    I have replaced my ipad2 with a new Air2 and want to give my husband my old ipad. If I delete all the content in Settings, can he reinstall by setting up an itunes account and synching with it?
    Will doing this get rid of my account on the ipad so he can create a new one?

    After you select erase all content and settings in Settings>General>Reset, making sure to turn off Find My iPad first, the iPad 2 will be just as it was when it came out of the box when new. Your Husband can then set it up as a new iPad with his own Apple ID.

    Just want to reinforce the advice in bold above, i.e. you need to turn off 'Find My iDevice' (on the device and best to check in iCloud to make sure) - the reason is that a new owner will not be able to setup the iPad, as already stated.

    I also recently replaced my iPad 2 w/ an Air 2 and sold the old iPad on Glyde to someone up in New England, who would not know my name - the buyer accepted the exchange and I have credit on the site, so I'm assuming that he or she was able set up the device. Dave :)
