IPhone :: Erase All Content And Settings / Secure Erase?

Sep 29, 2009

Does "Erase All Content And Settings" do a secure erase? If yes, what type?Random characters or zeros? And does it do it once or 3x, 7x? It takes about 2 hours to erase a 16Gb iPhone 3G so I am thinking it probably is a secure erase and perhaps it's doing 3x. I would think zero'ing out or random'ing out the data would take much less than 2 hours for one go-around since to zero out 200 Gb on a hard drive on a Mac only takes 40 minutes.

IPhone 3GS :: Way To Erase All Content And Settings?

Oct 9, 2009

What exactly does this do? Does it just pretty much wipe ALL your data off your phone? Is this the most secure way of deleting everything? Reason I ask is because even though I don't want to I might plan on selling my 16GB/3G to cover the cost of my 3Gs. If I do this will the person that bought it be able to use it as an iPod touch or phone/jailbreak or whatever and unlock? I am clueless about this option please help me and fill me in.

IPhone :: Erase All Content And Settings?

Apr 3, 2012

In Settings > General > Reset, when you tap on Erase All Content and Settings, can you stop it once it starts?  

I'm hoping the answer is "no"; that it carries on and will only stop once it has erased EVERYTHING securely from the iPhone.

IPhone :: Erase All Content And Settings

Jul 6, 2012

I currently have a 16g iphone 4s. I am swapping phones with my brother, and went to wipe the phone with the built in reset from settings. "Erase All Content and Settings". I clicked it and it immediately went to the "loading" screen where it is just a black screen with the white cirle, continuously circling. Now ive done this before and it took only a few minutes to reset. But this time around, i am currently going on 3 hours of it "Resetting".is there a shortcut, should i open phone up and unplug battery? let it die out? or wait it out and keep it plugged in??

Apr 28, 2012

Friend of my husbands gave my daughter an iphone 4 with a cracked screen.  This is good enough for the daughter who would probably crack her screen soon.  We WANT to restore it and not have any old data.  She purchased an ATT Go phone sim card, so that she can use it with the phone.  it works, says it's activated, but still won't do anything without the passcode.  Isn't there a hardware reset or something?
