I was given a hard time for asking a similar question for another device, so I have to assume that this is legit, and the device was not obtained by dubious means??
Switch the phone off, and wait for it to give the little vibrate it does to completely power off.
Hold volume up and press the home key whilst pressing these hold the power button down. Your phone will boot into the Bootloader menu. Select recovery and then select Master Data Wipe / Factory reset (something like that).
You will loose everything on the phone, but it will reset.
