TS2755 I have an 11 yr old and want to use the same apple id because I don't want to allow her an email address now. Is there a way to still use IMessage or does it connect all texts to both phones? How about pics? Thank you.

I have an 11 yr old who I want to use my apple id on our Iphones jointly. We do not want her to have an email address currently because of some issues. Anyway, does both phones being connected to the same apple id mean that when IMessage is used that we both get the same messages? Also, what causes our pics to each other not to go through the system? Thank you for any assistance!

IF both devices have the same Apple ID signed in ; it will believe the devices are meant to both recieve them. My biggest recommandation is you can create an email address for your daughter and in the future when she gets her own email address she can chang ethe primary email address to the up to date one.

  • HT204053 My husband and I both have iPhones but we only have one iPad. We use the same apple ID because we also share the same email address. How would this work with iCloud because we don't share the same contacts?  Thanks Elainecontacts

    My husband and I both have an iPhone and we share an iPad. We also share the same email address so how would this work with iCloud because we don't share all the same contacts?
    Thanks

    An icloud account is designed to be used by one user.  That user can have all his/her devices synced with the same Apple data (email, contacts, calendars, notes, reminders, etc.) .  When two people use the same account, then problems usually occur when one user edits data that the other user doesn't want changed on their device.  You can continue sharing the same ID for the itunes account in order to share the purchased music, apps, etc.  itunes accounts and icloud accounts are different.
    It's by far better that each user has his/her own icloud account.

  • HT4436 can I have a second icloud account for my spouse and use the same apple account

    I was trying to find out if it is possible to set up a second icloud email account for my wife and both use the same apple ID so we can share bought apps without her receiving all of my calander notices, email alerts etc?

    Yes, you can delete your account from settings > iCloud.  Your data will be stored in your personal account (simply choose to delete all information from your iPad when prompted). Then make a new one (again, settings > iCloud) making an account for your class.  When you are done in the classroom, delete the iCloud account again and login with your personal account  When prompted, always delete the information.
    Kind regards,

  • In OSX 10.8, can I use the same apple id to get updates for iPhoto and iMovie?

    Hi, so there are several sites that I work at that have multiple OSX 10.8 devices. I was wondering if there was a way that I can use the same apple ID to update iPhoto or iMovie? Apparently its needed for updates now. Alternatively, is there a way that I can do basic updates with out putting in an apple ID? A few dozen is no problem, but there are more than that which need to be updated. And frankly, its becoming a pain.

    You may only do that on machines you own. Other users must have their own Apple IDs and purchase the software for themselves. If these are enterprises, then contact Apple. They have special programs for enterprise purchasing.

  • Hi, I have an old iphone 3 and for Xmas received an iphone 5. I have 2 apple ID accounts, one on each phone, for me to be able to transfer messages, fotos, contacts etc from the iphone 3 to 5 do I have to be using the same Apple ID account?  Many thanks.

    hi everyone, first time using this forum!
    I have an old iphone 3 and for Xmas received an iphone 5. I have 2 apple ID accounts, one on each phone. For me to be able to transfer messages, fotos, contacts etc from the iphone 3 to 5 do I have to be using the same Apple ID account?  Many thanks.

    You should only use one Apple ID for both phones.  All apps that you bought for your 3 are linked forever to the Apple ID used to buy them.  If you set up your iPhone 5 as a new phone, rather than restoring from a backup of the 3, you will lose the messages, but you can sync to get the pix, contacts and music.  It is safer to do it as a new phone, because sometimes restoring a backup from an earlier version of the phone can cause problems in the new phone (as told to me by an Apple store "genius" two days ago.)

  • My husband and I both have facetime on our laptops. I believe we both are using the same apple id. Does he have to have a seperate apple id so we can use face time?

    My husband and I both have facetime on our laptops. I believe we both are using the same apple id. Does he have to have a seperate apple id so we can use face time?

    I believe you can manage your laptops with one Apple id, but I recommend that you have individual Calling ID's for each laptop.  This calling ID is under the "You can be reached for calls at:"  line when your in Facetime preferences. This will allow you two guys to call each other on your laptops, plus you don't have to be bothered by people calling him, or visa versa.

  • My friend bought the Lion upgrade for her MacBook.  She would also like to upgrade her desktop Mac which is current running Leopard.  Does she have to buy SnowLeopard for her Mac first?  Both computers use the same apple ID and password.

    My friend bought the Lion upgrade for her MacBook.  She would also like to upgrade her desktop Mac to Lion which is currently running Leopard.  Does she have to first buy a SnowLeopard upgrade for her desktop?  And will the upgrade from SnowLeopard to Lion then be free?  Both computers use the same apple ID.

    She would also like to upgrade her desktop Mac to Lion which is currently running Leopard.
    She needs to purchase Snow Leopard but she can re download Lion on the desktop for free after Snow Leopard is installed.
    And definitely use the same Apple ID to download Lion on the desktop.

