2 iPhones, 1 Apple ID...correct configuration?

Can I get a straight answer on this.

We have two iPhones, one is mine, one is fiance. We use one Apple ID so we can share apps, movies and music.

I want to use iCloud and so does she. We don't want all of our contacts, photos ect to sync.

What is the correct procedure to set this up?

Thanks in advance all you Geniuses!

Best solution is that there should be 2 iCloud accounts.

One with the iTunes account and another for your spouse. You can be logged into them separately on a device.

So your phone: Main Apple ID w/ iTunes account logged into all services.

Spouse: 2nd Apple ID logged into iMessage, iCloud. Main Apple ID should be logged into the Store/iTunes

Yea that guy said it all.

Set up different iCloud accounts but use the same iTunes account.

You do realize that this has been asked a half dozen times already today, right? And I'm sure if you looked in the iCloud forum, you'd see answers.

Also, see this document by Apple:
