    When they get shipped to you from AT&T I understand the phones already have a SIM in them so I assume it is already programmed with your phone number from AT&T and tied to your account. All you have to do is activate it on iTunes.

    In order to sell the phone without opening the box what needs to be done? Or can't it be done? Do you have to open the box and remove the SIM before selling it?

    I am getting 2 3GS's and want to sell off 1 of them (my wife is happy with her 3G). I was hoping I wouldn't have to open the box and remove the SIM.

    Unless you know of a way to get a solid object out of a closed box without opening it chances are you have to open it.

    However, if it's never been opened then I think you're safe to sell. My family all got iPhones and in order to set my mom's up we had to call and read some numbers on the SIM card. Those numbers did not appear anywhere but on the SIM.
