My daughter got one for Christmas. Just hook it up to iTunes and follow the steps?
Good link with steps: How to Set Up a New iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad
When I did my touch for the first time, I restored it to my most recent iPhone backup, and then deleted what I didn't want. I found that easier than loading from scratch, but YMMV depending on whether she's got an existing device and how much duplicate content she might want on her new device.
If she decides to restore off the backup of another device, she just has to do that, immediately rename the new device on iTunes and manually change its synching profile (unless she wants it to run identically).
Here you go:
To remove a device or computer from your Apple ID:
Sign in to your Apple ID by choosing Store > Sign In from the iTunes menu.
Choose Store > View My Account from the iTunes menu.
From the Account Information screen, click Manage Devices.
Click the Remove button next to the device name you would like to unassociate.
I snipped the info from here: iTunes Store: Associating a device or computer to your Apple ID
That should take care of your access concerns.

If you remove the account would it not stop any music bought from iTunes under that account from playing......I don't know, I'm just asking for my own reference as I couldn't see it on that page?Originally Posted by Kaykaykay

Excellent guys! I love you, two!
We are setting this up today when she gets off work ~ I was just checking out all that one can do with the iPod Touch. OMG. No wonder they say it is just like the iPad! She will have iMessage, Face Time ~ I don't even have that!
One thing ~ do you guys think this iPod came with iOS 5? Or do we have to update that?
It should come with iOS 5 if it came from Apple.Originally Posted by SweetPoison
C00L. Thanks, Gab. I guess we will know as soon as we hook it up to iTunes, right?
I dread this. I do. I so hate playing with iTunes. In any fashion. He cheats. Doesn't play well with others and just is an all around PIA.
Don't go far, Kay and Gab!
I like iTunes, it does everything I need........I'm not blonde though!Originally Posted by SweetPoison
