    I'm new to the iphone arena. My wife and I just bought iPhones and we set them both up under 1 iTunes user account. I was told by the Apple guy that each phone comes with an extra 5gb of space in iCloud. Is that true if we're both using 1 iTunes account OR do I have to setup 2 different iTunes accounts in order to take advantage of the free 5gb of space? If I have to setup another iTunes account, would that mean we'd have to buy the same app twice if we both want it on our phones (like Angry Birds)? Thanks in advance!

    No, you can use the same iTunes and just set up different iCloud accounts.

    So just for clarification because I've been so confused about this...

    I already have a me.com account and want to switch to iCloud. I do not have snow leopard to upgrade to Lion so I basically can't move my me account to iCloud since the software isn't up to date...

    Instead of me going into settings and entering my apple ID that I have with me.com, can I just create a new apple ID to utilize iCloud? And if I do that, will there be any hiccups with my contacts or will I have a new backup of all the contacts and settings/apps that I currently have on my device now?

    Sorry in advance for such a confusing explanation
