hello all not so much an ipad question as it is an idevice problem. i want to gift an idevice preloaded. that is to say, i want to hand over an idevice to someone and when she turns it on she finds it has all of her favorite artists on it already. when she goes to sync it to her comp it will want to erase everything, i think at least. i dont remember if it keeps the old but prevents you from copying over old files into your library. in any case, is it possible to gift an idevice preloaded and have the recipient be able to access the gift fully? since apple forces itunes and their store down peoples throats i cannot believe they dont offer this. i have been thinking about a workaround. i have thought about making her an itunes account, place the content and then give her the device with the password to the account. i think that would work in theory. that way she will be able to take the content off and back it up and even make a new itunes account and link everything to that. or maybe that wont work?