  • I found My iPhone contacts on my friends Iphone we both have 4s! But we use the same apple ID and ICloud ID! How can undo what happened? all my private stuff is now on his phone!!! help me plz!!?

    Of course if you are both connected to the same iCloud account you have the same contacts - what did you expect?. The contacts live on the server and are read from there by the devices; so as you've both managed to sync your contacts up to iCloud they are now inextricably mixed. You can only delete your contacts by deleting individual ones, and doing that will delete them from your phone as well.
    You can only unravel this by
    1. In the iCloud contacts page at http://icloud.com, select all the contacts, click on the cogwheel icon at bottom left and choose 'Export vCard'.
    2. Sign out of System Preferences>iCloud
    3. Create a new Apple ID and open a new iCloud account with it for your own use.
    4. Import the vCard back into the iCloud contacts page.
    5. Go to http://icloud.com and sign in with the original ID. This is now his ID. Work through the contacts individually deleting the ones you don't want him to have. When done sign out and advise him to change his password.
    6. Go to the new iCloud account and delete his contacts individually.
    Of course if you have also been syncing calendars and using the same email address there are problems with doing this.

  • 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!!!

  • HT201272 I have always had and used the same Apple ID, so where are the rest of the songs I bought from itunes? I've bought at least 400 songs and I only am being able to download 178. Where are the rest of my purchases?!

    I have always had and used the same Apple ID. I have changed credit card information on my Apple ID account several times though. Does that make a difference when downloading past purchases? I'm very angry at Apple and Itunes because I have been using itunes since 05/2005 and I do not have even close to the amount of songs and albums that I have purchased from itunes. If the credit card info does make a difference even though the account is the same one then itunes needs to make sure to notify users of this because I am not the only one who is wondering this same thing. I have numerous friends who i've talked to about this and they say the same thing, that they too have songs purchased in the past that have disappeared when trying to download past purchased items. It should not make a difference. $12 is $12. Especially since I have ALWAYS used the same account. If itunes does not change their ways, I will not be purchasing songs or anything else for that matter from them ever again. I will go back to buying CDs where I KNOW that it will always be with me and I don't have to deal with this. I will also make sure to find a better more reliable source to download music from and will make sure everyone I know and come in contact with knows what it is and how much better it is than itunes. There should be no experation date on the music I PURCHASE, nor should there be any other little loop holes that allow itunes to rob us of rightfully purchased products. What's the deal itunes??

    There should be no issues. Its designed to work like that.  You don't change Apple IDs just because you get a new device.

    Is there any chance that the phones can fall out of sync?
    Unlikely. But nothing is impossible.   Though I don;t see how that would happen. As long as both are signed into the Same Apple ID / iCloud Account they will be N'Sync. (Bad Joke)

    If I get a message or buy an app or take a photo on the iPhone 5, how do I get those things onto the iPhone 6?
    If you buy an App, you have 2 ways to get it to the iPhone6: If Automatic Downloads is enabled in Settings->iTunes & App Store, it will automatically download to the iPhone 6 when you buy it on the 5 and vice versa if you buy it on the 6, it will download to the 5.
    Alternatively, you can simply go to the App Store App->Updates->Purchased and look for the App there and download it. Purchased Apps will not require payment again. i.e They'll be free to download to the iPhone 6 once purchased.
    SMS Messages will sync over using Continuity as long as they are on the same Wifi network. Otherwise, restoring the iPhone 5 backup to the iPhone 6 will transfer all messages received up until the backup was made onto the iPhone 6.
    Images, can be transferred either through Photo Stream
    My Photo Stream FAQ - Apple Support
    Or any Cloud service you want such as Dropbox, or One Drive.

    Also, something i forgot to ask initially: Should I update the iPhone 5 to iOS 8 first or does that not matter?
    If you want the Continuity features as explained above you need to update the iPhone 5 to iOS 8. Otherwise its not all that important.

  • HT204053 Hi, my husband has downloaded ios7 and now he is receiving my iMessages/facetime calls.  Obviously we both use the same apple Id.  How do i keep using the same apple id on both devices, but disable my iMessages etc from his phone??

    My husband has upgraded ios7.  His iphone and mine have the same apple id.  he has activated "icloud" which i have never activated before.  He is receiving my imessages and facetime calls. How do i disable this yet still continue using our shared apple id on both devices????
    thanks

    Short term solution, do this on both devices
    Settings > iCloud > Shut off anything you don't want shared
    Long term solution (actual solution)
    You need seperate Apple IDs for iCloud. iTunes and iCloud are not the same.
    Create a new Apple ID > https://appleid.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MyAppleId.woa/
    On one of the devices go Settings > iCloud > Delete Account > Sign in with the new Apple ID
    This will seperate your Contacts, Calendars, Messages etc.
    You both can continue to use the same Apple ID for iTunes and share apps and music
