My wife and I share an iMac and we both have iPhones. Her contact list is much different than my contact list. Is there any way we can set up both iPhones on the same computer, but use different contact lists?

A couple of ways to do it that I know of.

The first would be to log into and use separate user accounts with each iPhone.

My wife and I both sync our phones from the same user account on my Mac. (Because she can't seem to learn how to do it and she's got me to do it for her). My phone syncs with the contacts on my user account. She keeps her contact info in yahoo and I sync her phone with her yahoo account. This would still work, say if both of you used yahoo for your contacts, as you would just change the yahoo account for the phone to sync to each time.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

My wife & I have separate iMacs. Is it possible to set up separate users on an iPad so that, when connected to iTunes on her iMac, her stuff will be stored separately from mine?
