    So i am selling my 1st gen iphone, when i ship it am i supposed to include my old SIM or take it out? i know i need to do a "in phone" restore but do i need to take my SIM? it is an invalid SIM now anyways.

    whenever you sell a GSM phone, take out the SIM (at least that's what I've always done)... When I ship my iPhone 2G out, I will take the SIM card off ;)

    Even if it's deactivated and the phone is restored the buyer can still see your number. There's really no reason to keep it in, just take it out.

    same issue, download the trial of garage sale from iwascoding.com or just use firefox

    i highly recommend garage sale, it will also give free supersized pics (10max) and makes the listing sexy
