3. Press both Volume buttons down together to show the Android recovery menu.
4. Use volume buttons to scroll up or down in this menu. Highlight "wipe data/factory reset"
5. Tap Power button hard key to confirm the selection.
6. Handset will ask you to "Confirm wipe of all user data"
7. Select "Yes -- delete all user data"
8. Tap Power button hard key to confirm the selection and start wipeout of phone, handset will begin to format handset showing progress with multiple lines of ellipses (....)
9. Handset may take from 5-20 minutes to format.
10. When format is complete, Tap Power button when prompted to reboot (Reboot system now will be highlighted)
11. You will see either an open box and the green android graphic when handset is rebooting (or the red DROID eye graphic).

Doesn't matter. It was less than a year ago, but I'm deploying overseas sooner than they will be able to get me a replacement
