    My husband and I share 1 apple ID between us. His old iPhone 5 broke so he upgraded to the 6 this afternoon. Everything was backed up before we went to the store however when he signed into iCloud upon getting home and attempted to retrieve his contacts all that showed up on his phone were my contacts. Can anyone help? Also, the old iPhone 5 is no longer unusable. The screen is cracked so badly that we are unable to type in the passcode to enter the phone.

    THANK YOU!!

    All your husband had to do was restore the backup he made with his iPhone 5. Having said that, have him go to Settings - General - Reset and then select "Erase All Contents and Settings". After the process is complete, he will be met with the welcome screen. Have him select to restore to the iPhone 6 the backup he made with the iPhone 5.

    You need separate iCloud, iMessage and FaceTime ID's. You can share the same iTunes ID.
