Ok, ebay time

I'm selling my iphone 4 on ebay. Smiley Sad its unfortunate but i need to money. anyways, what do i need to do exactly before i ship the phone off to the new owner? restore to factory settings, i know. and take the sim card out? right. but what do i do with the sim because it wont fit in other phones. AND also how can i change my bill so that im not paying for an iphone anymore?

Go by an AT&T store, they can get you a new sim, and set you up on a non smart phone plan, if you have a non smart phone you are activating.

...and bring along a few hundred dollars or so for the early termination fee Smiley Sad  If you have a 4, they you're still under contract...

So I take it their was another thread he posted saying this. I know most wouldn't, but there are some that waste the extra money for some reason.

Wrong! reread his post he saying he wont have a smart phone on his bill.

 

after it sells restore your Iphone 4 to factory settings.remove the sim card. contact AT&T tell them you no longer have the Iphone 4 and you wish to remove the data plan. and if you got a new phone non smart phone you need a sim card for that phone activated on your account.

You can switch phones at any point in a contract without incurring an ETF.  AT&T just won't provide you with another phone at a discount.  But thanks for stopping by...

Re: Ok, ebay time

Did you get reduced pricing on the iPhone 4? If so, you won't be eligible for another reduced price upgrade for quite a while, typically 18 months into a 2 year contract.

If you bought the phone under contract, you can sell it and buy a non smart phone at full price and activate it on the account. If you want another i4 later then you will be out the full price.
