    When iOS 7 comes out I want to pounce so I can play with it ASAP. But I'm also likely to want the new iphone too. depending on what they have in the 5S.

    if I upgrade to iOS 7 then attempt to sell my old phone, I may run into a problem.

    I'll want to wipe the phone before the sale. However at that point, the buyer would need my apple ID and password to be able to activate the phone. or can you turn that off when you're selling it?

    Thanks!

    Yes you just need to go to Settings > iCloud then either delete from the phone or turn off find my iPhone before wiping.

    The buyer will only need your Apple ID info if you fail to wipe the phone properly. The new security feature requires you to log out of your iCloud account (with password) BEFORE you wipe it. If you wipe it without logging out, the phone cannot be activated again without that information.

    Just make sure you turn off the Find My iPhone app in the settings and also make sure you log-out of the iCloud, the AppStore and your AppleID in the settings on the old phone prior to doing any wipe/reset to factory settings.

    Most likely when you do the wipe. It will make iOS 7 unusable, will ask for developers Apple ID.

    also, make sure to go into your itunes account to the manage device section and remove the phone from there as well.

    Why would it ask for the developer's Apple ID? The OP stated that "when iOS 7 comes out..." so I take that to mean when it is officially available to the masses.

    Well also if the phone's udid is registered they wouldn't have a problem either.
