You can read about it in the manual

So, plug your phone into a wall outlet, then Settings>General>Reset>Erase All Content & Settings. When finished, your phone should look just like it did when first taken out of the box, with nothing but the OS on it. Conversely, you can connect it to iTunes & restore it as a "New" device. Just don't sync after you restore as new.MacBook Pro
Currently Being ModeratedDec 27, 2010 2:49 PM (in response to sorceress34)You have two options.
On the iPhone go to Settings > General > Reset and select Erase All Content and Settings. This is a secure erase.
Or you can restore the iPhone with iTunes as a new iPhone or not from the iPhone's backup which is not a secure erase. MacBook Pro 15" Intel Core 2 Duo/2.53GHz/4GB RAM/500GB HD, Mac OS X (10.6.5), iPod w/Video 30GB, iPhone 4 32GB
