    If I have an apple ID with email X, for example, then I want to wipe my iPhone clean, so restore to factory default, can I still using the same apple ID with email X but without restoring previous settings, etc?

    Basically start with fresh phone but without restoring.

    Thanks.

    yes, but if I do that, wouldn't the iPhone automatically just pull the restored data from the iCloud since it uses the same Apple ID?

    Thanks.

    No. Restore it as new and it won't pull your data. It'll give you a fresh device and you can choose what to add back in.

    It'll only ask if you want to restore. Otherwise, you can just set up as new.

    If you do as everyone including jc advised you will be fine using the same Apple ID you have now.
