    Hi all,

    I just sold my iPhone to someone on Craigslist. I reset all settings, deleted my e-mail accounts, cleared out some contacts, but in general, left it the same. I didn't delete all contacts, do a restore without a back-up, delete photos, etc. I figure when she restores it, all that will be wiped out anyway.

    I really didn't have any information (so I think) in my phone that I am worried about, but now I'm second-guessing it. If all I used my phone for was e-mailing, calling, and as an iPod, should I worry, especially if this girl seemed totally clueless about using it? I just don't want my credit card stolen or my identify taken away haha.

    Please re-assure me!
