The iPhone is pretty good at cleaning up after itself but if you really want to look around, check out 'find' (Google man find)
find has literally hundreds of options, such as: name, type, size, modified or accesse time, user, permissions, etc and takes full advantage of wildcards.
Be careful with it. It's very powerful and will kill your iPhone if used wrong.
For me in your situation, I would restore. It's must faster and safer

I have to agree with Mes as well with restoring the phone back to factory settings and starting over. Its your safest bet especially if you don't remember what all has been added or modified.
