    Hi, I had my ipad2 for 11months.
    I didn't have anything loaded from iTunes, no music, etc.
    Didn't have any credit card info on the app ID. Made sure I was signed out of everything, apple ID, etc.
    There was a few apps of games on there.

    The buyer had an ipad1, and was happy to buy the ipad2.
    It was ipad2 16G wifi.

    I agreed to sell it without reset all settings, or erase all content and settings.
    I was not an avid user, but wanted to sell to upgrade to ipad3.

    The deed is done, was there anything I should be concerned about?

    Thanks.

    You still should've reset the ipad. The buyer might be able to extract user info. You should change your itunes password, just in case.

    It was in excellent condition, since I mainly used it to surf the web.
    Wasn't one of those who had hundreds of apps or songs.

    He was also a novice at iPad use, and we both didn't want him having any technical problems taking it home and installing iTunes himself.

    Also didn't want him backing out of sale, since I was getting a good price.

    itunes on the ipad is a default app and can't be gotten rid of. When you reset, all the default apps are on there.

    +1 on factory reset

    After the reset, the buyer don't need to do anything to get it going, no set-up, no installation.

    If Find my IPad was enabled, I would remote wipe it if he still has your iCloud ID in use. Sorry, but I would never have agreed to selling an iPad with my information still defined on the device.

    Heck, When I gave my Fire to my SISTER, I wiped it first. :D. I sure would have wiped the iPad.

    thanks for the feedback :)

    All good points to keep in mind... although the sale is already done.

    I'll be more mindful next time, thanks for the advice and feedback.

    I definitely would have wiped it clean as you probably cannot remember everything you have done on it within the last year. But if you are pretty sure you had no credit card info, etc. and your password wasn't saved then you are probably okay. I just would not do that again! :)
