I own an ipod touch 4g and think about selling it becase I've purchased an Iphone 4.
What should I do in order to delete personal info from my ipod? I did "delete all content" in ipod's general menu. Will it delete all my purchased apps and any account information for sure?
Is the Ipod registered on my name and personal info (I mean, will anyone be able to find out my personal contact info I gave to Apple when first connecting the ipod to itunes?)?
I'm kinda worried since I might end up selling it to a person I don't know and don't want anyone to get any of my personal information ...
Thanks in advance, and I hope I posted it on the right forum.
Have a great day!
It should only take seconds since:
This resets all settings, and erases all your information and media by removing the
encryption key to the data (which is encrypted using 256-bit AES encryption).
I would first try resetting the iPod:
Reset iPod touch: Press and hold the On/Off Sleep/Wake button and the Home
button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
Next would be to place thei Pod in recovery mode and retore the iPod to factory defaults/new iPod. For recovery mode see:
Thanks, figured out myself I should restart it, worked great. Though it was the same story in the next few tries to erase all data.
I updated the iOS to 4.3.5 and now it erases all data without problem.
Now I only want to know if my personal info is stored at Apple as the owner of this ipod. And if someone who buys my ipod will be able to access the information.
I'd be grateful if someone gave me a link to the page I could send Apple an email asking this, since the only one I found is a page where you must pay if you don't have and apple care plan. My ipod is 4 months old btw.
