Ok... if you sell your old 3G phone do you include the sim or sell it without?

Depends whether the phone came with a contract or if it was simply pay-as-you-go.

I personally wouldn't give me SIM card away with the phone. Imagine how many people would phone the wrong person etc etc.. it's not worth it.

Jailbreak it and unlock it before selling thereforee allowing the new owner to put any simcard he/she wants in it.

Remove the SIM before selling. They need to get their own SIM from their carrier.

Once you activate a new phone, that sim really becomes useless but I still remove them when selling a phone. I also cut it in half. lol Removing the sim is just a standard practice.

Thats not a bad price really. You've done well. You may have got a little more if you shipped it Unlocked :)

Thats why it's the special edition. It was only given to 'Select' members of public. I myself not included.

It may just be an old wifes tale. I'm up for a full blown debate if your game...

It was a 16 gig black. I feel it was win/win. I qualified for the 199 update (at the last minute) and cleared 150. I will save it for when the new phone comes out next year (hopefully) :sneaky:
