    I got my new iphone 4S and am selling my 3G. I wiped everything, but the only thing I don't like is that when I go to phone -> contacts....on the top of the screen is says "My Number: xxx-xxx-xxxx". How do I get the phone to not display my phone number on there? I'd hate to sell it with that information available to someone else.

    Thanks!

    Remove the SIM card.

    you can manually remove it...i forgot how...go to General | Settings | Phone :)

    and yes, just remove the SIM too...it's useless to the seller as he will get a new one when he activates it from the carrier.

    You should reset you phone completely and remove your Sim card.
