TS4020 Is there a way to copy or transfer contacts from one icloud account to another?

My wife and I just upgraded from the 4S to the 5C, but apparently we were using the same icloud account, and now we need to separate them so that we can make changes and not have it affect the other phone.

To migrate your wife's phone to a new account, start by saving any photo stream photos whe wishes to keep to her camera roll (unless already there) by opening her my photo stream album, tapping Select, tap the photos, tap the share icon (box with upward pointing arrow), then tapping Save to Camera Roll.  If she only wants to migrate a copy of the contacts and not other data, go to Settings>iCloud on her phone, turn Contacts off, choose Keep on My iPhone, then scroll down and tap Delete Account (which only deletes it from this device, not from iCloud; your phone won't be effected by this) and choose Keep on My iPhone and provide the password to turn off Find My iPhone when prompted.  Then sign back in with a different Apple ID to create her new account and choose Merge to upload the data to the new account.
If she wants to migrate a copy of all of the iCloud data to her new account, and is syncing notes with iCloud that she wishes to transfer to the new account, you will need to open each note and email them to her so she can later copy and paste the text into new notes created in her new account.  Then go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account, choose Keep on My iPhone and provide the password to turn off Find My iPhone when prompted.  Then sign back in with a different Apple ID to create her new account and choose Merge to upload the data to the new account.  Once you are both on separate accounts you can each go to icloud.com and delete the other person's data from your account if you need to.

  • How to copy contacts from one icloud account to another?

    I need to transfer most contacts on my icloud account to my wife's icloud account, and I was wondering if there's a "copy and paste" way to do it. Manually coping each contact would be too time consuming. I could sign on to the icloud on her iphone, and all the contacts would appear, but I really don't want her to use my Icloud account. And when I tried  to sign off from her phone, all the contacts disappeared.
    So I thought the easiest way is to copy contacts on my icloud from a pc, then paste them to her account. Is this feasible?

    Might be easiest to export (via File, Export) a vcf file,  with all contacts  and then import into your wife's contacts app (via File, Import).

  • How do I copy an address book from one user account to another?

    How do I copy an address book from one user account to another?

    You haven't understood me. Follow these steps:
    1. Log in the user where are the files you want to transfer, and open a Finder window.
    2. In Finder, select Go menu (on the menu bar) > Go to Folder, and type /Users/Shared. Now you're on Shared folder, so leave that window.
    3. Open a new Finder window without closing the old one, go to the folder with the files you want to transfer, and copy them to Shared folder.
    4. After copying the files to Shared folder, go to  > Log Out, and log in the other user.
    5. Repeat the step 2, and you will get access to the transferred files. Now, you can open them directly from this folder, or you can copy them to a folder on your user folder

  • Is there a way to copy e-mail contacts from PC to address book on IMac without manually putting in each address?

    I am  trying to copy my e-mail contacts from my hotmail account to my address book on the Imac.  I have copied all contacts to a thumb drive (zip drive) to transfer to the address book, however, I can not find any information on how to copy from thumb drive to address book.  Is there a better way to do this?

    Addressbook will understand vCard file format.

  • What are the ways to Copy Firm Planned Order from one ASCP Plan to another?

    We run two EDD Plans with very similar options, but with different plan horizons.
    To have the suggestions synchronized, we need to copy the "Firm Planned Orders" from one plan to another.
    We tried inserting the records in MSC_ST_SUPPLIES with Order type 5 and firm planned type 1 with appropriate plan id, but Planning ODS Load is not considering those inserted records.
    We don't want to insert directly into MSC_SUPPLIES.
    Any inputs is appreciated.
    Thanks

    You can also call a custom DTSX package in SSIS via the datamanager.
    there are at least 5 ways of transfering data in BPC between apps.
    1. Through the front end (excel etc) via evdre/evsnds
    2. Through Script logic using *Dest App
    3. Using BPC's standard export dtsx package via DM
    4. Using SSIS using BPC's custom SSIS tasks
    5. Through Script logic using stored procs.
    i am sure people will come up with more.
    remember if you use ssis and move data into any table but the wb, you need to process the cube afterwards.

  • Is there anyway to transfer purchases from one Itunes account to another?

    So I have had an itunes account since I was about 13. So the email I used for it was a really old one. I'm older now and I have a new email account that I used for everything. I don't check the old one, and I may forget the password to the old email account which would then cause a problem if I forget my apple ID. So is there any way to take all the songs and apps I have accumulated over the years and put it on to my new email? Any suggestions would help.

