Two iPhones linked to the same Apple ID

Is there any way to have separate iMessage services for two iPhones linked to the same Apple ID? I share Apple ID with my wife for convenience of buying apps only once and sharing photo and music from one Mac. However, the my iMessages to other people seem to appear on my wifes iPhone.  The phone number is used as a Caller ID.

My phone linked to my husbands phone

My husband and I both have the Iphone4. Earlier today somehow everything I put on my phone went to his phone. For example, I was on the train coming home and I put an event in my calendar and the event turned up in my husbands iphone. What the? When we looked into it all my Notes in my phone and everything in my calendar are now in his phone. The contacts are ok, no issues there and nothing else seems to be affected except those two things. Any ideas? I tried googling but came up blank. Thanks to anyone who has the answer. Oh, and we havnt hooked up to Itunes for weeks.

TS2529 itunes is asking for password to restore new iphone from backup I didn't set a password when I backed up the phone How can I restore the new phone from the backup I made just before giving my old phone to Apple

I had to take my phone in because the camera was broken.  I backed up the data on itunes and took the phone into the Apple store.  They gave me a new phone and said to just restore it from my latest backup.  When I select the restore point to use, itunes asks me for a password.  I didnt set a password when I backed up the old phone and iTunes doesnt accept my iTunes account password.  How can I get my new phone restored with the backup I did just prior to giving my phone to Apple?

HT1808 I followed the safe mode restore steps but i open the phone swipe to see - iPhone then walks me through set up I get to the choice - set up as new iPhone back up iCloud or iTunes- I tried both and now many times- how do i get my phone back to

First thing I noticed was that after every attempt to send a text, immediatly after tapping send I was flashed back to my home screen - no text saved or sent.  So I tried reset. I tried from icloud , but wouldnt work, just kept prompting me for apple id which I did w password but didnt reccognise it and so I went back and restored from itunes , plugged in and just keeps walking me thrigh the same set up steps.  I am really technologically challenged, clearly, and this gets more confusing because I also got a time machine and have been in the process of backing up my macbook pro and devices.  I have the ethernet cord plugged into my macbook and everything because I am affraid its not fully finished setting that whole time machine thing up.  Maybe when I had to set up my time capsule wifi name?  is this the reason my apple id isnt getting recognized?  Im so frustrated and must have a working cell phone.  Plwasw will someone help this girl out

Do apple make sure apps dont have viruses

Im a teenager and my mum tells me she went to a meeting where a man wnet on about viruses on smartphones and she said he even mentioned iphones and aparently it was in the news? i googled it and just pointless questions came up -_-


My question is...do iphones have viruses?

btw im not talking about jailbroken iphones cause there a whole other story!


And if so? i thought apple scan and make sure they dont have before there put on the App store?


I looked into making apps ages ago because my friend wanted to try make one cause he thinks its so easy, but theres alot of work involved with apple so i thought (trusting in apple cause we pay them so much,) that they would protect us properly!

But do they? and if not? is it a good idea to look into an anti virus app?

I have had to hand in my company phone iPhone 5 and completed a reset before doing so in the hope that I would find my pictures and contacts again but they are now gone Is there a way I could restore even though the phone was erased and I dont have i

I have had to hand in my company phone (iPhone 5) and completed a reset before doing so in the hope that I would find my pictures and contacts again but they are now gone. Is there a way I could restore even though the phone was erased and I dont have it?

Not that i dont believe the guy at the apple store but i wanna check

ok so an employee at the apple store told me that the pre-order tomorrow does not pay for your iphone, it only reserves it, you pay on the 24th.....its not that that seem unbelieveable, but im just wondering how exactly thats gonna work out? is it that if on the 24th your card gets charged and doesnt go through you cant get the phone? but i thought the phone shipped early so it arrives on the 24th? so then wouldnt it charge when it ships? i hate the lack of official info they give on this! just tell people how it works exactly so there isnt so much misinformation! i see they want a buzz and a rush but if people are going to buy it they will, dont make it a hassle for people who are obviously interested in buying it...poor way to handle it.

iPhone linked to iMac & PC

I recently bought an iMac for home and use a PC at work. Via iTunes I have downloaded photos from my iMac to the iPhone. Is it possible when at work to link my iPhone to my pc to download photos. The man in the shop who sold me the iPhone said that the iPhone only syncs with the first computer its linked to. Is this correct.
Many thanks in advance if anyone is able to help.

