Keep pressing volume up when you see the sony logo on boot screen.
Use the volume up and down buttons to navigate, power button to select.
How can I wipe the data without getting into the phone? It's never been rooted and if I can't get into the phone I can't root it.
PS, can we get rid of the video's on here they are so annoying
If you're not rooted, you obviously don't have a recovery... Flash a stock FTF file corresponding to the phone model you have. If you don't know how to do this, read the very first post of the General section (which I recommend you do anyway before asking questions, since they might already have been answered in there).
Tip: Flashing a stock firmware gives you the option to wipe all data, without root or recovery, without even starting Android.
