    I was wondering from anyone who has had or sold an iphone what you did before you sold it. I have old firmware on it and i want to sell it with the old firmware so they can jailbreak it. Im just a little confused on what else i should do tpo it before i sell it. Also how long should I wait before I sell it from the day its canceled.

    settings > general > reset > erase all content and settings

    that's it...it will make it like a new iphone except it will keep the current firmware whatever it is.

    Just use the SIM tool and pop the tray out. Super easy. There's a little hole for it and everything.

    You should take it out, unless you want to pay your buyer's phone bill :p

    hello, i just sold my 1st gen iphone on ebay and need to wipe it clean. does a "full restore" from iTunes really wipe it clean, or does it work like a "quick" format, leaving your data on the phone and accessible to a hacker?
