Your iPhone will return to factory settings as if you had a new iPhone.

And all your stuff will be synched back from the back up in iTunes. IF you had synced this particular phone before. Isn't that correct? – Per Wiklander Mar 10 '11 at 17:17
@Per Wikilander: Yes, if you "restore from backup" you may be able to put the info back on your iPhone that was on there last time your iPhone was synced properly. – Linuxmint Mar 10 '11 at 18:34
