how to wipe the phone properly and all its contents without the possibility of recovery?

1- Remove the sdcard.
2- Encrypt the phone with a long random password (if it's encrypted change the password to a long random one).
3- Settings->Backup and Reset->Factory reset
4- Forget the password.
5- Optional: from recovery wipe all possible partitions

I you want to securely delete the data from the sdcard use a computer with secure-delete, wipe or any other secure deleting tool.
If you don't trust android encryption, then you need to find a way to run (in the android device) a trusted tool like the ones I suggested for wiping the sdcard.
