    I got a new Droid X2 and plan to sell my BlackBerry Torch on ebay. Does the SIM card need to stay with the phone or should I remove it? I don't know if it is a part of the phone or part of a subscription and the buyer would get a new one with service.

    Thanks!

    Keep your sim card, it's of no use to the buyer. They will either already have their own sim card to put into the phone or they will get one with service from their carrier.

    The sim card is part of your account, not the phone. You should never give your sim card along with the phone.
