    So as the title states I'm selling my iPhone 4 and it is running iOS 5. I have a problem, how do i erase everything without being brought to the set up page when the procedure is done? i can ether restore or go to settings and go to erase all content and settings. but i want it in a state where the phone is still operable just with no personal info, settings or content.

    Just restore all contents and settings, I did this with my iPad 2 I sold on eBay last week. The buyer should be able to do the initial setup themselves.

    You most likely won't be able to unless you set it up as a new device man

    Just do erase and restore then plug in to iTunes but untick automatic sync, so it will activate!
