I have two Iphones with different email addresses sharing one Apple ID. Will that cause problems with using messaging and FaceTime?

I have two Iphones 5 with different email addresses sharing one Apple ID account.Both are using IOS 8.
I would like to set up a new Apple Id for one of the phones and remove it from the old account.
If I do that, can I move all of the purchased apps and songs to the new Apple account?
Also, will sharing one Apple ID account with two devices cause problems with using messaging and FaceTime?

Sharing an iCloud account between two devices can be done without causing issues with iMessage and FaceTime, just go into Settings for each of these functions and designate separate points of contact (i.e. phone number only, or phone number and unique email address).  While that works, you'll then face the problem where a phone call to one iPhone will ring both if on the same Wi-Fi network -- but again, that can be avoided by changing each phone's settings.
Rather than do all that, don't fight it -- use separate IDs for iCloud.  You can still use a common ID for iTunes purchases (the ID for purchases and iCloud do not have to be the same) or you can use Family Sharing to share purchases from a primary Apple account.

  • If I install the update to Adobe Reader 10, will that cause problems with Acrobat Pro 9?

    Firefox (version 15.0.1) is telling me I need to install an update to Adobe Acrobat 9.4 in order to view pdf files in my browser. I use Acrobat Pro 9. The update is actually Adobe Reader 10, and I am wondering if I install this, will it cause problems with my version of Acrobat Pro?
    Because I am not sure if this is so, I have temporarily disabled the plug-in and now pdf files download automatically rather than display in my browser. I would prefer they open in my browser but do not want to upgrade to Acrobat X.
    My OS is Windows Vista. I did not include the "troubleshooting information" file because I'm not sure what specific info is being requested.
    Thanks for any help.

    Hi WMdotcom
    did you try to view pdf with your acrobat pro 9 ?

  • Hello, I want to perform a simple task. I have two Adobe ID accounts linked to two different email addresses. One account i do not want to use anymore but it is linked to my main email account. the account i do not want anymore is still in its free stage

    Hello, I want to perform a simple task.I have two Adobe ID accounts linked to two different email addresses. One account i do not want to use anymore but it is linked to my main email account. the account i do not want anymore is still in its free stage and i have not purchased anything with it. My other Adobe ID account is linked to an email i rarely use and don't particularly want to use. i have tried changing the linked email account to my regular one i use. But it obviously does not allow me because of it already being linked to my other non used obsolete Adobe ID account. Is there any solution to this?? Please help.

  • HT201342 I would like to transfer an icloud email address from one apple id to a different apple id.  Is this possible?

    How can I transfer an icloud email address from one apple id to another apple id?

    It isn't possible.  If you need to use a different iCloud account with a different ID as your primary iCloud account, you can still set up your other iCloud address as a secondary account by going to Settings>Mail,Contacts,Calendars>Add Account>iCloud, signing in with your ID and turning Mail to on.  It will be fetch rather than push email, however, as push is only supported in the primary account.

    Thanks.  These drivers are for the audio, etc. for a dell laptop I purchased used.  ( Needed something cheap for a training video that would only run on Windows.  Tried Emedia player but picture was too fuzzy.)  Dell support said I should contact Apple support for instructions on how to get the drivers onto the jumpdrive.  Any tips on doing that?

  • Accept iCal invites with different email addresses?

    Hi there
    I receive calendar invites through a variety of different email addresses. I can only accept/save the invite to iCal (not a Google calendar for instance). Invites won't save to a stipulated calendar, only the default one.
    I cannot notify acceptance of an invite unless it has come to an Apple email address, so work and personal email addresses show that I have been invited but the caledar does not recognize alternative addreses and as a result I cannot confirm acceptance.
    Is there anyway to configure iCal to recognize multiple adresses or is there another application that you can suggest that works with multiple addresses?
    Many thanks for looking.

    At what stage does it change? What happens if you start the email with a capital? What happens if you select the address from the pop-up? What happens if you drag the address across from Address Book?

    If you used this email address as an Apple ID to buy content; music, videos, apps, etc., then that is the only Apple ID that can be used with that content as far as updating or redownloading.

