    Definitely do not give the IMEI number until you turn over the iPhone.  And before you do turn it over, go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase all content and settings so none of your personal information remains.

    Before Sellings iOS Device...


    Backup the device to iTunes or iCloud, if desired: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1766

    Settings > Messages > iMessage > Off

    Settings > FaceTime > Off

    Settings > iCloud > Delete Accout (this only unregisters and deletes it off the iPhone)

    Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings
