    You should always remove the SIM card when selling a phone. The buyer is able to get a new one from a carrier of choice for free or very cheaply.

    yea, its best to sell it without a SIM, since the new owners needs to get a new one or use his.

    Yeah, you can remove it. Just let the buy know that (since the phone needs a SIM to bypass itunes activation in the event he restores the phone)
