Hook it to iTunes wait until iTunes sees your phone. You then click the restore button. You will be asked if you want to restore to back up or New phone. Choose New phone and it will be returned to factory state...Mark

See and thats what I had thought but I don't get an option. I will have to try again but, I am pretty sure that it will not let me.

It should do it right after the iPhone finishes the restore and reboots. Right after it comes back up, it should go through the "Setup your iPhone" screens and ask you if you want to restore from "Your iPhone's Backup - 00/00/00" or set up as new.
