Giving iPad 2 (How-To Erase Everything)

Long-Story short, I'm giving one of our employees my current iPad 2, so I need to erase everything from it.
Everything meaning (iMessages, Email Accounts, iCloud, iTunes Store Login, etc).
If anyone could help me with the problem, I'd really appreciate it

Plug it into your iTunes and click 'Restore' in the iPad summary page. That will wipe it and re-install iOS 5 (it even gives you a warning message confirming this)

You're a nice boss. When you get rid of your next one be sure to send it my way lol

Just back your iPad 2 (assuming that you'll get the iPad 3 so that you can 'restore from backup'), connect to your comp & open up iTunes, and click restore. Once all is done, it's good to go!

Yea, I gotta agree, it would be wonderful to have a free iPad 2 from a boss! That's bawse!
