    Just a quick question about Wiping my iPhone
    before selling it.....

    i have an 8GB Jailbroken and unlocked iPhone,
    with AT&T contract.


    Should i remove the SIM card before wiping it clean
    or just wipe it clean with the SIM card in.....?

    THANKS for any advice

    I recommend making use of the included suede cloth. It removes fingerprints perfectly and is easy wipe.

    EDIT: Keep the SIM card in when wiping, unless there is dirt caught inside, then you might want to take that out too.

    I would manually delete all of the info on the phone, setup iTunes to NOT sync, and restore afterwards.

    I thought restoring the iphone clears all data?

    I just sold my iphone for $190 on craigslist and all I did was restore and remove sim.....is my personal info still on the phone?
