    If you have Android Device Manager setup in the phone as a Device Administrator you can log into the Android Device Manager website from any computer and send a FDR command to the phone. If you already have a replacement phone, just make sure you select the correct phone to send the erase command to.

    Phone is no longer hooked up to the wireless account. So there is no internet and screen is blank. Only thing i can think of is when i power down and apply thumb to unlock home button and then somehow access the phone as a device from windows??

    Hmmm...when it's connected to a PC I think the only normal options are file transfer and photo transfer? I don't think you can get into the apps or Settings to do a factory reset that way.
