    Just recover your iPhone when it is attached to iTunes and DO NOT restore from backup.

    You plug it to itunes and hit restore.
    When it asks you setup as new.

    Wouldn't it also be prudent to delete any old stored iPhone backups? That info is probably in there as well.

    The backups are on the computer, not saved in the iphone.
