How do I organize iTunes so when iCloud comes not all 5 iOS devices get it?

    2 iPhone 4 (me & my mom)
    1 iPhone 4S (my dad)
    2 iPad (me & my bro)

    Right now everything is on 1 iTunes account, my PC, but now that basically everyone is getting their own phone I want to make it more organized.

    So the account we use is my dad's.

    Any way I can make it so if he downloads iTunes on his laptop and sign into that with the account we use he can get his own stuff separate from what I get?

    Because with all this iCloud thing I dont want to download something and then iCloud sends it to everybody.

    Any solutions?

    Just don't enable iCloud or Automatic downloads on those devices.

    Also, don't forget to rename the porn folder to something like 'school assignments' just in case. :D

    Yeah, that is a tough position to be in heading into iCloud.

    Realistically, you all need your own unique accounts so that content each of you download/create only gets synced with your device. I would go ahead and set that up now.

    As for the content in your Dad's account, you'll have to decide if you want to try and copy only the data that belongs to each user to each individual account or simply start from scratch. There may be some pain ahead if you attempt to divvy-up the content per user (depending on DRM, etc).

    Good luck. Hopefully it ends up working out without too much complication, but it sounds like an interesting mountain to climb.
