These were old flip phones that didn't use a password. I don't know about the sim card.
If I remember right, if they are as old as I think they are, they wouldn't have a slot for a sim card except for the one that came with the phone. Newer phones, I think within maybe the last 10-12 years, you can add an additional sim card so that you can have an extra place to store apps or pw's, etc on. If they are all older flip phones they may not have that extra slot for an external sim card, it would just have the one that originally came with the phone.

Most of them should have a menu somewhere to do a factory reset. You just have to go thru a few steps i.e. look for your phone settings or phone info things like that. Sometimes you just have to go thru a lot of menu's to get to it unlike the ones we have today it's easy to find the menu to do a factory reset.

Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!”

He took his vorpal sword in hand;
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
He chortled in his joy.

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

The last flip phone I had was a Motorola V551 back in the day. I got it in 2005, and used it until around 2011 or so. It was a GSM phone, so I'd imagine it had to have had one, but I honestly can't remember if it had a sim card or not.

To get maximum benefit from old cell phones: Donate Mobile Phones for Charity | Recycle Mobile Phones - Cell Phones For Soldiers

They're not worth much monetarily, so at least get a brief feel-good moment from them.
I agree, money wise they are really not worth much for as old as they are. But Clara's idea is a great one to donate. Even if you donate to shelters I'm sure they may have some kind of program or something where they are not investing too much into an equipment but at the same time can use the equipment or lend/give to those that are in need as long as they are still working.

At the supermarket near me, there's actually this kind of kiosk that gives you money in exchange for old devices. You key in the make and model of the device and then deposit it in the slot, and the payment you get depends on what kind of device it is (I presume).

If I sell an old phone I no longer use can someone retrieve information from it to use?
Edit: To put this more in context someone in my area is buying old phones.

Model numbers:
Blackberry: 2684358814792268
Lg: VM510
Samsung: SGH-S730G
Just quoting this for posterity given my reply right above.
