    I am going to purchase an Iphone and give my Itouch to my daughter. I am confused over the difference between reset and restore. The goal is to clean off my Itouch before giving it to her. Will she be able to register it under her own name? Will I have issues with transferring my Itunes to the new Iphone? Are there other issues that I am not aware of?

    Just do a restore and it will be fine. She can named it whatever she likes. Registering isn't an issue because it's done by serial number not by name. When you set up your iphone all your purchased stuff can easily be synced.

    So lets think the iPod touch as a computer.
    So what do we do if a computer freezes, reset it.
    What do we want to do when everything wants to be cleaned off, restore.
    Bit simple but you get the concept.
    And Jpga13 filled you with the details.
