Factory reset shouldn't erase anything on the external SD card. Also, I've never heard of having to remove the SIM card, but I'm not positive on that.

I always take the sd card out of the phone just as a precaution, I know it's more than likely unnecessary. However, with the SIM cards, I'm completely unsure of the effect on leaving it in the phone during the reset. I've read some places that it should be removed but most places don't mention anything about it! I've never reset one myself, so I guess I'll find out when the situation happens! :p
