    Default resetting an iPhone back to exact factory settings?
    Is there a way to do this? I noticed that when I updated from 1.1.1 to 1.1.4 my roms for NES were still on the phone, along with misc other folders that were from older apps that were installed at one time on the 1.1.1 firmware.

    A friend of mine who also has an iphone just upgraded his firmware to 1.1.4 from 1.1.1 and had some sort of mod that changed the carrier logo from AT&T to custom text. Since the update, it still has the custom text, not an AT&T logo.

    This wouldn't be a big deal, but his audio jack stopped working and needs to bring it in for repair but he's afraid that they'll tell him tough luck. Is there a way to restore the phone, data and all, back to the way it was when he purchased it?

    I would actually like to do the same, then re-jailbreak it to get rid of useless junk that's eating up space.

    thanks in advance.

    Hi, I was wondering if I do this, will I loose all my contacts?

    Not if you sync your contacts to your computer first.
