    Default How to erase/delete all the contacts and private info?
    I am selling my iPhone and need to delete/erase all the private info and all the contacts.

    Can be done?
    What's the best way?

    TIA

    BTW: I looked all over for the info, but nothing so far.

    Do a restore, but don't "restore from backup" afterwards through iTunes. Or are you looking to do some sort of secure delete on it?
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

    Mine is unlocked, JB with iLiberty.
    I would love to leave everything as is with all the progs and Installer & Cydia etc.

    I would be happy just to get rid off ALL my contact/phone info.

    This thing doesn't have delete all command anywhere (at least i didn't find it)
    (another reason I am switching to Eten X600)

    Thanks man for trying to help.

    It looks I just managed to delete at least all my contacts.
    I used the iPhone PC Suite (deleted one by one, but it was easier then iPhone)

    Still wonder if there are some files I should delete as well.
    Where, what and how.

    TIA
