Erase phone data permanently

I search in vain so far on Internet for definitive answer to my question: How do you erase your mobile phone data (numbers, messages, etc....) permanently so your data cannot be recovered with utilities such as Mobile Phone SMS Recovery.

There is (manufacturers) instruction from Wireless Recyling (Erase Cell Phone Data with ReCellular's Data Eraser) that suppose to erase data in your mobile phone, but it doesn't explicit state that the data are erased permanently or not.

Without a definitive answer to this question, the only thing that one can be sure to safeguard the info is to completely destroy the SIM and the phone itself.

A person with suitable software could pull back fragments of deleted data. Although I dont see this being carried out by anyone finding your handset if you lost it.

I agree that the only way to sop this is to destroy the handset if you feel you have delicate data on your handset you never want to be seen.
