    I would recommend you doing a compelete factory reset by just restoring to 4.0 and not syncing it to iTunes. This way the Phone does not have any details of you.

    Click restore in iTunes.

    Have you tried getting a case for it? To stop the antennagate problem?

    Why don't you get Zagg sides coverage for $10? it works like a charm (no more antenna issues) and best of all it is imperceptible with no need to use ugly bulky cases

    NO that's not what we meant by restore
    Connect the iPhone to iTunes and click on Restore (don't restore from a backup)
