So I sat here for the last hour trying to get the above to work. It's not correct. Here is a verified working method:
After turning the phone on it will show the verizon boot up screen and then show a list of languages. Choose your language and then the next screen will show the activation screen. From there do the following:
1: Volume Up
2: Volume Down
3: Back Button
4: Home Button
That worked for me. The one above had 3 and 4 reversed and I added more detail of where to do it.
