    hey there. i am selling my current iphone on ebay. and it is a 2g and i am going to buy a new 3g one. I want to completely clear the whole phone for the new person that is buying it, what is the best way to do that? Also I want to backup all my phone numbers, music, data etc. What is the most efficant way to back everything up so i can transfer it onto my new 3g model? btw i am a mac user. Thanks

    I did a restore and took out the SIM card on my v1 iPhone and made sure I did a back-up on it before the restore. Sold it on CL for $475, letting the new owner know that the SIM card did not come with the iPhone, and had already bought the 3G iPhone and transferred all my data, music, video, TV shows and podcasts from my Mac Pro in a matter of minutes when I activated my new iPhone...:cool:

    OK, I'm sorry, but I didn't see anything in your original post about you iPhone being JB'd. I sold one on CL for $475 and one on EB for $400, and neither was JB'd, sorry I'm unable to help...:eek:
