Can I use 2 iPhones with the same iTunes account? help...

At the moment I have an iPhone 3G but my wife doesn't. I have a Windows Vista machine at home that has all our music in iTunes and all the apps I have downloaded from the app store. We only have 1 login to our windows vista PC that we share, we don't have individual signons.
On Friday I will be upgrading to the 3Gs and my wife will also be getting one.
My question is can we sync both iPhones with the same PC using the same Windows login and the same iTunes account, i.e. share all music and apps with both iPhones?
Thanks

A computer can sync a dozen iPods and/or iPhones (just saying).
However, You can't use more than one computer for that iPhone.

  • 2 iphones with the same itunes account...

    Hi All
    Just wondering if anyone has the answer i need! A friend of mine and his wife are using the same itunes account for both their iphones, this is causing issues now as the info on the phones are starting to merge with each other so is it possible to set up a new itunes account for the wifes phone without losing any data?
    thanks

    Yes - well, not iTunes, but new AppleIDs to use with other Apple services.
    They can keep a common AppleID for iTunes and App store purchased content, but get and use their own different AppleIDs for iCloud and iMessage.  That way their iCloud email, iCloud backups, iCloud sync'd content, and iMessages will be separate.
    To change iCloud accounts on a device, you have to go into the iCloud account settings, delete the account, then log back in with the new AppleID.
    To change iMessage, go to the messages settings, select the appleID, log out, then log in with the new AppleID.
    They can grab free gmail, hotmail, MS Live, AOL or whatever free email they wish if they need a new primary email to create a new AppleID.
    iTunes and App store purchases are permanently tied to the AppleID used when purchasing, so they would not want to change that if they want to share purchased content.

  • I got a second iPad in the family.  Can we use it with the same Apple account and name?

    We got a second iPad in the family, cna we use it with the same Apple name and account?

    Yes you can, and it's then up to you whether to have the same the same or different content to the older one. When you sync to it your computer for the first time it may be best to give it a different name, just so that you can distinguish them.

  • Can you sync your ipad & iphone to the same itunes account yet or?

    its been over year now and the iPad 2 is out, its apparently evident that when something goes wrong no one response here with a solution, can you or can you not sync both a iPad and iPhone with the same iTunes account flawlessly yet, because i helped over 4 people to do this and every single method seems to be work arounds.
    has anyone figured out how to sync both devices to the same itunes account with out work arounds after all your apps get scattered outside their folders?

    You have always been able to sync as many devices as you like to one account/library/computer.
    Plug in one device, select what you want to sync, then sync.
    Unplug that device.
    Plug in the other device, select what you want to sync, then sync.

  • My iPhone both sends and receives messages from 2 different phones. They are registered with the same iTunes account. What can I do to stop this?

    My partner and I both have iPhone 5s and an iPad. We registered all three products with the same iTunes account as we download music and movies together. I have noticed when my partner sends me a message it also appears on my phone that I have sent it AND recieved it. The same goes for when I text him. I send the message to his phone and my phone also recieves it. Facetime does the same thing. Its very strange. Does any one know what I can do to stop this from happening?

    To stop this, don't use the same Apple ID on both phones for iMessage and FaceTime.  (You can continue to use the same ID for iTunes; it doesn't need to be the same as the ID used for iMessage or FaceTime.)
    On one of the phones, go to Settings>Messages>Send & Receive, tap the ID, sign out, then sign back in with a different ID.  Then do the same thing in Settings>FaceTime.

    Your iPhone and iPod can share the same iTunes account.  Apps can be freely shared and used by one or both devices.  You can't use money in your iTunes account to pay for your phone, but purchased apps can be used by both the iPod and iPhone.

  • HT1386 can i sync 20 iphones with the same itunes?

    can i sync 20 iphones with the same itunes?

    From tt2:
    In brief...
    You can sync as many devices as you like to a single library.
    Up to five computers can be authorized for your account's protected content.
    Each device can hold protected content from up to five different accounts.
    Managing apps purchased with more than one account is a chore.
    A combination of up to 10 iOS devices and computers can be authorized for automatic downloads of your purchases.

  • Using 2 iPhones on the same iTunes account

    My fiancee and I are wanting to use both of our iPhones on the same iTunes account because she doesn't download music and I do. I can't for the life of me figure out how to make it so she has access to my account and I am scared I will mess something up and have to reset the phones. I am not sure as to the state of her appleID or itunes, either way everything on it was stuff I have given her so not a big deal really. Any suggestions? I imagine it is fairly simple but its frustrating me lol. 

    Not sure what the  issue is.
    Please explain

    You can use the same apple id for two separate phoones to share apps/music, however you would need a separate apple id for both phone for imessage/facetime/icloud.

    Do you mean iTunes library?
    iTunes account is what you use to make iTunes purcahses.
    iTunes library is what is on your computer.
    It says my phone can only be set up woth one itunes account. How do I remove the previous account?
    No, it tells you it can only be sync'd with one iTunes library.
    Simplest way is to copy the entire /Music/iTunes/ folder (thisis the iTunes library) from old computer to new computer.

  • CAn You Sync Two iPhones to the same iTunes Account?

    Has anyone been successful in syncing two iPhones to the same iTunes account. I am the main user of our Mac and my wife just uses it for email and internet browsing. Basically she uses my user account and therefore we share one contacts list, one calendar, one iTunes, and both use the same Mac Mail with our own email addresses. Both also want to use MobileMe.
    Thanks,
    trippj

    Yes.. It is a very difficult process.. First, log into 1 computer with your account and Authorize that computer to use the iPhone. then Sync your phone.. Log out and go to the second computer.. login and Authorize then sync your phone.
    It worked for me

  • HT1766 can you have multiple iPhones in the same iTunes account without overwriting each phones content?

    Can you have multiple iPhones in the same iTunes account without overwriting each phones content?

    Hi sandexpress,
    As Ocean20 indicates, you want to make sure that you have automatic syncing turned off. In iTunes Preferences under Devices, make sure you have "Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically" checked. Then connect each iPhone, and make sure that "Manually Manage Music and Videos" is checked on the Info page for each of them. Then go into each page for each device, and select what you want to sync to that particular device. (you would do this one device at a time - complete the steps for one of the phones, then connect the next one and do the same thing).
    With this kind of setup, you can modify what will sync at any given time for a particular device once you have connected it to iTunes, but before you click on the Sync button at the bottom of the screen. If you want to change some sync options on a particular device, you would just go into the page you wanted to change (Music, Photos, Apps, etc.), make your changes, and then Sync.
    If you do not have any changes, you can just hook up the phone and click on Sync.
    Hope this helps.
    Cheers,
