One option is to use the Phone Remote tool which can be found here:


This will allow you to take control of a phone and enter the key sequence required to do a factory reset as detailed in this link:


Hope this helps. If so, please rate the post.

Hi Brandon,

Would remote control work for a reset sequence? It is done a boot time before network connectivity is established, so I doubt it would work. But, I haven't tried myself.

It would not work for the reset sequence done at boot, but it would work to use Erase Configuration in the Settings menu.
