    You can't undo. Restore the phone you mistakenly synced with the wrong computer/account from the last backup made of it before you did that.

    You can try restoring from the backup created at the beginning of the sync process if you haven't synced again.  (If you have, the earlier backup is overwritten).  To do this, before connecting your phone, open iTunes, go to Preferences and on the Devices tab check "Prevent...from syncing automatically".  Then connect your phone, when it appears in iTunes on the left sidebar, right-click on its name and choose Restore from Backup.

    Go to Settings>Store>Apple ID, tap the ID shown, sign out, sign back in with the ID you want to use.

    Then anything that was on it is gone. Settings>General>Resets>Erase All Content and Settings. That will take it back to it's 'as new' state and you can start over.
