    Hi Guys,
    I am wanting to get a 3GS cleared of all personal information, settings, apps etc.
    Can anyone tell me what I need to do to achieve this please ?
    Basically I want to sell it afterwards as close to as it was when it came out of the box .
    Thanks in advance ...
    Nobby.

    Thanks both,
    Localboy27 - I don't understand the iTunes option - I thought restore was for use when changing iPhones and perhaps getting a new phone set up like a previous one ! Shows what I know.
    I am paranoid about messing up my iTunes library etc so will try via handset first.
    Thanks both.
