    Hi, I am prepping my device for sale but I am stuck. It is a USA Factory Unlocked iPhone 4 model. I want to restore and clear out my personal info but I believe it will be stuck at the dreadful 'Plug Into iTunes' screen afterwards. The problem is I LOST the AT&T micro sim that it originally came with. I don't think the T-Mobile SIM is gonna activate it. Is there anyway I can avoid this? I greatly appreciate your help!!

    IF its Factory unlocked then any sim should be able to activate it, i have a factory unlocked myself and have been able to activate without my official carrier sim :cool:

    Update - Thanks!! It worked flawlessly, you're a lifesaver. :)

    Does anyone have tips for selling expensive devices/cellphones on eBay? I'm an avid seller with over 150+ feedback, PayPal verified, and US seller but have never sold anything over $500.00. I'm a little worried.

    Don't sell to buyers in high risk countries (Nigeria etc.). Only sell you buyers with 20+ 100% positive feedback. Complete the transaction through eBay. If the deal seems to good to be true it probably is. Don't fall for a PayPal scam. Take pictures of the item just before shipment in shipping packaging as proof it was sent in good condition.
