I need to reset my 3GS iPhone to factory defaults (I will be doing this to five different phones ; does that matter?). Can some one direct me to the spot to do that? Thanks.

    Settings --> General --> Reset --> Erase All Content and Settings

    It helps to read the manual from time to time.

    On each phone: Settings>General>Reset>Erase All Content & Settings. Since these are 3GS's, that should take but a minute or two. They will all be returned to a state just like they first came out of the box. All data secured erased & nothing but the OS on each one.

    Thanks for the replies. I am a procurement guy. The phones are not mine and the users turned them back in with NO documentation and a claim that all data had been wiped out. I gave two of the phones to my kids (17 & 18) and they found all sorts of pictures and other "data" on a "scrubbed" phone. This is why I asked how to reset to factory settings.
