  • One Itunes account for me and my wife

    I am trying to find out how I can have one itunes account for my phone and my wifes. Right now my phone shows my account and hers show her. Unfortunately we have always bought itunes stuff through her account. Can anyone help me or tell me where to go to find help?

    You can "share" iTunes content within the same household. That might be a better approach with two separate computers & iTunes accounts. The stuff on your wife's computer is grayed out, because by design you can sync iTunes content with the iPhone on ONE computer at a time. So, if you want to "share", do this:
    1. First disable auto-sync under Preferences>Devices in iTunes(under the edit menu if using Windows) on your computer.
    2. You sign out of iTunes & sign your wife in.
    3. Connect her phone...DO NOT SYNC!
    4. Store>Authorize this Computer.
    5. File>Transfer Purchases.
    6. Eject her phone.
    7. Sign her out, you sign back in.
    You can now sync and add whatever content you want to each device. Just remember, all app updates to any apps obtained with her account MUST be done by signing into iTunes using her account, update the apps in question, sign her out, you sign back in.
    That's all you have to do.

  • I currently have one iTunes account for my personal iPod Touch and for my work iPhone and iPad.  Can I create a separate account for work and keep my current account for my personal use - on the same computers?

    I have an iTunes account for my personal iPod Touch - have had for several years.  When my work provided me with an iPhone and now and iPad 2, they all fall under my personal iTunes account.  Is it possible for me to create a separate account for my work devices and apps, while leaving my personal account intact?  I use both my compter at home and at work to sync occasionally.

    A much simpler solution would be to go into Settings > Store and turn off Automatic Downloads

  • I want to create a new itunes account for myself and leave the current one for my wife. Is that possible?

    Ok. My wife uses itunes for her work and she has asked me to open my own account without erasing the one we currently have so that our music can be seperate. I have my own pc and sync to my own itunes program but our purchases still download to the same account and the money comes from the same account. Can I open a new account and not lose everything? Thanks!

    I hope this isn't too wordy but I want to be as clear and explicit as I can for you.
    You can't transfer purchases from one account to another account. Apple doesn't allow it.
    You can continue to use your daughter's Apple ID in order to continue to use the apps that you purchased with her ID and you will need to use her ID and password any time that you want to update those apps. What you do want to avoid is having to download any of those purchased apps again on any other devices - if you create a new Apple ID.
    If you create a new ID and then you sign into her ID in order to download a previous purchase-  you will lock yourself out of the new ID for 90 days and there is nothing that you can do about it. So as long as you do NOT download any past purchases with her ID - you will not lock yourself out of the new ID. So you can keep using the apps that were bought with her ID, you can also update those apps using her ID (you have to sign into her account in Settings>Store) but you can't download past purchases without messing things up with your new ID.
    When you download a past purchase with a different ID - you associate that device with the different ID for 90 days. This is one way that Apple hopes to cut down on pirating of apps - friends using other friends IDs in order to download apps without patting for them.
    This explains it in a little more detail.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4627
    The bottom line is that you can create a new ID, still use her ID - judiciously - but you really want to avoid downloading past purchases with her ID. Transfer all of those purchases into iTunes so that if something happens and you need the purchased content again, you can just sync it again rather than downloading it.
    This explains transferring purchases.

  • HT1911 My daughters ipod has been disabled and I just want to reset password for the ipod not itunes account.  We have one itunes account for all our devices (so I can control what they purchase).

    Why is itunes so difficult to navigate around?

    You will need to connect the iPod to a computer's iTunes, and you may need to put it into recovery mode : http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1808 - you should then be able to reset the iPod and restore / resync the content to it.
    If it's done via computer that it hasn't been synced to, and therefore doesn't have a backup on it, then from http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1212 :
    If you restore on a different computer that was never synced with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your data will not be present.

  • My wife and I have shared one iTunes account for 6  years.  We want to create our own Apple IDs, so when we sync to our new iMac we won't see each others contacts, photos, calendar, music, etc.  Is there a way to move music/apps from one ID to a new ID?

    No.
    One of you create a new AppleID and one use the existing AppleID.
    But you can still use the items in each iTunes library.
    Create separate computer logins for each of you.
    This will give you each your own data. Contacts, calendars, photos, etc. (and your own iTunes library).

    You can have one icloud account and a different itunes account on the phone. I have my icloud account and a shared itunes account. He does not have to use the new icloud account as is ID in itunes and app store. He can keep using the old one.