Data Connection Linked to Call Quality

So heres an interesting thing I keep finding.
Got my iPhone 4. Dont use it for calls all that often, but recently Ive been making calls here and there.
Currently, I dont have WiFi in my apartment (waiting another week for that) but I do at work. To cut back on my data usage, I like to switch to WiFi while Im at work (and will eventually be doing the same thing at home). Now, this is where things get interesting.
Either at home or at work, whenever I turn off my cellular data and/or 3G (it usually works just when switching off 3G but sometimes I just turn both off) and am either without data or on WiFi, I suddenly gain 3-4 bars of cell reception and my calls work great. I can (usually) still make a call with the measly one or two bars I have during a data-connected period, but Im turning off my data more and more just to make calls and get the extra bars.
Anyone else had this happen to them? Im curious to see if this is just a reception problem or if it stems from the iOS 4.0.1 update. It just seems strange (and I do realize 4.0.2 is out but I havent had the chance to download the update from my apartment since my Internet isnt set up!).

Please do a recall on Apple iphone 4 and 4s Chargers is this an APPLE call or cell phone company problem Apple please help I I take excellent care of my wall charger and it unravel where the charger is attached to the Apple iphone call can u help

Dear community Happy New Year .listen I have a Apple Iphone 4s:I have had this as a gift since may 2012.Its good,but my daughter and about 10 other people I know are having problems with their wall chargers in home and maybe even mobile im not sure.I especially take great care in disconnecting my device and removing the cord when not in use. the wear and tear cannot be that often to cause this damage we are all having !The cord on the charger is unravelling from the base where the apple iphone is attached when or while charging. I have use the cord in very bad conditions because #one I cannot afford to replace this item at the OFFICIAL APPLE STORE so Im guessing people like myself is going to discount stores to make purchase of chargers they most likely not work! I have tried 3 and none work spending anywhere from $8.00-$15.00 dollars. Im also concern about the fact that a lot of CHILDREN who must most likely go un supervised on using this unravelled IPHONE CHARGER CORD  when their parents maynot be aware. I not the voltage may not be of that large in which someone could cause shock or harm Im not certain of this either, However theres always a first Im asking can you either number one recall these chargers via Apple Corportation or two these cell phone companies who sell your product make them accountable for this .I learned today through Apple that the cell phone companies that sell Apple product use 3rd parties material to produce these mobile and home wall chargers and that they are not made by APPLE CORPORATION I WAS VERY UPSET TO KNOW THIS !I am asking you APPLE  to look into this very important concern that not just me but other consumers may have before their is an injury. also if you sell a $500.00 product thats MADE IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY CERTAINLY YOU CAN INCLUDE A GENIUNE CHARGER WITH YOUR APPLE PRODUCT WHEN SOLD IN CELL PHONE COMPANIES STORES AND STRIP MALLS ACROSS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND SURELY PEOPLE ARENT AWARE THAT THE REAL PRODUCT IS ONLY AT THE APPLE STORE EVEN IF THIS IS TRUE !  ps I called the apple store today to get a replacement they wanted to charge me would only offer me a $1.25 cent discount ! IST THIS WHAT APPLE PAY TO HAVE OTHER COUNTRIES MAKE THE IPHONE? THANKS APPLE FOR HEARING MY

Set phone to busy

On my SE P1i other than silent I can set the phone to refuse calls, or only accept calls from the numbers in my speed dial, etc. This is one step further than setting the phone to silent as the caller will either receive a busy tone or the call is just dropped, I chose.

Problems Restore it and set up as new phone

Hi all,
Ive been going around and around in circles trying to fix my dodgy connection problems on my iPhone 3G 3.0. Was having major issues with connectivity, poor signal, dropped or forward-to-voicemail incoming calls, poor sound quality etc and 0 signal in some rooms in my flat.
After weeks of discussions with O2, apple and you good folk here on the forums whats the solution?
Restore and set up as a new phone! Dont restore from a backup!
The problem here seems to be that any corrupted or duplicate settings get pushed back to the phone and the problems just carry over if you restore from a backup. By setting up as a new phone all that seems to be fixed.
I have now gone from an average of 1-2 bars in my basement flat with terrible connectivity issues to 4-5 bars and 0 connectivity issues. This is in a small basement flat with thick walls. In rooms I previously had 0 signal in I now get on average 2-3 bars. Thats a huge improvement for 20 mins work.
It may seem like an obvious suggestion but if others, like myself, have simply been restoring from a backup in order to save a little time setting everything up, then you should definitely consider restoring and setting up as new. It only took me around 15 mins to get all my email and calendar accounts working again, sync over a few albums, photos, google sync up my contacts and away you go, and the actual restore process only takes a few mins as we all know.
If youre at the end of your tether (no pun intended!) Id advise doing this. Youll be surprised how much better your phone will perform.
