    I'm going to be selling my first gen. 8GB iPhone in the next few weeks. At the moment it is jailbroken and unlocked using pwnage tool. When I sell it I want it to be unlocked so I can attract more buyers, but i need all my info, and my phone number, to be cleared from it. What do I need to do to accomplish this?
    If need be I guess I could sell it with my phone number. I guess...
    Should I restore with the custom firmware, and set it up as new phone???


    (also if you are interested in buying the phone it was replaced 3 weeks ago at apple, comes with applecare until january, 5 cases 4 from incase, one from iskin, original box. I'm thinking $250, but i'm open to negotiation)

    Securely wipe it, then remove your SIM card. All your data will be gone.

    agreed DFU restore

    is the best way other way can leave traces depending who gets it!
