So I'm needing to clean off my iPhone 4 to give it to its new buyer.... is it safe to just use the "Erase all content and settings" feature from the Settings/General area? Will that make my info safe?

Anything else I need to do?

Thanks!

yep, safe. Your data on the iPhone is encrypted, and performing "Erase all content and settings" removes the encryption key. Basically, that means the data is irrecoverable.
