My daughter's and wife's iphones are linked somehow. When one downloads an App, both gets it. They seem to be synced together. Whats doing this and how can it be disabled? One is Iphone 4, the other Iphone 4S

Didn't you know that the iPhones are magic? When you sync one, they sync everywhere! LOL

Have you used the same computer to download apps/updates? or to sync music? Are they using the same username/PW?

You might even want to crack one open for the fun of it ...

Yes.
When you say same computer, do you mean "exact" same computer or same Itune accounts?
I got them now to stop downloading the same apps but now they seem to sync with each ones contacts. When my daughter adds or deletes contacts it effect the other.
So I need to make 2 seperate Itune accounts? I dont know diddly squat about iphones and how they work with Itunes. I have never messed with itunes until a few days ago.

And I don't think I want to create an "exploded" view of their new Iphones. :shock:

That's what did it. Using the same iTunes account. You're getting brighter in your old age ... hehe.

Why didn't you tell me this before I bought them? ;) That's why I'm an Android user.
Ok so I just delete the account on one and create a new one on the other? On the same computer or another?

Well, I'm sure that you can have multiple accounts on one iTunes equipped PC. Not sure though, as I only have one account and my iPad2. But the beauty is that when I plug in my iPad2 to my PC, it automatically syncs my music, apps, and does updates on whatever else I have. Haven't used an iPhone, though, but it would be the same.

I use a Windows Phone and that uses Zune. It does the same as iTunes.
