How can I use iCloud to sync to just my account on my iMac and not to my husband's account?

I have an iMac using OS X 10.7.5.  I have separate accounts for myself and my husband.  I also have an iPhone and an iPad.  How do I get iCloud to sync my account with my iPad and iPhone without syncing with my husband's account on the iMac?

If you are  using the same AppleID you cannot, just create seperate AppleID's and you should be OK.

  • Bought a new Ipod for daughter for Xmas. How can I use ICLOUD to sync Itunes only to her IPOD

    Bought a new Ipod for daughter for Xmas. How can I use ICLOUD to sync Itunes only to her IPOD and not everything else on my iphone etc?

    On the iPod turn off iCloud for calender, contacts and other things (Settings>iCloud) and turn off automatic downloading for apps and books (Settings>Store).
    Aldso go to Settings Messages and Facetime and add her own email calling/messaging address and delete the Apple ID calling/messaging address.

  • How can I use Paypal only when I check the box "pay with Paypal" and not when I check "pay cash" or "pay on my bank account number"

    Hello,
    Thanks for your time if you can help me solving this problem.
    I have used Fromscentral for a long time now and it's really working fine but I can't find a solution for a simple problem I'll try to explain below.
    Ok, My students can check which subscription they want :
    1 art class 25€
    3 month subscription 250€
    6 month subscription 500€
    When they have made that choice (only one) they can proceed and pay by Paypal.
    But what happens if they want to pay their subscription at the studio in cash or if they want to wire the money on my bank account?
    Well, it's not possible to select either of those two options and by doing so inactivate Paypal.
    That's the problem.
    Thanks to let me know how to do this
    Phil

    Hi,
    In this scenario, I would suggest you to create another form for the cash and wire payments. This form can be embedded to the current form you have, students who wants to pay via cash or wire transfers; they can click on the link and fill their application separately.
    Unfortunately, it is not possible to disable Paypal; using the conditional form elements.
    Regards,

    You will need to setup a new Apple ID for your sister.  You have to have an Apple ID and iDevice connected and using that account to get an iCloud account.

  • How can I use iCloud-keychain if i can not find my country in the country code list?

    How can I use iCloud-keychain if i can not find my country in the country code list?

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    If your country code does not appear in the list…
    Go to System Preferences > iCloud > Keychain and enter your Apple ID password (Settings > iCloud > Keychain, from a mobile device)
    Select the ‘Create Different Code’ option. (Mobile devices only)
    Select the advanced option and choose whether to create a random code or no code, selecting the later allows syncing across devices but not with Apple’s servers.

  • HT4901 I have HughesNet with a capped amount of Internet capacity. How can I use iCloud but adjust the time it is on to conserve my Internet allowance and not have to backup my information all the time????

    I have HughesNet satellite for an ISP with a capped amount of Internet capacity. How can I use iCloud but adjust the time it is on to conserve my Internet allowance and not have to back up my information all the time?

    Thanks Roger W1,
    Yes, I was using iTunes to sync over cable without problems since orinigal purchase in 2011 and using 10.6 w/o problem. There was an "update" in Nov 2012 that crashed the sync service. I went to the Apple Store and reviewed the problem with the Geniuses there. It was discovered at that time that the update included mandated use of iCloud but enough of the un-updated code remained that he was able to patch functions to allow Microsoft Office to still sync over iTunes.
    This March (+/-) there was another "update" to 10.6 that totally destroyed the patch that was in place so there was no sync service available between Microsoft and iTunes what-so-ever. Then recently, because of some unknown process, all my notes, contacts, and calendars were erased in both my Apple utilities and Microsoft utilities.
    After many hours of frustration I was able to recover most of the information to the Apple utilities only, but those were unstable. At my visit to the Apple store it was suggested that an upgrade to 10.8 might solve the stability problem. That it did but being connected to the iCloud all the time keeps using up all my Internet time and I have nothing left to check emails or do research.
    This, to me, is not my problem but one created by Apple. I have searched the Internet and support groups and there doesn't seem to be a solution.
    The "aircraft mode" turns off all other communication functions and is not acceptable. Neither is disconnecting/turning off Airport on my MBP.
    Thanks,
    Jay

    I will address your second question.
    First, make sure your iPhone and iPad have absolutely identical Apple IDs.  If they do, use that Apple ID in Settings > iCloud on your iPhone to select the "Notes" option.  Lo and behold, all your iCloud notes should appear on your iPhone.

  • Can I use iCloud to sync two devices with different apples Ids?

    Can I use iCloud to sync two devices with different apple ID's

    What do you mean by "apple ID"?  There's an ID you can use at the iTunes store to buy songs, apps, etc.  there's an ID you can use for your iCloud account - the two can be different or the same. So which service are you referring to when you talk about an apple ID?

    If have separate iCloud accounts and want to keep your all your iCloud data separate, you can create separate user accounts for each of you, then sign into your individual iCloud account within your user account.
    If you want to just add both iCloud calendars on your Mac, you can sign into one iCloud account in System Preferences>iCloud, then add the second account in System Preferences>Internet Accounts>iCloud and only check Calendars with this second account.

  • HT201317 How do I use ICloud Photo stream on one computer with two differenet Apple Id's. My husband and I each have seperate ID's but one computer.

    How do I use ICloud Photo stream on one computer with two differenet Apple Id's. My husband and I each have seperate ID's but one computer.

    You have to have an iOS device (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) or Mac to create an iCloud account.  However, if you tell your friend to create a shared photo stream and turn on Public Website, he/she will then be able to send you a link that will allow you to view the photos on the internet using your web browser.  You would not be able to comment on the photos as this requires an iCloud account, but you would be able to view them.
    You can refer your friend to this link for assistance with this: http://help.apple.com/icloud/#mmc0cd7e99.

    Another option if you have access to a second Mac with a drive is to connect the two together with the iMac in Target Disk Mode,  Transferring files between two computers using FireWire, and installing from the Mac with the optical drive.
