    Selling used Global, how do I prep it?

    I am selling my Global. How do I prep it? I know enough to wipe data. What about SD card? Anything else I need to do?

    For the SD card, a format alone is not good enough. With a regular format data can be recovered pretty easy if no new data is written to the card. Pull the SD Card and put it in a USB Card reader. Now you need SDFormatter. Launch the app and hit Options. Now for type of format choose FULL(OVERWRITE). This will write a bunch of 0 and 1s, more or less junk data, to the SD card. I would do it two or three times. Even then there is still a slight chance of recovery but the chances diminish and what data might still be recoverable is far more likley to only be little bits and pieces. I might suggest SBFing the phone 2 or 3 times just to be safe to.

    I was a little paranoid about the SD card too. I manually deleted everything on it and then formatted it. Not sure if it was enough but oh well...

    I personally wouldnt say oh well, you never know what sensitive info could have been stored on there at one time. Hopefully overwritten a few times by now just out of normal use but you never know..but hey thats just me. I usually try to be safe then sorry. To bad Sony doesnt think like this..but thats another issue in itself lol.

    All excellent advice!

    Thanks.

    Is there a place to sell used phones in the community? Otherwise I was going to put it up on my local online classifieds.
