    The phone number is programmed into the phone. A wipe will not clear than information. Only way is to contact your carrier and try to get the Master Subsidy Lock (MSL) code, then reprogram the phone number to something else and save the changes.

    Sometimes it works depending on your carrier

    You can still sell the phone. Once the new owner activates it, your number will disappear. It is like this with all CDMA phones I believe.
