    MY girlfriend is not pleased with the iphone that I upgraded for her. She played with my phone and doesn't enjoy it so she has no other choice, but to sell it. Its still unopen so should she sell it as an unopen package or should she remove the sim?

    When you preorder the iphone 4, it made you choose a iphone data plan. If she sells it... will att put her to that data plan still or will att only activate it when she activates her phone? She should be fine no?

    Thanks

    If it's an unopened package, no need to remove the sim.

    If it's activated, yes, definitely remove the sim.

    As far as the plan goes, just have her check her account or call to make sure nothing changes.

    :D

    If its unopened why not return it to where you bought it from?

    FWIW, if its unopened and not activated you don't need to pull the sim card

    Hey thanks guys.

    Yea, I told her to return it, but she doesn't want to go through process. So she should be safe with selling her iphone 4 right? I don't want the buyer to be able to track her info with the imei #/Id #.

    Thanks

    She won't qualify for a discounted phone for another 2 years if she doesn't return it.