  • This morning I changed my Apple ID to my new email address.  I thought it meant that I could then use all my alias icloud email addresses with my new Apple ID because it would be the same account.  Why am I now not getting email to those addresses.

    This morning I changed my Apple ID to my new email address.  I thought it meant that I could continue to use all my alias icloud email addresses with my new Apple ID because it would be the same account.  Since then I have not received and new emails to my iCloud email addresses.  Normally I get at least  7 new emails a day, so I'm pretty sure my iCloud addresses are not working.  It would be a lot of work for me to notify a lot of people, companies, and organizations about new email addresses, so I really would like to make them work.  Will it be possible to make them work with my new Apple ID?

    Roger, I didn't know that "Delete Account" was synonymous with "log out".  Yes, I had deleted my iCloud account in my iPad email settings more than once yesterday and again one more time after I read your reply.  I then followed the instructions below to log off on my Windows PC.  I found these when I searched for how to log off of iCould:
    1- Go to www.iCloud.com
    2- Sign in with your current login info
    3- Click on your user name on top right corner
    4- Select account setting
    5- Select "Advanced."
    6- Click 2nd option, "Sign Out Of All Browsers."
    I also scanned settings for all the other apps on my iPad and changed a couple that still had my old sbcglobal email address. Later, I noticed that I was able to see my old previous iCloud emails in iCloud.com, and the couple of messages that I received from this Support Community site, but still no new emails.  Suddenly the emails started rolling in again this morning.  I have 7 new ones at the moment.  I sort of expected to get a backlog of emails from yesterday, but something tells me those were all lost as "undeliverable".  I don't know who or exactly what did the trick, but the issue seems to be fixed.  I'm using my new Apple ID, and I'm glad I don't have to get all new iCloud alias email addresses after all.

  • I have two iphone 5 when I text from one to the other the text shows up on both phones How do I stop this

    I have two I phone 5's( one is my girlfriends). We shared one apple ID. When I updated one of the phones to 7.1 I started recieving her text and she is receiving mine. Also when I text here it shows up on my phone as a text to myself and also on her phone. I tried to create a seperate apple id for her phone to resolve the issue but that hasnt helped. Any suggestions would be appriciated

    My wife and daughter had the same problem. Make sure the Send/Receive setting under Messages in the General section of Settings has the correct, and ONLY 1, apple id. Good Luck.

  • Multiple email addresses for one Apple ID?

    Hello,
    I'm wondering how to add more than one email address to my Apple (ID) account.
    The main reason is because when I login to FaceTime with my Apple ID (email address), it then asks me which email I wish to use with FaceTime.
    Well, obviously I'm only given one choice (my Apple ID which is an email address)... so I'm curious how I can add multiple emails to one Apple ID account.
    This seems to be possible since after I login to FaceTime, it's asking me which email address to use (and only one email, my Apple ID, is presented as an option, since I don't know how to add another email to the same account).
    I do not wish to create another Apple ID.
    Thanks!

    (1) Use the FaceTime > Preferences menu command.
    (2) If you see the words "Preferences" and "Accounts" at the top right of the FaceTime window,
       click on "Preferences".
    You should see the words "Preferences" and "Done" at the top right of the FaceTime window.
    (2) Click on "*Add Another Email...*" and enter the "multiple" email.

    I need help setting up my daughters iPod. She has been using her iPod touch for 6 months using my ID. This caused a problem now that she is a bit more savvy and has learnt to message and FaceTime. I get her calls and she gets mine. I have set her up her own ID with iCloud but when I go to settings for FaceTime and messaging I can't erase my ID. So the problem is not really solved. She will have to access iTunes through me as she doesn't know my password and any games etc have to pass the mummy test. Can anyone help?

    Thanks.  I have my iPad on my lap and her iPod in my hand. We can FaceTime each other but it won't let either of us message each other. I know mine is activated as I use it frequently. I have activated hers as well. Maybe I will put it in the too hard basket for tonight, sleep on it and try again tomorrow.
