Your question is almost too much a personal one, begging the question "do we (husband and wife) feel comfy sharing one account on the Mac"   maybe thats why nobody answered you.
It doesnt complicate anything, but it adds steps for switching accounts on the Mac/ purchases etc. of course
since your question is mostly personal, ..I wont answer THAT part of it, but creating a new account is easy.....messing with switching back and forth is also a personal preference 'issue' as well.   I prefer to keep things simple, but...........you and yours,  I dont know.......

  • Have some kind of virus or trojan horse -- dozens of spam messages are being sent out from my PC. Is there anything I can do?

    The messages do not show up in my Sent folder. Many of them are sent to dead email addresses and the only way I know that this is happening is from the "failure to deliver" messages from the Mail Administrator.

  • I cannot send iMessages to all of my friends. They are being sent as text messages. Is it my phone's fault?

    I'm relatively new to Mac and want to try and get the most out of the new MacBook Air.
    My wife and I have been sharing the same Apple ID. We both have iPhones - she has a 5 and I've got a 4S.
    We only have one copy of iTunes and we have been sharing the account. (She doesn't really use the computer for anything beyond writing the odd weekend assignment.)
    Would I be better off setting her up with her own and making her as a separate user on the computer? Would this require much work?
    In recent times with updates, we have a few problems with the duplication of texts and that sort of thing. Both of our texts are stored on the computer and that sort of thing. Also, sometimes texts I send her are sent through to me  from her, if that makes any sense.
    Anyway, I don't really want to overly complicate matters when it comes to accounts etc, but I wanted to know if a fresh Apple ID would be the best thing or even a new user?
    Any tips etc would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks in advance

  • My wife and I have been using the same iTunes account, but would like to have separate apps on our phones.  How can I set up a separate account for her?

    My wife and I have been using the same iTunes account for both our iPhones, but she wants separate apps from mine.  How can I set up a second account in her name, delete the apps on her phone and start from scratch with just the apps she wants on her phone?

    If you have the old phone, connect it to iTunes, right click on the device, and choose transfer purchases.  If you no longer have the old phone, I don't believe there is a way to recover them, as they were on your original device.

    This is with iMessages only.

  • My wife and I have separate accounts on our desktop computer, each with a separate set of bookmarks. Is Sync account specific or will it try to merge bookmarks?

    My MacBook Pro is running Firefox and is synced via Firefox Home to my iPhone. I want to sync my bookmarks to our Dell desktop, but my wife and I have separate accounts with separate bookmarks/favorites. Can I sync with the bookmarks on "my side" without interfering with the bookmarks on "her side"?

    Yes, only the data in your Firefox Profile in your user account will be Sync'd on that Dell desktop.

  • How do my wife and I both share photos from our iphones to one mac via clouds photostream?

    My wife and I have seperate apple store id's, and we have one main mac desktop updated with lion and icloud.
    when I take photos on my iphone 4 it synchs and shows up via photostream to my mac desktop.
    When she takes a photo using her phone, it doesn't show up.  How do I sync her phone to be able to send via photostream to the same desktop?

    Decide which ID will be the primary iCloud ID. For example, I chose my iCloud ID to be the primary iCloud ID for both devices and the Mac to receive the Photostream.  (Since iCloud IDs dont cost anything - you could set up a new one just for this purpose - which would have the added advantage that the other iDevices will not be able to access the email for the primary iCloud ID)
    On your device (let's call it the primary) turn on iCloud and ahve all the toggles you require set to on.
    Delete the existing iCloud ID from your wife's device.
    Sign in to iCloud on your wife's device with your (or the newly created iCloud ID)
    On your wife's device turn OFF all the mail, calendar, contact toggles (so that your wife doesnt get all your personal content - emails, contacts, calendars etc) in the iCloud panel
    Create a new Mail account in the Mail, Contacts, Calendars on your wife's device with her iCloud ID so that she can receive email, calendars etc.
    On the Mac - use your iCloud ID as the primary iCloud ID. This will ensure Photostream content arrives.
    If your wife primarily uses this Mac - do the same set up performed on iDevice - ie turn off mail, contact, calendars in iCloud and create a new Mail Account in system preferences with the email address.
    Hope that helps

