The best way is to have 2 user accounts, especially if you start separating mail and calendars

Thanks for the response, I knew that would work I was hoping there was another way that didnt involve me making another user account. Any other suggestions?

I use the gmail contact sync on mine so that it would not be an issue.

You can create additional calendars and separate contacts in their respective apps. Manage your iPhone to only sync to your specific calendar and contact group.
I don't know about Notes because it syncs through Mail and you might be able to differentiate which mail account your iPhone syncs with. Maybe not. Never tried it.

If you're sharing all songs and apps, be sure to use the same Apple ID on both iPhones.

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

Yes

Just takes a little work to set up

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
