    I want to trade in my Huawei Nexus 6p, but the screen is now totally dead. The phone still has power, as it still vibrates and I get incoming calls (but unable to answer them). Is there a way to use a USB cable, connect the phone to my iMac, and control (erase) the phone from the computer?

    Thank you!

    Nope. Unless you can unlock the device, you can't do much on a computer. If it's still powering on and has an active data connection, though, you can do a remote wipe via your Google account.

    Welcome to Android Central! I agree with SpookDroid -- do a remote wipe using Find My Device: https://support.google.com/accounts/.../6160491?hl=en
