Question about Apple iPhone 3G Black Smartphone
You can either go to settings -> general -> scroll to the bottom "set to default"
Here you can choose what to reset.
OR you can restore the firmware of the device (this will erase all data on it, music, videos, pictures, bookmarks, wifi-keys...)
To set your iPhone 3G back to factory settings, just connect it to itunes and wait for the device to appear. Click on the iphone and you should see the screen that tells you how much more space you have left etc.
In the middle of that screen you have the options to "search for updates" and for "restore" .
Click on restore and wait. (If you have never restored or updated your iPhone, itunes will download the most recent firmware from the internet, this may take a couple of minutes)
Once its done, the iphone will restart and reconnect to itunes.
Itunes will ask you if you want to restore (if you have any backups) or treat it as a new phone.
Select treat as a new phone and give it a new name. Now everything is back to factory settings and all media, settings and accounts are deleted.
