Hello, your post is definitely out of place here on a tablet thread. However, you can probably call sprint to ask how to sell your old phone. good luck

1. Unmount SD card, then remove it.
2. Put it in a PC, set to see hidden files, delete everything.
3. On the droid, Settings > Privacy > Factory Data Reset.
4. Yank the battery out and have a really cold beer.
5. Power on and confirm that it knows nothing.
6. Reinsert and mount the SD card.
7. Launch gmail app to make sure it has no idea who you are.

Thatís what I would do, fwiw. But my curiosity is why did you buy a Sprint phone when they were letting people use them for free...

Thatís true for rooted droids, not stock ones. Stock phones are un-brickable -- that was the whole point in the heavily guarded carrier OS.
