I've seen threads like: http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13778 but they don't really answer my question. I'm not worried about someone accessing my iTunes account, but rather that the iPod will stay activated under my account even though I don't have it any more. My current iPod Touch is acting shoddy, it occasionally locks up and refuses to do anything, than I plug it into my charger and it freaks out, than I have to hard reset it. I'm thinking I'll just have to take it back to wal-mart and get another one. You know how you can have 5 computers linked to your iTunes? Is this the same case with the iPods, where you can have x amount of iPods linked up to your account, than you can't connect any more? If so, how do you deactivate an iPod from your account? Thanks in advance. EDIT: Also, if I create a backup of this iPod Touch, could I restore it onto the other iPod?
