
THIS WARRANTY, THE PRODUCTS ARE APPROVED AND ACCEPTED BY YOU “AS IS”.
SELLER MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS OR CONDITIONS OF
ANY KIND, ORAL OR WRITTEN, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE,
WITH RESPECT TO THE PRODUCTS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY
IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR AGAINST INFRINGEMENT OR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY
OR CONDITION ARISING OUT OF TRADE USAGE OR OUT OF A COURSE OF
DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE. NO DEALER, DISTRIBUTOR, AGENT OR
EMPLOYEE IS AUTHORIZED TO MAKE ANY MODIFICATION OR ADDITION TO THIS
WARRANTY.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or
consequential damages, or allow limitations on how long an implied warranty
lasts, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This limited
warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights
which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
For warranty service information, please call the following telephone number:
1-877-817-1759, 1-212-444-0502 or return to the point of sale for the products.
