8 things to do before selling your iphone.

The excitement has kicked in, and we are ready to upgrade to something better, thinner, and cuter. Before selling or trading in your iPhone, make sure you follow these steps to ensure all your data is removed from your device. Here are the 8 Things to Do Before Selling Your iPhone:

  1. Back up your iPhone.
  2. Remove photos from Camera Roll. Connect the device to your computer and open Image Capture (our recommendation, it's much faster) or iPhoto. Select all photos and then click Import All. In Image Capture, select "Delete items from camera after downloading." In iPhoto, choose to "delete photos" after importing.
  3. Turn iMessage off. Open the Settings app > Messages > iMessage > switch to off.
  4. Turn FaceTime off. Open the Settings app > FaceTime > switch to off.
  5. Disable your iCloud account. Open the Settings app > iCloud > tap "Delete Account" to delete the account from the device.
  6. Log out of Apple ID. Open the Settings app > iTunes & App Stores > tap Apple ID and sign out.
  7. Restore to factory settings. Open the Settings app > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings.
  8. Unregister your device at supportprofile.apple.com.
  9. Call your carrier and ask them to disassociate the device from your account. Some important numbers: Sprint: 1-800-SPRINT1; AT&T: 1-800-331-0500; Verizon: 1-800-VERIZON; T-Mobile: 1-800-T-MOBILE.

Our Testimonials

Let's See What Some Have To Say

  Collin is the master. I had a broken iPad mini. Began by getting a quote from Collin. He answered me right away before this business hours even started. I dropped off the broken iPad mini screen and he was finished in about three hours. They called me up and had it ready. Collin was friendly and knows his stuff. I suggest anyone who broke their screen to check them out. "

  My husband and I just got both of our iPhones repaired at the Shirley location. We couldn't be more happy. Our iPhones look and feel brand new!! Both technicians, Ali and Marisol, are wonderful, knowledgeable, professional and caring! Being, that we walked into the store fifteen before eight we were afraid that we would have to leave our iPhones there until tomorrow. "

  My 9 year old dropped his iPad mini shattering the screen and was devastated. I found this place through groupon and immediately purchased a voucher. The carle place store is amazing. Very clean and faster than i had expected. I went in and Nora greeted me. She is courteous and professional. I asked how long it would take and she surprised me by saying less than an hour. "
