    Default How do I separate two iPhones with the same Apple ID.

    I was given a new IPhone 6 from my IPhone 5s. Both phones have my Apple ID even though the 5s is my husband's now with his own phone number. I have tried going to settings, App Store/ITunes and viewed my ID and tried to edit but it only allowed me to edit the name. I am not being allowed to edit the Apple ID. Any suggestions how to do this?

    Someone suggested deleting account and starting over but the phones are synced.

    Just curious, but why doesn't your husband use his own Apple ID for the phone?

    On the 5s... Go to settings... iCloud... Scroll to the bottom... Tap 'sign out'... Turn off iMessage and FaceTime... And under iTunes & AppStore... Tap your AppleID and on the pop-up, sign out... Then your husband can sign in with his own AppleID...
