Hi all

I have my iphone 4 set up to my itunes account and would like to add my wifes new iphone 4 to itunes. The problem is I put her phone in and itunes syncs my content to her phone. We dont want this! Is there a way of setting itunes up for my phone and and account for her phone so she can backup/sync independently of mine?

Would it be possible to have two seperate Windows logins, one for each of you? Most software seems to ask if it is to be used for all users or just one person.

Perhaps if your wife had her own user account, she could install iTunes again for her use only.

Sorry, but I'm only guessing here, is there some way within iTunes to use seperate phones? Have you tried the Apple forums?

My good lady and I use the same iTunes account . When she plugs in her new phone, she will need to set it up as a new phone and name it. Then you each can set up your own settings to sync what you want on each phone. For example, you may not want the same play-lists on your phones.New apps will sync to both of your iPhones, but from then on will then have their own data sets and can be deleted off of one iPhone without affecting the other. Hope this helps.
