Just wondering, I want to upgrade. Should I get the 4S, transfer everything over from my iPhone 4. Then reset 4 to factory settings and sell it? Is factory settings enough or do I have to do something else? I want to make sure phone is clear before I sell it. Thanks.

If I was you I would back everything up to iTunes. Sync your iPhone 4S then restore your iPhone 4 - but don't restore from backup.

What do you mean don't restore from backup?

When you've restored your phone, you will be prompted to restore phone from backup. You don't want to do this as your backup will go back onto the phone thereforee not erasing the device.

He means restore the old phone as new.
