Thread: This is probably the not the right place to ask

    Default This is probably the not the right place to ask
    I guess I don't enough posts to ask this in the buy/sell area, so I figured I'd ask here.

    We are going to sell our iPhone 3G's so we can upgrade. How does one go about selling an iPhone? Regular phones one keeps the SIM chip, I think, what about the iPhone?

    Anything special we need to do to the phone before selling?

    I apologize if this is misplaced.

    Thanks in advance.

    I second the jailbreak. It should fetch a few more bucks if it's jailbroken.

    AND unlocked if possible. That's always value-added.

    Oh crap, maybe I messed up. I did the erase all settings etc and then pulled the SIM. Is that going to be a problem for someone else to restore it?

    Hitting the erase all makes the phone do a restore.
