http://www.informalgadget.com *How to do a factory reset and erase everything from your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch, without using a PC or Mac. No iTunes required, only your iOS Apple device.

This is good if you want to sell or return your Apple device and don't want to hand over all your personal information, you can just easily wipe your personal data without iTunes on a computer.

Settings - General - Reset - Erase All - Content and Settings

The same process works for all iPad's, iPhone's and iPod Touches. Tip: Make sure your iPad is plugged into a power source while erasing. When you opt to "Erase All Content and Settings," the process can take up to several hours. The time this process takes will vary by device: Devices that support hardware encryption: Erases user settings and information by removing the encryption key to the data. This process takes just a few minutes. Devices that overwrite memory: Overwrites user settings and information, writing a series of ones to the data partition. This process can take several hours, depending on the storage capacity of your iPhone or iPod touch. During this time, the device displays the Apple logo and a progress bar.

iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad, and iPod touch 3rd and 4th gen support hardware encryption.
