    okay, i'm selling my phone at 6:30pm (its 4:40 now)

    first, i'm unlocking it (no biggie)

    before i do that, how do i make sure ALL my information is GONE?

    second, i'll be without a phone for a few days, instead, can i buy something like an att GoPhone and put my sim card in there, or do i have to purchase minutes for it?

    i think thats pretty much it. Any help is much appreciated! :D

    Settings - General - Reset to clear everything

    and yes a GoPhone from WalMart or Target will work fine

    one more thing- hes putting it on tmobile to use it internationally, when i jailbreak/unlock, do i need to have his sim in and activate it? I've jailbroken plenty of iphones and ipod touches before but i've never had to unlock one so i'm not sure on the specifics like that.

    You can use all the existing stuff with the gophone.

    He doesn't need to have his sim in the phone for you to unlock it for his use. But iTunes will complain if it doesn't find *some* kind of sim in it so take the sim that you'll get with the gophone and put it in the iPhone. You don't need to activate (the sim) just give the phone something to teeth on while you do the unlocking process.
