Recommended Posts

I got a new iPhone that came with a SIM card. before I sell my old iPhone, should I remove the SIM card.

I do not know exactly what is on the SIM card and don't know if it matters. Thanks

Yes, you should remove it. There's nothing on it that's required for the iPhone to function, and it can be traced back to you. Anyone's that purchasing an iPhone second-hand will have their own SIM for use.

In addition, make sure you use the "Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings" feature to remove any personally-identifiable information stored on the phone.

Yeah, it would be best to remove it and wipe it like Rob said, otherwise they could get access to your number(s) and your contacts numbers as well as any personal information that is stored on the phone.

Without.

A SIM card can contain certain number of messages and contacts.

I'd also do a firmware restore via itunes if your selling or receiving.
