    I thought someone mentioned touching the four corners of the screen clockwise starting at upper left. I think there also may have been another pattern, left right left right.

    On the language screen, use the black area below the last language and above the Emergency Call and Next buttons. Tap upper left, upper right, lower left, lower right then press volume up. Worked for me!

    Here's the video I found with the info:

    This is what worked for my verizon phone:

    Touch the Lower left corner on screen right above emergency call fast: Lower Right, Lower Left, Lower Right, Volume Up then next.
