    When selling a iPhone after a OS reinstall any issue with putting your sim in it to activate it and show it working, or better to have the buyer use their sim?

    I can't see an issue in activating the phone for them (as long as you take the SIM out, of course), but I'd just as soon as leave it as a fresh restore and let them set it up from step one.

    When I'm done with my phone, I wipe it and either give it to a family member or donate it. The satisfaction is worth more than the money.

    Erase iPhone then remove the SIM card. They can get their own SIM card and connect to iTunes...:cool:
