    I'm considering, like many of you, selling my current iPhone on Ebay and using something basic/cheap until the 2nd Generation iPhone comes out. But I have a question for anyone who has/is doing this currently...

    What did you "do" with AT&T to get this done? What phone are you using in the mean time? How did you get everything set up?

    Any help at all would be much appreciated!

    FYI - I'm about 6 months into a 2 year contract.

    I'm thinking about it as well, except that T-Mobile doesn't have a 3G network yet so I'd be stuck without a phone for a while.

    So do you sell your iPhone without a sim card?

    Or swap it out with one that comes in a Go Phone?

    Sorry I'm pretty new at this stuff....

    So if I restore my iPhone, pull the SIM card and sell it on Ebay, I can just get a cheap GoPhone, put the SIM card in it, still use it on AT&T, and nothing changes? Then buy the "new" 3G iPhone, put the SIM card back in it, and be done??

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Before you send off your iPhone to eBay have a look at this.
    To be sure, also do a Settings>General>Reset on your iPhone.

    That's scary.

    Could you jailbreak, then SSH into the phone and delete the settings?

    I don't see why not. As long as the raw data is available to view via ssh it should be possible to wipe it out as well.
