    I'm looking to sell my iPhone 4S. It's in great condition and is jailbroken with the Evasion ios 6 jailbreak. I figure I can sell it for more since the jailbreak can be viewed by some as very valuable. My questions are -
    1) how do I make sure all my info is off the phone considering I can't clean restore the phone?
    2) would the buyer be able to change the number to the phone easily?
    3) how much is a jailbroken iPhone 4S go for, I see $300-400 on Craigslist.

    I believe restoring to factory setting and updating will allow you to sell it for more and quicker. You will find more people that want a non-jailbroken iPhone than want a jailbroken iPhone. To answer your questions.

    1. Delete all photos, text messages, phone calls, apps with personal data. Remove all e-mail accounts, log out of iTunes & App Stores. Remove Apple ID from iCloud, iMessage, Factime. This is off the top of my head, might have missed something.

    2. If the phone is GSM, the phone number is tied to the sim card, not the phone. If the phone is CDMA, you have to contact the carrier to clear the ESN off your phone line.

    3. What's the storage capacity? Which Carrier? Original box, accessories included?

    Ilex rat is a tweak that will wipe and keep jailbreak. Google it. Yeah from ebay I found most people want stock. They don't want to go through the hassle of jailbreak.
