    I purchased a Verizon Razr at a yard sale and unfortunately I paid too much for this phone because it looked to be in good condition. Unfortunately I cannot figure out how to perform a factory reset. I followed the instructions on the Verizon website. The screen that I am seeing does not give me the option to do a factory reset.

    Please help me out. Thanks.

    Before even attempting Jeffrey's suggestion, I would call Verizon to verify the phone isn't blacklisted. Simply by being at a yard sale, and being locked, it's very possible the phone is stolen.

    The ESN was checked and the phone is clean and clear!

    Thanks Jeff for that video. It worked perfectly!
