    Hey folks, just wanted to explain how to remove your iTunes account from your iPod Touch. This little tip is extremely necessary if you'd like to sell your iPod Touch.

    *First off, please know that deleting all content from iPod Touch DOES NOT remove your iTunes account from it.

    To remove an account from iPod Touch:
    1. Connect your iPod Touch to your computer and open iTunes.
    2. Under the "Store" drop-down menu, select Sign Out.
    3. To verify this indeed worked, go to the iTunes Store on your iPod Touch, it should come up with a box requesting BOTH username (email) and password.
    4. Now the iPod Touch is ready to be sold!

    Thanks for reading!

    This only works on the 3.0 software, and honestly, I think this is in the wrong section of the site forum.

    Before I sold my ipt2g, I restored to the original FW and disconnected the iPod right after the restore was finished, before it was booted up. It was showing the 'connect to iTunes' logo which was the way it came out of the box.
