    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!
