    Syncing 2 iPhones on one iTunes with separate contacts etc...
    My question is, can I sync 2 iPhones on one computer but the only thing i want different per phone is contacts, calanders, notes, and mail. We would like to share all songs and apps. Is this possible?

    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?

    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
