I have two different 5s's with two different phone numbers but they are both using the same iCloud/apple account. After upgrading to iOS8 when I get a phone call on one phone both phones ring. One phone is for work and one is for private and I don't need both phones to ring from one call. It's bizarre.......is this supposed to be like this? If so where can I turn it off?? And while we are at it iOS8 has installed iBooks on both of my phones and iTunes won't let me uninstall it. I don't need or want iBooks on my phones.

Hi,
There are two easy fixes to this.
One, you can set up Family Sharing, in which you can have two different iCloud Accounts, yet still share the same apps, music, media etc.
Two, go to Settings and turn-off "Handoff". This can be found under the General page.
Hope this helps!

  • Hello.  I am about to migrate over to iCloud.  I don't think I see my situation addressed. I have one mobile me account and a separate appleID for purchases.   I have 4 devices and my wife has two. Right now they are all using the same mobile me account t

    I don't think I see my situation addressed. I have one mobile me account and a separate appleID for purchases.   I have 4 devices and my wife has two. Right now they are all using the same mobile me account to sync just the calendar and address book.
    1.)  I want to add email syncing for my 4 devices and email syncing for my wife's two devices separately, but we want to sync and share the same calendar and address book.  Is this possible?
    2.)  I also have 5 different calendars, one for work, one for home, one for... etc.  Is there a way to have different devices only sync certain calendars and not others or is it an all or nothing deal?
    Thanks in advance for any tips!

    To begin with, I would like to try to explain Apple's confusing nomenclature in regard to iCloud.
    Apple have called the whole cloud thing iCloud, there are a number of features under the iCloud umbrella, some of which require their own login. iTunes is one of these, another is what Apple have unfortunately also called iCloud.
    You can use the same Apple ID (account) to login to both iCloud and iTunes, but you don't need to and often users will login to each service using a different ID.
    The part that you need to remember is that the services available when you log into iCloud are completely different and unrelated to those when you log in to iTunes. Your iCloud login enables mail, contacts, calendars, find my phone, Back to My Mac, Documents & Data sharing and photosstream, it does not affect any of your iTunes services.
    To avoid confusion when discussing your problem, when I mention iCloud, I am referring to the services under the iCloud login, Whereas I will refer to the whole cloud thing as The Cloud.
    Generally speaking it is not a good idea to share an iCloud account between different people, it often results in contracts, calendars et cetera being deleted by others. Saying that however you can add secondary iCloud accounts to your devices at settings> mail, contacts, calendars. Secondary accounts do not have all the features of a primary account, but are often very useful. Because you can enable or disable each individual feature of an iCloud account, you can cover almost any situation by using secondary accounts.

  • HT5824 Can use you use the same icloud & itunes account with 2 different cell phone numbers?

    Yes. Two iDevices can share the same iTunes Library as long as both are configured to use the same Apple ID.

  • Hi all, I have four kids and they are all using the same itunes account.......Is there something I can do so they don't all see eachothers imessages?

    My kids are using 4 different ipods with the same itunes/apple account, Is there something I can for them to use facetime/imessages withouth seeing eachothers messages?  I mean set up different accounts for messages?

    - Create a NEW account using these instructions for each user. Make sure you follow the instructions. Many do not and if you do not you will not get the None option. You must use an email address that you have not used with Apple before.

    - Us the new ID for Settings>FaceTime and Settings>Messags>Send and Receive and Settings>iCloud. Continue to use the common ID for Settings>iTuns and App Stores.

    Hi printer Mike!
    I have a link here that can explain to you about iCloud and turning off features of iCloud:
    Change iCloud feature settings - iCloud Help
    http://help.apple.com/icloud/#/mmb1de40d9
    When you turn off an iCloud feature on a device, your up-to-date iCloud information for that feature is no longer available on it. In many cases when you turn off a feature, you’re asked whether you want your device to keep a copy of your information stored in iCloud for that feature. You don’t need to keep a copy if you have other devices set up for the same feature, because your information is still available on them. For example, if your iPhone and iPad both have Contacts turned on, you can turn off Contacts on your iPad without keeping a copy of your iCloud contacts on it, and still access those contacts on your iPhone. If you turn Contacts on again on your iPad, your latest contact information reappears on it automatically.
    Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities. Have a good one!

    Hi iCloud is Making Me Go Crazy,
    You will need to create a new Apple ID for your GameCenter and iCloud services.  You can continue to use the current Apple ID you share with your Mom for access to iTunes Store purchases if you wish.

  • Me and my partner are currently using the same apple id and have no space left on our devices. We are currently waiting on the iphone 6 plus to arrive and don't know how to transfer all data to the new phones.

    Me and my partner are currently using the same apple id and have no space left on our devices. We are currently waiting on the iphone 6 plus to arrive and don't know how to transfer all data to the new phones.?

