Keep in mind that after you do a full reset, you'll need to connect it to iTunes to get it to boot up again. That confuses the hell out of some people... They reset it, and go to turn it on, and it won't boot right up. Black screen until you connect it to iTunes.
If you're doing that, it would probably be a good opportunity to upgrade it to the latest firmware directly after you reset it. That will get you as up to date as possible. Upgrading to a new firmware will delete everything off of it as well, so do it when there's nothing on it. When you connect to iTunes after reset, it will tell you if there's new software available for it.
If you have any other questions, post em up.
