Remove SIM before giving away old iPhone?

I'm going to try to sell an old iPhone 7 Plus, but I'll give it away if I get no cash offers. I have completely wiped the phone of all information.

Do I need to remove the SIM card? Is there any personal data on it? Or should I leave it in so the next user can use it? It's an AT&T Wireless card.

Remove it. You donít know what account or personal data it might contain. The new user will have to get a new SIM card anyway.

Absolutely remove it. If you know you won't use it again in the future, destroy it.
