      Nice to see there is a half-way decent method of clearing the iPhone of personal data before re-selling it on, and thanks for mentioning my idea, let's hope Apple either read this site or have the very same idea up their sleeves, because we do know that with the release of the 2.0 fw there will also be a new version of itunes to compliment it...you never know.

      I haven't poked around that deeply in the iPhone's file structure, but I've poked around a bit and I'm pretty sure that the "just sync over a bunch large playlists to the device's capacity" method won't work.

      The iPhone has multiple partitions, some are available to the media files, some aren't. The contacts, call lists, sms history, safari bookmarks, etc, etc, all the private information you're worried about aren't located in an area that the music files would ever be allowed to write to in the first place. You'd almost have to make bogus contact lists and the like and sync them over to ensure things are wiped out.
