    you cant do what you want... you can delete everything but applications are drm protected to an itunes account.. if he takes it with your applications and syncs it to his computer its just going to delete the applications without your itunes account info.


    to delete the ipod go to settings>reset>erase all content and settings.

    so i cannot give him my ipod as is with my apps on there and then have him log into his itunes account on my ipod so he can download apps under his name without charging my account?

    applications are drm protected meaning that they belong to YOUR account once he syncs the ipod to his itunes account its just going to delete your applications and replace it with whatever is in his itunes account

    and also giving him your applications is technically illegal anyway and thats why it cant be done..

    if you delete the ipod and give it to him he can use it with his account just fine he just isnt going to be able to keep your applications.

    so basically i just wanna give him my ipod completely wiped out and all that is on there is my apps. then i wanna make sure he can log onto his account name on my ipod and download more apps under his name if he likes. i just will tell him not to plug it ever into his computer. can that be done?

    without your user and id those applications will never be updated he will have trouble downloading new applications and keeping them all up to date without your user id and password. When he goes to open the app store it will show all the apps that need updating the ones you left will be in there also and he wont be able to update them..

    I dont really think your getting it.. give him the ipod without your applications let him buy his own apps

    I'll even add to say what's the issue of him just downloading the apps you had onto his own Apple account?

    you can have more then one id on there I know of people who have done it but your apple account will still be on there if you dont delete those applications.. and its going to cause a huge headache.. trust me its easier just to give him a blank ipod in the long run.. apple designed it this way for a reason so you couldnt rip them off and thats why it works this way....
