Locked out, hard reset needed

I got locked out of my Commando and unfortunately don't know my security pattern or any of my google information. Wondering if anyone knows how to reset the phone just using the physical buttons like other Android phones. Thanks a bunch.

Hold the power button and home button, you will have to do a factory reset which will erase the information not linked to your g-mail.

@commandopro - the home button on this phone is not a physical button so it is impossible to press until the phone is on and booted up. not sure what the hard reset sequence is but home+power doesn't work on mine

If you continue to enter the wrong password incorrectly, it will eventually reset the phone and erase everything, no hardware master reset found as of yet..

The only fix is to get Verizon or who ever to warranty replace the phone if you get locked out and cant remember your gmail account. Thats the only way! Stupid I know.
