Hi there. Can someone please explain to me the difference(s) between the restore function in iTunes vs. the "erase and reset" function on the phone under settings/general/reset?

From what I can tell the restore function requires downloading the latest firmware from Apple in iTunes whereas the erase and reset takes approximately 1 hour to erase the phone (not sure why 1 hour for an 8 GB phone with no hard drive) and never requires downloading any software.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
