    Hey my screen is shot, LCD broken with white screen/vertical lines. I was going to ebay it as is but was worried about my info on it. Currently it cannot connect to itunes so i can't wipe it. Is it safe to sell or is my info still accessible on there? Is there any other way to wipe it? Thx

    Do you have findmyiphone on it.

    If so you can remote wipe it.

    I do but it can't be found. The phone is pretty messed up.

    If your overly worried then abandon your idea of selling the iPhone and let it go to Apple heaven.

    I wouldn't sell it if you can't erase it, too many sharks in the water these day's.

    Plug it into iTunes and completely re-install the iOS, that wipes it

    You can set it up as a new iPhone with iTunes

    The point is that the OP said "it cannot connect to itunes". So no matter how many times you suggest connecting the device to iTunes to do whatever, he can't.
