My wife registerd her i phone to my email address, now i have bought an i phone, how does she remove my details and create her own account

my wife has been operating her i phone from my i tunes account. I have just bought an i phone, how does she change my details and register her own phone with her own account.I would like to use my own email address!

Just to be clear, are you talking about the Apple ID that you use to purchase Apps in the App Store?

  • Wife wants her own account

    So we've been rockin' my iTunes account for … well, since ever, I suppose. Sharing is super easy; whatever I buy for my iPhone she gets for her iPod Touch. Get a great productivity app for my iMac from the Mac App Store, it appears on her Macbook Pro. And vice versa. So… many… books… It's all peaches and kittens over here!
    Recently (and we're talking last weekend, here), I upgraded my 3+ year old 3G to a 4S (hold your applause, please). I gotz Facetime now and all my apps actually work again. And, wait for it, Game Center! The wife's iPod has schooled my phone in everything but being able to make phone calls (through a cellular service). No more, I say!
    She now wants to have her own account so she can interact with me via Game Center as well as use Facetime and what have you. [NOTE: Odd thing about Facetime with our devices, currently. Because my phone has a number to call, she can initiate a Facetime session with me from her iPod—I, however, can not initiate as it always cycles back to the very phone I am using and, thusly, says I'm busy. Wacky!]
    Of course, she wants to keep all her books and the like that she's downloaded/purchased. I can only take so many health tracking apps… If she creates a new account, she'd lose all the shtuff. Tonight she made a Game Center account and quite a few items just vanished from her iPod.
    Is there anyway to transfer purchases from one account to another? My initial guess is "No" as the purchases are tied to one account; I am just not sure if there's some nifty transfer of sorts for this type of scenario.

    I'm afraid that you can't use this address. Aliases cannot be moved to another account, nor turned into a full account, and once deleted cannot be reactivated. Sorry; but you will have to create a new address when you open a new iCloud account for her.

  • My partner has lost her phone how does she get all the music pics back and into a new iPhone?

    My partner has lost her phone but how does she get her iTunes music that she has bought back onto her new iPhone?

    That won't do the trick. You really need the computer. That way all your data and files can be backed up when you backup the computer.
    Your only other option, which is much more limited, is using iCloud:
    iCloud- Backup and restore overview
    iCloud- Restore
    iCloud- Restore your iOS device from iCloud
    iCloud- iCloud Backup
    iCloud- Back up your iOS device to iCloud

  • My wife has iCloud on our computer and I want to break out and create my own account. Once I build the account how do I copy the address book from her account into mine?

    my wife has icloud on our computer and I want to break out and create my own icloud account. I've built the account but can't figure out how to COPY our joint address book onto my account so I can then weed out my own addresses. Please help!

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    When you log out of the joint account, you should be asked if you want to keep the contacts, you do. When you log into your new account you should be asked if you want to merge contacts, you do.
    If you have already signed into your new account and not taken these options, the simplest thing to do might be to add your wife's account back as a secondary account in system preferences > mail, contacts & calendars. In groups in address book you can drag contacts from your wife's contacts onto your contact group to copy them.

  • Husband with iCloud account and alias e-mail for wife. Now wife got her own account and wants her e-mail address.

    Hi there,
    i have an icloud account and punt an alias for my wife in there. ([email protected])
    Now she got her own iPhone and her own iCloud accout and would like to have her e-mail address on her own icloud account.
    I have deleted the alias but icloud still says the address is in use. Is there any way for her to get her own e-mail address on her account?! ([email protected])
    Do we just have to wait until icloud recognize that this address isn't an alias anymore?
    Ohh my god! I need help...please
    Regards
    Patrick

  • My Daughter has an Ipod and when I set up the account before giving her the gift for Xmas I set it up under my email address, now I have an iphone 4 and I want to have my own account for itunes. Is there any way 2 do this w/ two separate accts, same email

    My daughter got an Ipod for Xmas and I set up the apple account before hand & used my email address to set it up, now I have purchased an Iphone 4 and I want to have a separate itunes for my music.... is there a way to have two separate itunes accounts under the same email address?

    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.

  • Hello can someone help me I have an iphone 4 and my daughter has an ipod touch we are on the same email address but somehow with in the last 25hrs all of my contacts are gone and only hers on on my phone is there a way for me to get all my contacts back?

