    What exactly do you do when you sell a unlocked phone? Obviously I'll want to delete my phone contacts but other than that..?

    It is hacked with CyanogenMod.

    That won't erase CyanogenMod itself will it?

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you'd have to flash the original Rom back.

    lol I just sold it, put it up on Craigslist and sold it within a half hour.

    Did the data reset, and it didn't delete the hacked mod. Guy just came up and we talked for like a half hour and now to cancel my T Mobile account.

    ..I regret having Google carve my name into it though..I could of easily got $500 for it, but only got $420 for it with the desktop dock included, and a rubber case.

    That's why I didn't personalize my Nexus since I want the maximum money I can get from it when I decide to sell it in the future. :)

    Hee hee, it looks like your name is mike, too bad you couldn't sell it to someone named mike. :p

    I like the idea of some guy running around with someone elses name on his phone. ;) His friends will think he stole it.

    Did he buy it with cyanogen? I almost bought one on ebay with it.

    Heh... It's amazing around here how many people are scared to root their own phones. I charge $50 to root Android Phones and I root about 2-8 per week (with installation of custom ROM's).

    Have mostly been rooting N1's and putting the Desire ROM's on them.

    I offer no additional support after the fact. I include a "fact sheet" with them with links to resources to get their own help... :)
