    Wife and I both have iphone4s and ipad1s. I got iOS5 installed on all of them. I then realized that because we had shared an AppleID in iTunes that we were going to get everything intermingled. Sure enough I now have all her apps and my apps PLUS I've got her contacts intermingled with mine on both my iPhone and iPad but hers do not have her contacts on either device. She had many numbers she needs for her job but I don't know how to get them back on her phone.

    Please help me or I'm gonna get killed.

    I can't help you unmix them, but the thing to do is make separate iCloud accounts for each of you, but then in the Store press on the phone, put in instead your shared iTunes store ID.

    Yep, after realizing what mess it was going to be, I set up separate iCloud accounts and separate iTunes store accounts. The problem now is cleaning up the mess.
