At present my wife and I both have iphone's with a single MobileMe and iTunes account configured on both devices. This way we share the same contact list and calendars and music.

Going forward, if I configure a single iCloud account on both devices will iMessage think both devices are the same person. i.e If I send a message from Messages on my phone, will it be able to use iMessage, or will it have to default to SMS because it treats her phone as me?

Alternatively, is there a way we can have our own iCloud accounts, but setup synchronizing of our calendars/contacts etc between accounts, and share the same music?

I'm currently looking into something similar, we have 2 separate me accounts, but share the calendars.... at present, she turns on the calendars sync and leaves everything else off on my me account, but just has the mail turned on hers!

I'm not sure how you can share music and everything.. unless you just put it all on one computer and then share it that way!

i was looking for a similar thing ... and found http://forums.tipb.com/icloud-forum/220394-sharing-contacts-across-multiple-icloud-accounts-possible.html ... that should solve a lot of icloud sharing / non-sharing things?