  • We have three Ipads in our house.  We have one itunes account with multiple devices like two Iphones and Apple TV.   My question is about our three Ipads.   How can I set up the imessaging and facetime on all three devices while only using one Itunes acct

    Okay.  We have three Ipads in our house with only one Itunes account.   When I go into imessaging and facetime on each of the devices, it wants to start switching my wife's cell phone and then the three emails associated with each Ipad to the contact information for all of the Ipads.    As of this morning, only the imessaging and facetime are turned on my wife's iphone and ipad.   My kids imessaging and facetime is turned off.     Do you really have to have an itunes account for each device to make then work???    Any help would be very much appreciated.
    Ryan

    There is only one solution. Each user must have their own separate user account. All of their respective data would be contained in their separate user accounts. This also means each will have a separate iTunes Library. If you all use the same third-party apps, then each will have to purchase their own copies under their own Apple IDs. Some data sharing is possible. See:
    iTunes- How to open an alternate iTunes Library file or create a new one
    iTunes- How to share music and video
    iTunes- How to share music between different accounts on a single computer
    iTunes- Setting up Home Sharing on your computer

  • My husband and I share the same e-mail address, and computer. We both have iPhones now and want to have our own individual Apple ids, but have one iTunes account is it possible?

    My husband and I share a computer, have the same e-mail address, and have one iTunes account. Can we have different Apple ids on our individual iPhones or do we have to use the same one?

    For purchasing from the iTunes and App stores, you will probably want to share the same Apple ID.  But for other services such as iMessage, FaceTime and iCloud, you should use separate IDs.  For example, if you use the same ID for iMessage you'll start getting each other's text messages.  If you use the same ID for FaceTime you may get each other's FaceTime calls.  If you set up the same iCloud account with the same ID, and data you sync with the account will be merged and the merged data will appear on all devices (i.e., you'll end up with each other's contacts and calendar events).  You would also be sharing the same 5GB of free iCloud storage rather than each having your own 5GB of space.

  • If two people use one computer, but we have separte itunes accounts, Apple ID, and icloud will my apps I get be stored in their account too since we are using the same computer?

    If two people share the same computer, but have separate itunes account, Apple ID, and icloud and one of them downloads an app will it also go into the other persons account since y'all use the same computer

    If you  have separate user accounts on the computer, then your downloaded apps are stored in your iTunes Library. See the following for dealing with having multiple users on the same computer: How to use multiple iPhone, iPad, or iPod devices with one computer.
    Using More than One iDevice on the Same Computer
    This applies mainly to couples who are adding another device and do not want their email, messages, etc. being duplicated on both devices. To begin read: How to use multiple iPhone, iPad, or iPod devices with one computer. You need to establish a separate Apple ID and password for whomever will use the new iDevice. See Apple - My Apple ID and Frequently asked questions about Apple ID. The easiest way is to do this on the computer using iTunes: iTunes- How to set up an Apple ID within iTunes.
    On the computer create a new user account for the person with the new iDevice. This will be the user account that person will always use. He/She will no longer use the other user account. This way that person will have a separate iTunes Library
    Start by transferring the new device(s) to a new account along with all your data.  Save any photo stream photos that you want to keep to your camera roll (unless they are already in the camera roll) by opening your Photos app, tap on Albums icon at the bottom. Now, tap on My Photo Stream album; tap Select; tap on the photos you want to select;, tap the share icon (box with upward facing arrow) in the lower left corner; then tap Save to Camera Roll.
    If you are syncing notes with iCloud that you want to keep then you need to open each of your notes and email them to yourself. Later you can copy and paste the text into new notes created in your new account.
    Tap on Settings > iCloud > Delete Account (only deletes it from this device, not from iCloud; the person keeping the current account will not be affected,) provide the password to turn off Find My Phone and choose Keep on My iDevice when prompted.  Sign in with a different Apple ID to create your new account. Choose Merge to upload your data.
    Once you are on separate accounts, you can each go to icloud.com and delete the other person's data from your account.

  • HT1203 Can I share one iTunes account for my iPad and two I phones? If so, how can I get the purchased apps and music on all three devices? Do I need a home computer,

    Can I share one iTunes account for my iPad and two I phones? If so, how can I get the purchased apps and music on all three devices? How do I sync all the devices to have the same music and apps?

    You can set up an iCloud account on each one (the SAME iCloud account using the same AppleID on each) and then sync via iCloud.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5262\
    However, an iCloud backup nor sync contains purchased content - that is available for redownload from the iTunes and App stores (so no need to waste iCloud space storing it for you).
    So, for purchased content, you will have to download it on each device - just use the same AppleID and download each item on each device.
    Without a computer to aid the sync'ing, downloading the purchased content on each device is the only way.
    P.S  audiobooks cannot be re-downloaded once purchased (all other content can be), so without a computer to save, store and move the audiobook files around, you will only be able to put those on one device - the one you first purchase it on.
