How do I keep my wifes calls appear on my phone and mine appear on hers, we share the same acct icloud and itunes? It just started this on one or two updates ago

Welcome to the Apple community.

I'm afraid that is what happens when you share an Apple ID.

Ideally you should each have your own ID and use family share for share purchases, but at least you would be better to have your own ID's for everything except iTunes.

I suspect that your problem is that you share an ID for FaceTime, you must either stop this or make sure that you have only and that your caller ID is only your phone number.

  • How to stop xp lost / forget my password and force me to restart after only one or two days of availability editions home and professional

    Title says it pretty well, but it is on two different AMD multi-core cpu with a list programs installed for the most part identical and quite long.  I hope that it is a problem of xp, someone has already found and fixed even if I don't the have not found in several searches.  Before that everyone assumed that I forgot my password, let me assure you that is not and has not been and will not be the problem; but when (after one day or more available), I'm trying to connect with my correct password, xp persistently asks me if I forgot it and of course, this means I have to restart, with its side effects, in order to refresh the memory of xp apparently and allow me to connect.  For what it's worth, in this case, no matter if I 'disconnect' screen lock or me with the Windows key + combination L or even to pass time until the locking screensaver mechanism is used automatically.  It seems that over the years something in a few key file or registry or RAM or what is get corrupted, but what is the solution?  I don't remember what happens until fairly recently, so can it be caused by something changed by one of the most recent Windows updates?  Another thought that occurs to me would be whether there all known software conflicts have caused something like this?   I don't run a server, but I have still xp does not have to be reloaded every day or almost and prompt me to worry what else may be getting damaged as well as my password.  I've kept ZoneAlarm Extreme Security uptodate and analyzed regularly without viral invasions/epidemics coming to my attention, so I am at a loss to point a finger there, too.  All my other software is widely used, as surely as if she caused this problem, others would have reported such a conflict before now (?).  Oh, and I don't do betas (unless you count an occasional Release Candidate), so I don't have this kind of problems.  I know that's not the most urgent global problem, but it always makes me think for a moment, what happens if he loses or forget my password - so what I'll do if the restart does not resolve, even if only temporarily.  I guess you could consider my reboot of a workaround, but I want to find is something that is more durable than all of this, please.  I understand there is a somewhat similar problem involving mode XP of Windows 7 and apparently it may concern unique aspects of this OS, but maybe there's an analogy?  Also, is there a limit to (or how to limit) the number of times where XP will connect a particular user (or user attempt?)?   If so, I would like to know how and where this can be changed, to see if it helps me everything.  Remember, however, there must be something that will work on Home and Professional Editions, that's why he left me speechless.  Oh yes, I want to emphasize that both of my computers are free standing without any local network operating, etc., just a router to access internet and shared printer.  If there is more information you need from me, just post a reply with what you want and I'll try to get back with her in 24 hours, if possible.

  • What happens if I can't find the owner of the iphone. I'm Phil and my aunt just gave this iphone 4S of canada she had chosen their street. How can I activate it? Should I me this makes rather in the apple store here in the phil? Pls help

    How can I activate this phone? What could be the best solution to my problem. This iphone 4S is still in good condition.

    If you find a lost device, I would advise that you contact the carrier. If there is a SIM card in the iPhone, the carrier's name is probably written on it.

    So also we recommend you to contact law enforcement. If the iPhone has been reported as lost, and the person who has lost the serial number, the police will be able to restore their iPhone.

    If you still can't find the original owner, you know that the iPhone can be locked in three different ways:

    -Locking: it is a security feature to protect the data stored on the iPhone. You'll need to clear its content:

    -Lock activation: this is a security feature to prevent thieves turn on stolen devices. Unfortunately, it also goes for lost devices. You can find out if it is blocked here: if this is the case, former owner of the iPhone is the only one who can unlock the iPhone, sorry. Unless they connect to their Apple ID and remove the iPhone from his account, you won't be able to use it. There is not much interest to let the phone from Apple, because they won't be able to use it either. Maybe the local police can keep him.

    -Lock carrier: a carrier locked the phone to their network. You can contact the carrier to ask them to unlock the iPhone. There may be a charge for this.

    Of course, the iPhone can be locked in three of these means. The only one you can not pass without the original owner's lock Activation.

    Using more an iDevice on the same computer

    This mainly applies to couples who add another device and don't want their electronic mail, messages, etc. being duplicated on both devices. To start reading: How to use several iPhone, iPad or iPod devices with one computer. You must create a login separate Apple and password for anyone who will use the new iDevice. See Apple - my Apple ID and frequently asked questions about the Apple ID. The easiest way is to do it on the computer using iTunes: iTunes - how to set up an Apple ID iTunes.

    On the computer, create a new user account for the person with the new iDevice. This is the user account always uses this person. He or she will no longer use the other user account. This way the person will have a separate iTunes library. Note When finished, do not 'share' apps under a single Apple ID. Each of you must buy your own applications under your own Apple ID. When you decide to divide like this you will have to buy new applications they want to use.

    First, transfer the new devices to a new account as well as all your data.  Save pictures of flow picture you want to keep for your camera (unless they are already in the camera roll) by opening your Photos app, tap Albums icon at the bottom. Now press the album My Photo Stream; Press Select; tap the photo you want to select. tap the share (box with the face up arrow) in the lower left corner icon; in the film, and then click Save.

    If you synchronize notes with iCloud, you want to keep, you must open each of your notes and email it to yourself. Later, you can copy and paste the text into the new notes created in your new account.

    Tap Settings > iCloud > remove account (removes it only from this device, not iCloud; the person who maintains the current account is not affected) provide the password to disable find my phone and choose to keep on my iDevice when prompted.  Sign in with another Apple ID to create your new account. Choose merge to download your data.

    Once you are on separate accounts, you can each go to and remove data from the other person to your account.

  • How to share the same function in different frames

    I create a quiz of multiple choice with several questions.

    I have every clickable selection using "answer1", "answer2"... as the instance name.

    I created a standard button to show the different States and make selection (like what is below):

    ANSWER1.buttonMode = true; / / to display the hand icon

    ANSWER1.addEventListener (MouseEvent.CLICK, answer1Click);

    ANSWER1.addEventListener (MouseEvent.ROLL_OVER, answer1Rollover);

    ANSWER1.addEventListener (MouseEvent.ROLL_OUT, answer1Rollout);

    function answer1Click(ev:MouseEvent):void


    ANSWER1.gotoanswerndStop (2);

    ANSWER2.gotoanswerndStop (1);

    answer3.gotoanswerndStop (1);

    answer4.gotoanswerndStop (1);

    salt = 1;


    function answer1Rollover(ev:MouseEvent):void


    ANSWER1.gotoanswerndStop (2);


    function answer1Rollout(ev:MouseEvent):void


    If (salt! = 1).


    ANSWER1.gotoanswerndStop (1);



    Duplicate the setting for different questions, but I can't reuse the same functions for the first question. It would give error 'Duplicate' function definition... I don't want to rename the names of instances for each new question. How can I reuse the same function for questions?
