Circumstances prevented me from being able to pay my bill, and my contract was terminated. I would like to sell my iPhone in order to cover (some) of the costs of my ETF, and I have read here that there is no problem in doing that. I know that the bill is my responsibility, and now that things are finally starting to look up, I plan to sell my iPhone and pay the balance asap.
That said, I don't want to stick someone with an iPhone 4 that they can't activate. I've been unable to find much reliable info online, despite hours of searching. So...if I sell my phone, will they be able to activate it on their own line despite my balance owed? Some say that AT&T locks the IMEI and others say that they do not. If I can sell it, do I need to do anything other than give them the phone for them to be able to activate it themselves on their own account?
Like I said, I'm not trying to post a sob story about my situation...mainly, I want to make sure that the buyer can actually use it.

Thanks for your quick response, kdfederer!
Should I remove the Sim? I did do a full restore on the phone through itunes, and set it up as a new phone, but I think it still shows my phone number listed on the device details.
(Sorry for all of the questions, I know this is a strange situation)