  • Since updating to OS5, my text messages are being sent as e-mails.  Also, my contacts do not show the people's phone

    Since updating my iPhone 4 to iOS5, it seems my texts are being sent as e-mails or in e-mail form. The person I am texting gets a phone number and not my name.  Also, when I click on contacts to text to, where it used to show the phone number and I would touch the number to text, it just shows the persons name, no phone#.
    Thanks for any help!
    Kerry

    Settings > Messages > Send and Received > Uncheck any number/email that does not belong to the device
    Note: The little blue (>) will give you an option to remove the number/email from the device
    Note: Check this setting on any device(s) using the same Apple ID

  • My wife and I have been with VZW for 10  years and for the last 7 we have had absolutely no service at our home. I refuse to pay to access by purchasing a signal booster because we already pay a "monthly access fee." VZW, as loyal customers, if you can't

    My question is clearly stated in the discussion description. I know we are not the only ones having this issue. But we refuse to double pay for service!

    See Our contract is due to end in Jan and we are considering switching providers. For the last 10  that we've been with Verizon, we've not been able to receive calls at our house where we spend most of our time so we are being charged for a service we are not
    same person, new account today
    I would not wait for a new tower after 7 years.   Find service that works at your house or get the extender. 
    From a different perspective, over 10 years you paid maybe $18,000 for service.  A cell tower costs $100,000 to $300,000 to build and $500 monthly fees.  Not very economical to build a tower for you. 

  • We have two iphone 4s on the same computer and after we did the ios6 upgrade the text messages are being sent to both phones. How do we stop this?

    My wife and I's iphone 4s' are both on the same computer.  When we did the new upgrade to ios6 it started sending text messages to both of us from each other.  For example I sent my wife a text "Hey" and then my phone received a message from Me "Hey."  Another example is that a friend sent my wife a text and both of us received it from that friend, but not in a group message. We both deleted our icloud account and the problem still happened.  Then we checked that we were both signed in to our own personal accounts for imessage and we were.  After turning off imessage the problem went away.  Any ideas on how to make imessage work without having it send messages to both of us?  

    I also have the same problem and changed the send & receive addresses . But it always seems to revert back to 2 addresses/numbers on the second , my wifes phone . Which isn't the best .

  • How do i access my itunes account? i lost my iphone months ago and now have been given a unlocked iphone. when opening itunes i cant see any of my music/apps etc. How do i bring them back? pls help

    How do i access my itunes account, i had an iphone with loads of music and apps. lost it but now i have a new one given to my by my gfriend.
    When i load up itunes and sign in none of my media is there in the libary. although i can see my previous purchases.
    Will my account have been frozen when it was lost by orange? How do i get all my stuff back into my libary so i cant sync with my new phone?
    pls help

    Apps and ibooks you should be able to re-download for free, assuming that they are still available in the store and you use the same iTunes account that you originally used to buy/download them : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2519 . Music bought from iTunes can only currently be re-downloaded if you are in the US, and I assume that you are in Carlisle here in England in which case you won't be able to re-download music.
    Have you still got the purchases on your computer, or on a backup that you can copy back onto the computer and then load into iTunes ?

  • Imessage is on but message is being sent as text and phone is not recieving imessages

    Over the past month since the ios 7.1 update I have been having imessage problems. With imessage enabled and utilizing wifi and cellular data, the phone will send out messages as texts to other iphones and not as imessages and i am not receiving imessages. Typically what happens is that the ellipsis (...) shows up as if there is a pending message but nothing ever comes through and on the other persons end who sent the message it says it was delivered. This happens very frequently and it is very frustrating as it has been occuring for over a month now. I have tried everything from restoring it and setting it up as a new phone, using a new apple id, got a replacement phone from apple, got 2 new sim cards from att, attempted every imessage trouble shoot I could find and yet the problem persists. Does anyone have any insight to this problem?

    Based on the limited information you provide, it could be:
    That person is not using an iOS device (iMessage will only send to Apple products)
    You are not using the registered receive address for iMessage
    iMessage is turned off on that person's device.
