    When a new upgrade comes out for the iPod touch, is it true that when you upgrade it, you lose all your data?

    thanks

    Can you specify by what you mean by upgrade?

    If by firmware, yes because a new jailbreak will be needed or be repeated. This is because with any jailbreak a restore is needed, so that will result in the loss of the data.
    So, if you are on 1.1.4 and 1.1.5 (fantasy) came out, you'd need to restore with 1.1.5 and use a Ziphone/iLiberty+ sort of program to jailbreak.
    (An update while jailbroken results in the loss of the jailbreak)

    If you haven't jailbroken and a new update comes out, then you'd just select update and that'd be it.

    yes when you update your firmware everything resets similar to a restore only with the update option you get to back up your contacts and music/videos through itunes.

    No, if you are on 1.1.4 you don't have to restore. Make sure you use my guide or another good guide and follow it exactly and you wont have any problems.
