    Just a quick question if anyone has sold an iPhone before. I dropped mine (iPhone 4) and the front cracked and decided to pay the ETF with AT&T and put it up for sale. So as it stands, the contract is cancelled and I have reset the phone to factory defaults and erased all data.

    When I sell this, is there any issue with leaving the SIM card in? I wouldn't think so, but just want to make sure I'm not exposing myself to any risk.

    Although I can't identify why leaving the SIM in would be a bad thing, I also can't see where it's of any value to a buyer. Just to be safe I would take it out.

    The sim is tied to your acct.
    Once the acct is cxl'd the sim is dead.
    That sim can be activated again and used in another phone until your iP4s arrives.
    I always keep mine.