    If you need assistance with finding any of your restores or attempting to restore from any that happened prior to his incident follow this article
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1766
    IF you do find a backup that has your contacts; I'd /highly/ recommand turning off your wifi network after the restore is finished because if the issue is with your iCloud your contacts may merge back with her's.
    With iCloud you DO NOT want to share the account; bad things happen Evil evil thigns...
    But in all seriousness; if two devices have the same iCloud; iCloud is told to merge and sync infomation between hte two and can't tell that it doesn't belong to the same person

  • HT204053 My daughter and me use the same cloud ID and to buy songs and now all her contacts ended up on my new iphone 5  and I manually erased all from my phone and now they are gone from her phone.  How does she get back her contacts?

    My daughter and me use the same cloud and apple id to buy songs in the past.  I got first iphone 5 and after trying to set up itunes to phone I ended up with all my daughters contacts from her iphone on my iphone.  I then deleted them from my phone one by one and now they are gone from her phone as well.  How does she get them back on hers and what happen????  Help with cloud!

    That's what happens when you share the same iCloud account.  First, migrate his phone to a different iCloud account using a different ID (you can continue to share the same ID for other services such as iTunes if you want).  To do this, on his phone save any photo stream photos that he wants to keep to his 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 he are syncing notes with iCloud that he wants to keep, you'll need to open each of your notes and email them to him so he can later copy and paste the text into new notes created in his new account.  Then go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account (which only deletes it from this device, not from iCloud; this won't effect your phone), provide the password to turn off Find My iPhone and choose Keep on My iPhone when prompted.  Then sign back in with a different Apple ID to create his new account and choose Merge to upload the data.  After doing this, he can go to icloud.com and safely delete your data from his new account.
    Then, if your contacts were on your phone when you last backed it up to iCloud, you can restore them by following Winston Churchill's user tip here: https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-4841.  This involves turning off your wifi after your phone restarts during the restore process, then saving the contacts on your phone and deleting them from iCloud prior to turning your wifi back on and allowing the restore process to finish.  You can turn off your wifi either by pulling the cord out of the WAN port in your wifi router, or by simply unplugging it.

  • My wife and I share an iTunes account, if I create her own account can she still access all the music and apps we have purchased together over the years?

    My wife and I have been sharing an iTunes accound and library on our own iPods then iPhones for years without much trouble. Now, Mai ly because of the cloud and a new desktop, I think it's time to create her own account but I don't want to have to repurchase all her music and apps. Is this poosible?
    Thanks!

    Yes, with the credentials of the account that the media/content was purchased with.
    Content is permanently tied to the account it is purchased with and cannot be merged, moved, or transferred to another account.

  • I have a new iPad with wifi. When I send messages I can see my sons and my husbands but not my phone number.  We all have an iPad and all use the same apple ID as iPad the bill.  How can I remove their numbers and add mine?

    Add another e-mail account to your messages, so people could reach you on that e-mail from messages. As soon as you are online (if you have wifi only iPad) you are able to send and receive messages. i.e. your son can send you a messages from his iPhone addressing it to your (that additional) e-mail address.

    Hi,
    Are you talking about changing the Apple ID used for purchases in iTunes? If so go to 'Settings->iTunes & App Store-> then 'tap' on the Apple ID that appears and click Sign Out on menu that appears. You can now login with a different Apple ID.
    Regards,

  • TS1398 ipad 3: iOS7. My ipad has recently stopped receiving emails althought I can send. My wife has her own email on the ipad and that works fine as does my email on my laptop, can anyone help? Pete B

    Recently my ipad3 has stopped receiving emails although I can send, my wife has her own email address on the same ipad and works fine as does my email on my laptop, can anyone help?

    Thanks james, this seems to have cleared the problem, but still not sure what I might have done to cause it in the first place.

  • If I set up Family Sharing and add my wife, can she still make purchases on her own accountß

    I am considering setting up Family Sharing for may family. I would be the organizer. If I add my wife, would she still be able to make purchases on her own account, or would all purchases be made on my account?

    Purchases would be made to her apple account, but to your credit card. She can also add itunes gift card to her account (appleid) and her gift card will be charged first.

  • I have comcast as my email and my wife has uses the account with her own email address.  I have my address book and she has hers.  My problem is that my address book comes up on her ipad even when she's signed in to her account.

    I have Comcast as my IP.  My wife also uses my account with her own email address.  I have my address book and she has hers.  My problem is on her ipad, my address book comes up with her account.  Any ideas on how I can get her address book on her account?

    It sounds like you're both syncing with the same computer log-in so the sync mechanism thinks that you're one person.  You need to set up separate computer log-ins so that you have separate iTunes operation.
