To sell my Verizon iPhone 4S, do I remove a SIM card?

I am selling my Verizon iPhone 4S. Do I need to remove a SIM card or anything? I do see there is a SIM slot.

Yes, it has all your info in it. You will need it for your new phone if you are staying with Verizon.

the SIM in the 4S is for international roaming and not used for domestic CDMA use. if you plan on getting a 5, 5C or 5S it will come with a new nano SIM anyways which you will need in order to get LTE on your new verizon device.

in short, yes remove it as it will be deactivated and cannot be reused for the next person. you wont need it either, since it cant be used in your next device.