    I don't know if I'm asking this all in a way that can be understood? Thanks ED3K, however that part I do understand (in the link you provided!)
    What I need to know is "how" I can separate or rather create another Apple ID for my son-who is currently using "my Apple ID?" If there is a way to let him keep "all" his info on his phone (eg-contacts, music, app's, etc.) without doing a "reset?') Somehow I need to go into his phone's setting-create a new Apple ID and possibly a new password so he can still use our combined iCloud & Itunes account?
    Also then letting me take back my Apple ID & password, but again allowing us (my son and I) to use the same iCloud & Itunes account? Does that make more sense??? I'm sincerely trying to get this cleared up once and for all----just need guidance from someone who has a true understanding of the whole Apple iCloud/Itunes system!
    Thanks again for "anyone" that can help me!!!

  • HT4137 I have two iPad's that use the same iTunes/store account. I want the two devices to play games with with other, but it recognizes them as the same. I have set up two different iCloud accounts, but still not recognizing the users as different. What

    Hello, I have no idea if my question went out, so I'll post it again. I have two iPads (one 3rd gen and one 4th) that use the same iTunes/store account. I want the two devices to game with each other, but the apps recognize them as the same. I have created two different iCloud accounts in an attempt to differentiate between the two, but no luck. How can I continue to use the same iTunes/store account for music and movies, but also have the two devices recognize each other for games?

    You can share your iTunes ID and still have separate iCloud accounts with separate IDs, they don't have to be the same.  If you kids don't already have an iCloud account, have them set up separate accounts on their devices using separate IDs.  If they are already sharing your account, migrate their devices to separate accounts.  To do this, start by saving any photo stream photos they wish to keep to ther camera roll (unless already there) by opening your my photo stream album, tapping Select, tap the photos, tap the share icon (box with upward pointing arrow), then tap Save to Camera Roll.  If they are syncing notes with iCloud, you'll need to open each of your notes and email them to them so you can later copy and paste the text into new notes created in their new account.  Then go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account (which only deletes it from thier device and won't effect your device), choose Keep on My iDevice and provide the password to turn off Find My iPhone (if using iOS 7).  Then sign back in with a different Apple ID to create their new account and choose Merge to upload the data.  Once everyone is on a separate account you can go to icloud.com from your computer, sign into each account separately and delete your data from their account.

  • Can you have different I cloud accounts on different devices. Like 4 phones with different numbers while keeping them all on the same I tunes account?

    Can you have different I cloud accounts on different devices. Like 4 phones with different numbers while keeping them all on the same I tunes account? My family shares one I tunes account but it would be nice to be able to have a different I cloud for family member. Is there a way to do this. Because the I cloud part on the setting on the phone and I pad are greyed out on the phones so you can't change the user.

    If they are greyed out then usually this means that the account is not validated on that device.  The Delete Account button at the bottom should still work and allow you to remove the current account form the iCloud Section of Settings.
    To answer your question, yes.  There are four places you can use an Apple ID on an iOS device:
    Settings > iCloud
    Settings > Messages
    Settings > FaceTime
    Settings > iTunes & App Stores
    The iTunes & App Stores is the only one you want to use a shared (family) Apple ID account.  The other three you will want a unique Apple ID for that person to prevent info merging or messages getting shared, etc.

  • I have update my iphone 4 and my Mums they both use the same apple id and are both backed up to icloud now her contacts are on my phone.

    Hi I updated my iPhone 4 and my Mum's iPhone 4 to software version 5.0. They both use the same apple id and they are both backed up to iCloud. Once I updated my mum's phone i noticed that her contacts are now on my phone i deleted some of them but then she noticed that they had been deleted off her phone to. Has anyone got any ideas please. 

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    Your password for logging into iCloud cant be different than your password for your Apple ID if you use that Apple ID to log into iCloud, it sounds as though you are using 2 accounts.

  • I lost my Iphone 3GS. My brother has given me his Iphone 4 now. We both use the same notebook to update and sync our phones. I would like to know how can i reconnect back to my account using the Iphone which was previous used by my brother.

    If you are saying that you both have iCloud accounts and use the same icloud ID, then yes, the contacts will be deleted.  The idea is that all devices using the same icloud ID are kept in sync.  You need to use different IDs.  You can keep the same iTunes ID so you can share the songs and apps.  But use different icloud IDs.

  • Unlinking two iPhones that are currently using the same Apple ID

    My parents accidentally used the same Apple ID for both of their iPhones. How can I unlink their accounts and create two different, unique Apple IDs for each of their iPhones? And without losing what is currently saved to the iCloud (some of the info saved is for business). I appreciate any help. When I create a new ID for one device it messes up the other one. Thanks!

    Apple IDs are used in several different ways on an iPhone. You can have different Apple IDs for different functions. For example, if you use the same iCloud ID for both phones they will both be trackable by logging in to icloud using that ID, and they will both be protected by Activation Lock with the same ID. They will also both get the same email and back up to the same iCloud account. Or these can be different. Your choice.
    The iTunes & App stores can have the same or a different Apple ID. If they have the same then you don't have to pay for apps twice; once an app is purchased it can be used by all devices on that account (there are licensing restrictions that limit sharing to a single family all at the same address).
    Facetime and iMessage can have yet a third Apple ID. This is really a good idea, as it keeps everyone's messages private.