    Not automatically, unless of course you buy your music from Apple.

  • Can you copy music and apps from one iTunes account to another?

    My nephew got an iPod touch for Christmas and for some reason my husband decided to add it as a new device to my iTunes account and purchased games and music and put these onto the iPod.  So now he has access to my password, etc.
    What I really want to do is set up a new iTunes account for my nephew, but will I be able to transfer his games and music purchased under my account onto his new account or will we lose them all?

    This Apple article will walk you through changing the Apple ID -> iOS: Changing the signed-in iTunes Store account
    And this one will walk you through creating a new account -> iTunes: How to set up an iTunes Store account (Apple ID)
    You won't be able to transfer the apps to the new account, you'll have to purchase them again with the new account.

  • Is there a way to copy non-contiguous words from a PDF

    Is there a way to copy non-contiguous words from a PDF?  Is there a way to use a template or mask that will isolate certian areas to be copied with spaces in between the words so that when you go to paste the contents into multiiple fileds, the separate words will pop into the appropriate fileds.  The fields will be in a submission form.
    Please let me know if this is possible.
    Thanks

    No it's not.

  • HT4436 is there a way to change the apple ID on an Icloud account? I used to share everything with my daughter but she's old enough we need to separate the accounts.. I would like to "give" the ICloud account to her, because all of her games are on it.

She has her own Apple ID but since all her games are on this ICloud account, I would like to give it to her and start my own.

    You can migrate your device and a copy of the iCloud data to a new account.  To do this, start by saving any photo stream photos you wish to keep to your camera roll (unless already there) by opening your my photo stream album, tapping Select, tapping the photos, tap the share icon (box with upward facing arrow, then tapping Save to Camera Roll.  If you are syncing notes with iCloud, you'll need to open each of your notes and email them to yourself so you can later copy and paste the text into new notes created in your new account.  Then go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account (which only deletes it from this device, not from iCloud; your daughter's device won't be effected by this), choose Keep on My iPad and provide the password when prompted.  Then sign back in with a different Apple ID to create your new account and choose Merge to upload the data.
    Once you are on separate accounts you can each go to icloud.com and delete the other person's data from your account.
    The existing iCloud email account cannot be moved to your new account so you will need to give your contacts your new email address if you are giving the account to your daughter.

  • Is there a way to move multiple Calendar items from one date to another?

    Hello. I have far too many Calendar items every day in my iCal. Until I finally pare them down to a reasonable level, I need to "reschedule" all of my unfinished ToDo items and reminders, to another day, later in the week.
    There doesn't seem to be any "Select All" feature available.

    Just updated our iPad2 to iOS 7, and all my photos in camera rolls are gone, can't locate them anywhere. Were they just deleted, or is there a way to find them? Did not have iCloud account, so not backed-up there.

    We're you backing up to a computer using iTunes? If so, restore the backup from there.

    Yes.  First click on this icon:
    Now select the line drawing icon:
    Now press a shift key and drag your mouse on the image to draw a straight line.
    These instructions are for Windows system so you need to adapt the method for Macs.  I can't afford to by an Apple Mac!!!!!
    Good luck.

  • Is There a way to move an email list intact from one BC account to another

    Is There a way to move an email list intact from one BC account to another without any data loss or need for further formatting?

    I'm afraid you can't do this. You can't delete an iCloud account, and even if you delete an alias you still can't move it to another account or turn into an ID.

  • How to copy the Pricing conditions from one Distribution Channel to another

    Generally we use VK11 transaction to create conditional records .
    but I Need to Know whether is it Possible to copy the Pricing conditions from one Distribution Channel to another with same name and same internal Characteristics .
    Since we have around 70+ of Condition type with different parameter Sequence.So Instead of Going for BDC whether is there any standard Funct Modules/programs/BAPIs to do this?
    How to make a copy Condition types from One Distribution Channel to another.
    since SAP has already provided to copy conditions from Customer to customer.
    Likewise i need to know whether SAP is facilitating for these feature also.
    Iam Dubious in this issue.
    Hope Fully looking for the answers.
    Harish.N

    - IDOC_INPUT_COND_A (you can create IDOC, but also call directly)
    - call transaction / batch input (use transaction XK15, as used by LSMW)
    - use group of function modules RV_CONDITION_COPY, RV_CONDITION_SAVE, RV_CONDITION_RESET + commit.
    if you search SDN on 'RV_CONDITION_COPY' you'll find more info I believe.
    Someone mentioned BAPI_PRICE_CONDITIONS as well.
