    Upgrading to iPhone 5.

    Number the steps to do in order. Things such as iMessage, FaceTime, apple ID login, SIM card, factory reset and whatever else I may not be aware of.

    What is the proper and safe process of preparing my former iPhone 4 for sale?

    Thanks for your input.

    settings,general,reset, erase all content and settings

    then check again and manually delete anything that remained.

    That's it?

    I thought to destroy my SIM card before handing it over.

    After doing an Erase All, I restored mine as a new phone and then unplugged it before iTunes restarted it at the end. That way the buyer gets the same experience as setting up a new phone.
