    When you restore as a new phone does it need to download a fresh copy of iOS 6? If have a really slow internet connection at home so just wanted to know before I do this. Thanks.

    Yes, unless you've already downloaded the firmware for that device before.

    You can do it via the erase all content and settings option on your device. This required no new download.

    This. iTunes would make you update first to the new iOS version.
