    Hey guys.

    I've asked this question to Apple after a long wait time on the phone but I just want to make sure:

    I recently sold my iphone 3GS locally. It had some valuable personal information on it, so I restored it before hand.

    I basically sold it on the cheap because I lost the sim card tray. After I restored it, it was stuck on the "please insert valid sim to unlock" screen. Is the information wiped off the phone?

    I checked itunes and there is no backup or anything. No contacts or any of that other info got synced.

    Let me know. Thanks.

    Yeah, I think you should be ok. The sim card is the connection to AT&T. But the data exists upon the actual iPhone itself. Doing a wipe should clean it out.

    Anyone else confirm?
