Multiple iPhone Users

I have a situation where I need to share an iPhone 4s or 5 across several users. Is there a way to have several different login profiles on a single iPhone? If not, is there an app that would allow each user to select their own Exchange profile independent from the other users?

Thanks

It simply cannot be done in iOS. A phone was not meant for multiple users - it's not a replacement for a computer.

Is it the same email domain, or different? For example... If user A has yahoo: use the yahoo app. User B has gmail: use the gmail app... Etc.

I could see how this would work on an iPad, but on an iPhone it seems too personal a device for more than 1 user.

This cannot be done in this version of iOS. But I suspect it will be possible in a future release of iOS.
While you are right, at least in my point of view, that a phone is a personal device, a tablet surely is not.

There are countless ipads being used by different family members at home. That would be the #1 reason to implement different user profiles.

Right now, the Nexus 7 is the only tablet that has implemented multiple user logins. It's making it difficult for developers. (What a surprise!)

Tablets are not replacements for desktops.

There's a TV commercial for Barnes & Nobles Nook that shows multiple family members sharing a single Nook with multiple login capabilities. Whether or not the Nook can be considered a true "tablet" is another question, but the multiple login implementation is being promoted by another company.

So true. So it can be done on two Android tablets. We'll see if it shows up on more. Personally, I don't want to share my iPad, so it's a moot issue.

I wouldn't want to share my iPad either. It would mean less time for me to use it and probably end up with physical confrontation. :)
