    Ok to sell BB w/ Sim card?

    Advertisement



    I have a 10 month old 7100i through Nextel that I know longer need.

    I've already cancelled my account with Nextel and I figured I could sell the phone to recover some of my costs.

    I've deleted all my contacts and personal information off of the phone buy I'm not sure what's information is on the SIM card.

    If I sell it, is it alright to just leave the SIM card in the phone or should it be erased (if that's even possible)?

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    Yes it is ok to sell your SIM w/ the phone. As you stated you already deleted all your contacts, and to my knowledge that is all the is stored on the SIM. You should state when selling that you are including the SIM though....

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ When you wipe the phone it does not wipe the sim card. One way to erase the sim card is to go into your address book, click trackwheel and choose sim phonebook, then delete each contact seperately. Another faster way to erase the sim would be to put your sim in another Nextel and do a feature reset, or master clear, depending on which Nextel. Then you good to go.

    Also when you cancled the account the sim with be "burned" after 60 days or so ,as in if the person recieved it would not be able to use it on theyre account . At least thats how cingulars sims (would assume all sims) are if they have been placed on a active account and then someone else bought the device and wanted to place it on theyre account would come up the sim is in use on another account. when the rep tried to enter it in the sim field on the system.

    GSM sims (cingular, Tmo) are burned for only 1 number. iDen (Nextel) can be use as many time you want

    sn1p3r is correct, an iDEN sim can be used over and over, permitted the previous owner doesnt owe a balance, didnt report it lost or stolen, and doesnt still have it as active on their account.
