    So I'm about to sell an iphone. How do I erase all the data on the phone and later on get all the data back on a new iphone?

    You should really copy the data before erasing.

    make a backup in itunes, restore it to the new phone.

    ONLY after verifying the backup works on the new phone:
    - reset old phone
    - fill the phone's whole memory with junk (mp3s, images)
    - reset again

    this ensures all memory in the old phone has been overwritten

    A quick google came up with this, not sure how good it is though seems to be what you're looking for. I hope you bought a proper phone with Android on it this time, I had to put in the expected Apple Vs Android jibe :laugh:
