    Hello, I just sold an Apple TV 2 on Amazon. However, before I sold it, I forgot to reset the device. I do believe it had my payment options on there to rent movies. Is there any way to unlink the device? Or is it associated with my iTunes payment information that I can change online? Just don't want all of my personal information going out there. Thanks!

    Just hope the person you sold it to is honest.

    Change your password at least ... Will prevent the ATV to connect for more details

    Actually, come to think of it, I restored it about a month ago and haven't purchased anything since. However, my Apple ID was on there and probably has it linked to iTunes Match and stuff.

    Other than changing my password, is there anything else I should do?

    Changing your password should be enough!

    I'd say don't forget to reset ANYTHING before you sell it, be it iPhones, iPods, macs, time capsules, apple tv, ALL of it. That's your personal information out there!

    Change your password and remove the device from your Apple ID (go to Your Account in iTunes and then "Manage Devices"). Not much else you can do, but that should stop any purchases being made.
