    I could use some help!

    I upgraded from my original iPad to the iPad 3. My husband is now using the older one.

    I did a complete restore and set it up as a new device however he is receiving my messages on his iPad AND so am I. How can I separate our pads but keep our purchased items and library combined?

    One other thing...when I did the set up on the iPad 3 I did switch over the cell data. I haven't signed him up yet.

    Thanks in advance for all your assistance!! These boards are such a huge help!!,

    Create separate icloud accounts for each device and use those for imessage, contacts, calendar etc. Keep your current account for itunes store purchases.

    Thanks for you help! I have set up a separate iCloud account for my husband and will see how that goes!
