way to turn off Find My Phone without internet connection iPhone 4

I have my new shiny 5S and want to sell my iPhone 4.  But I can't Erase All Content and Settings because Find My Phone is activated and I don't have an internet connection - I have transferred my service to my new phone.

 

Is there any way to get round this?  I suspect not so I'll need to get a new SIM to connect the old phone just to turn Find My Phone off.

 

Should have thought of it earlier.... way to turn off Find My Phone without internet connection iPhone 4

Force the phone into recovery mode, as described here, & restore it as a new device:

Make sure the deactivated sim is still in the phone. Eject the phone when finished & remove the sim, if you want.

Make sure you disassociate the device from your Apple ID.
