    I just upgraded to the new 3G iPhone and am selling my orig iPhone.

    Can someone please let me know how to erase all contacts and music?

    Two ways that I know of.

    1. On the phone. Settings > General > Reset > Erase all content and settings.

    2. Do a restore on through iTunes. When prompted, choose to setup as a new phone instead of from a backup.

    Resetting iPhone
    Reset all settings: Choose General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information, such as your contacts and
    calendars, and media, such as your songs and videos, are not deleted.
    Erase all content and settings: Connect iPhone to your computer or a power adapter.
    Choose General > Reset and tap “Erase All Content and Settings.”
    This feature resets all settings to their defaults and permanently removes all your
    information and media on your iPhone by overwriting the data stored on iPhone.
    Important: You can’t use iPhone while data is being overwritten. This can take one to
    four hours or more, depending on the storage capacity of your iPhone.
