    Does anybody have this set up?
    What are the best methods you use so that we can sync all of our own music/contacts/photos?

    I was thinking we would just use our separate logins to manage our phones. Would this work?

    No need to use separate user accounts unless you want to, you can set it up so each phone syncs separate iCal, Address Books, Music, Photos, etc. in iTunes in the same account.

    If you have two separate users set up on the machine, and each user has their own set of music loaded in iTunes, I would go that way... If you basically just have the one user up all the time, then you could try the other way (as mentioned in post #2).

    I have seen in the prefs for iTunes that there is a list on the iPhone tab, but I haven't messed with 2 phones on one account yet. I'm just going with the two users method. Especially since the music collection is very different between the two.

    2 Iphones on 1 Computer using separate Itunes Accounts


    I just purchased the Iphone and I am looking to sync two Iphones to one computer as well. My sister has had an Iphone for a year now and I need to find out step by step instructions on how to set 2 Iphones up using two different Itunes Accounts. I know you can set up in one account, but out musical taste is so different, I don't want to accidentally sync up with my phone and have Whitney Houston singing sweet nothings into my ear on my way to work.

    I am a newbie with Macs so if ANYONE would post or tell me where to find how to set up my new iphone on my Itunes account, it would be a huge help.

    Also, when I plug my new iphone it recognizes my sisters phone as being synced up and gives me the option of setting up as new phone or restoring from an old backup. HELP! I don't want to erase anything of hers or else I'd be a little more ballsy..
