Question Im selling my blackberry 8830, should i market it as locked?

Please Login to Remove!

Im selling it on ebay and i want to know if i should tell them that its locked(i dont really know what that means). Should i tell them that it can be unlocked(drawing a blank here too) ? its a sprint phone.
Is there a way I can make sure ALL of my stuff is off the phone?

Thank you!

Yes, it should be listed as locked as it is locked.

If you want to clear you BB before selling, options > security > general settings > Menu > Wipe Handheld.

...and be sure to either transfer your BIS account to the new BB (if applicable) or have the BIS account deleted by your carrier.
