    Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content & Settings.

     

    Turn off iMessage and Facetime before doing this.

    "Settings > iCloud > Delete Accout"

     

    NOT if you still have other devices.

    That just deletes the account and data on the device, not the account itself.

    Ah...just deletes the account on the device itself, nothing more, which as has been provided, you want to do.

     

    Paul's instructions are the correct way to go.
