When your iPhone is connected to iTunes, press the restore button. All content on your iPhone will be erased and when that's done you will be given the choice to set it up from the latest backup or as a new phone. Choose the new phone option. When the process is complete you will have an activated iPhone with nothing but the stock apps. You can then add whatever apps and other content you choose from your purchased list.
