Hello All!

I have an iPhone 5 that I want to sell. It is jailbroken on iOS 6.1(10B413). Apparently, it is also unlocked. I have never applied a jailbreak unlock. I had the iPhone unlocked through AT&T after I terminated the contract. After I received the email from AT&T stating that the device unlock was approved, I powered the phone off, inserted a new T-Mobile SIM from my iPhone 5s and rebooted the phone. The phone made and received calls properly, so I conclude that this device has been unlocked. I want to sell this phone on eBay, and I have some questions. 1) What is the best (most secure) way to delete all of my personal information from this iPhone 5, and 2) I understand that restoring the device in iTunes will install iOS 7.1, which will lose the jailbreak. Is the unlocked phone worth more with or without the jailbreak? I appreciate any advice.
