    alright well i finally upgraded from 2g to 3GS, and i was considering selling the 2g on ebay or something but whats the best way to do it?

    i am currently doing the secure erase(the 1 hour thing), should i just leave it at that screen(plug into itunes screen)

    I should remove the SIM and just list it as no SIM right?

    any tips, advice, or methods to getting the most i can for it would be greatly appreciated i just wanna make sure i do this the best way possible.

    I have the same question. I'm hearing mixed feedback as to whether I should insert my sim and connect to itunes before shipping out my device to the buyer on ebay. Since I removed my sim before finishing the restore, the iphone is now asking for a valid sim and a connection to itunes. Is this the right place for the person inheriting my old phone?

    can't really say what to do for secure erase

    BUT, if you sell it on craigslist, you should fetch around 200 for 8 gig and 250~300 for 16 gig depending on how clean it is

    Cheap and on ebay :p Leave it on the screen and list it as no sim (unless it's a special iPhone sim. I don't know the "go" with iPhone sims)

    Why can't we leave the Sim card in though?

    RedSn0w? I thought UltraSn0w was to be the unlock?
