    I am getting ready to sell my iphone 3g and I am looking to get rid of all traces of my bank/various bills off my phone.

    Would using iwipe or panicroom help, or will erase all content and settings be enough?

    Thanks :)

    Restore is not enough

    Unless you use an application such as iwipe people can extract data even after a restore. I know I did a complete restore and imaged the phone and was able to locate pictures and files, iwipe is a good choice as it works I've tested that as well. Restore is totally useless for security.

    i understand why you would be concerned, but i would bet that the majority of people who would be interested in purchasing your phone would not have the slightest clue how to do that.
