    Hey everyone. My friend sold me his iPhone 5S, I had it reset and then I activated it with my SIM. After testing it out I wasn't quite happy with it as I don't think the upgrade was really worth it from my iP5. I took out my sim and then slipped it back into my 5 and was thinking about selling the 5S on eBay.

    Now do I have to reset the phone completely or can I still just leave it activated so that the buyer just needs to pop in there SIM card. I don't have any info on the phone. Only used it for a day or two to test it and didn't use it with any personal information outside of having my SIM in there to activate it.

    Would just like some clarification, thanks!

    I'd wipe it. Just in case there's iMessage activation tokens or something still on the phone.
