Here are ComputerWorld's tops for making sure you "sanitize" everything you need to:
- Terminate your account with your cell phone carrier. Then double-check to make certain the account is no longer active.
- Return you phone to its original factory settings. Do a complete reset on the phone so that all information related to you - directly and indirectly - is deleted, including the record of incoming and outgoing calls, text messages, your notes, your address book, even the alarm clock and wallpaper! Check out ReCellular at www.recellular.com to find out how to expunge info from phones brand by brand. Under the Online Tools tab, select Cell Phone Data Eraser.
