"Erase all content" means all of YOUR content, including all applications you have downloaded and all the data for those applications and all the data for Apple applications (i.e. Mail, Photos, Calendar, Safari, etc.) will not be completely removed from the device, they still remain on your iPhone and can be easily recovered by some iPhone data recovery.
Using iTunes to sync photos from computer to iPhone will sometimes delete the existing photos on iPhone. Therefore, I find it necessary to share my easy way to handle this issue.
1. Open FonePaw iOS Transfer and connect iPhone to computer.
2. Choose "Photos" and click "Add" to move photos from PC to iPhone. Here you don't need to worry about the Apple ID since you don't need it to sync photos. So there will be no erasing risk.
3. You can create new albums before moving photos to your iPhone by right-clicking on the left sidebar under "Photos".
How to Transfer Photos: Windows Vista/7 Users
If you have Windows 7 or Vista, there are two easy ways to transfer your photos directly to your desired folder or directory.
When your iPhone device is connected, click on the Start Menu, and then Control Panel. Click Hardware and Sound. Select AutoPlay, scroll down to find where your iPhone device is listed, open the drop-down menu, and select "Ask me every time."
Step 1 - Connect your iPhone device
If you enabled the AutoPlay behavior using the method described above, you can skip this step, because your iPhone is already plugged in. If not, connect your device using the appropriate USB cable that your phone came with.
Step 2 - Import Pictures and Video
The AutoPlay prompt should appear with your device type listed at the top. Click the first link that says "Import Pictures and Video."
If for some reason the AutoPlay prompt did not appear, go to Start, then Computer, then right click on the icon for your iPhone device and select "Import pictures and video" from the context menu that appears.
Step 3 - Choose a directory, and import
Before you click Import, go to Import Settings, and select the "Import to" field to select the destination you want your photos to transfer to. By default, they will transfer to your My Pictures folder. You can also select the "Always erase from device after copying" option, though this is, as always, optional.
Click OK, then click Import, and your photos will be transferred to their designated directory.
If you don't want to mess with AutoPlay, you can find and transfer your photos manually using Windows Explorer.
Step 1 - Connect your iPhone device Step 2 - Click Start, then Computer
This should take you to a Windows Explorer page that lists your hard disk drive(s), and devices with removable storage. If connected properly, your iPhone device will register as a device with removable storage, and you will see the icon for it listed below this header.
Step 3 - Double-click your device's logo in Windows Explorer
Double-clicking your device will open it up as a directory, full of folders and sub-folders that store all of your phone's content.
Step 4 - Open your camera folder
Your camera folder should be located in [Your iPhone Device]\Internal Storage\DCIM\100APPLE. This means once you're in your iPhone's directory, click on the Internal Storage folder, then the DCIM folder, then the 100APPLE folder.
Step 5 - Transfer your photos
You can import your device's photos by selecting the ones you want, or pressing Ctrl+A to select them all, and dragging them onto your desktop. Or, you can hit Ctrl+C to copy the photos, and then hit Ctrl+V in the folder you want to copy them into.
Ok, I'm using my iphone 4 running 7.1.0 as my guide on this one, so I must not be using all the correct headings, but this should be close. Go to "settings->general->reset->Erase all content and settings". That should erase all personal data, contacts, songs, photos, etc... And reset all of the settings to factory default. If you think you may want to reverse this, or if you're planning on upgrading to a newer generation of iPhone and want to transfer your data then be sure you sync your phone with iTunes before doing this. Let me know if that does not work, there is another way to do it but it will require you to update to the latests version of iOS that your device can run, which will erase your jailbreak if you've installed one (not to be confused with re-lock your phone, if you paid to get your phone factory unlocked, and that does not mean a sim interposer, your phone should remain unlocked, no matter if you update iOS).
So which kind of phone are you using?
If you are using an iPhone, I can help you figure it out.
