    Default 2 iphones, 1 pc problem

    I updated my and the friend's iphone4 to the iOS 5.0 and now our contacts consolidated together. Also our calendar events and photos etc.... I synced my phone and my name comes up just as it always does, but when I go into the iphone properties on the pc it shows up as "friend's" iphone not mine. I think this is where the problem lies. So, my question is how can I get the incompetent pc to recognize the iphone's correctly?? Thank you very much for the help....

    You restore from your backup and so does your friend from your own computers I think, they got merged possibly when it synced and restored from YOUR backup .. But make sure your backup is the ONE before that last sync

    Go to iTunes Preferences -> Devices and delete only the last backup (which prob has the merged contacts) and restore your device

    Also try restarting iTunes, if you haven't already.
