    Hi Guys :)
    I'm planning on switching to a blackberry pearl, its on its way to me. Now I switched to AT&T to get the iPhone so I never had another SIM card before. My question is, what must I do to successfully deactivate it so another person can activate it without any problems? I know I can restore the phone back to factory settings in itunes but what else? I really don't want anything to go wrong. Please any help I will be so grateful! Thanks!

    Kayla, I have couple reasons to hate you. One for the annoying font color, two that you are looking for tips on an iPhone forum to get rid of iPhone for Blackberry.

    Somewhere in Texas
    Settings -> General -> Reset -> Erase All Content and Settings

    After that restore, take the sim card out and you should be good (from the replies I have seen in other threads like this)

    Your AT&T Pearl will come with a SIM Card. You don't have to use it.

    You may want to download PocketMac and install it in advance of getting your Pearl, because it requires a restart. And if you're using the 8120, download the driver update.

    Other than that, when you receive your pearl, plug it in and PocketMac will sync it with your iCal and Address Book.
