What should I know/do before I sell a cell phone I own to a person I know?

I bought a new dumbphone a few months ago as a throwaway/work phone. Didn't like it particularly but I still have it and am not using it.
It's on TracFone and I see, through the website, how to remove the phone from my account (I have other phones with them).
Is there an easy way to factory reset a Samsung s390g? Failing that, I would manually dig through menus and remove any email accounts, contacts, files, memory cards, customized settings, etc.
Is there anything else I need to know about transferring ownership of a TracFone to another party? For simplicity I would let the minutes stay on the phone, and not try to transfer them. If it matters, the would-be buyer is a real-life person I see on a daily basis, not some random internet
