My family has previously used the same iTunes account.  Now that we all have apple devices, the iCloud feature is mixing our contacts, calendars and messages.  How do I set up individual iCloud accounts while retaining the current joint iTunes account (so that I can manage the payments for iTunes purchases)?  I cannot figure out how to change the current iCloud account (which is the Apple ID I have used for iTunes for years) on either my Mac or my iPhone.  It seems that once you have set your iCloud account, you cannot change it.  Any advice out there?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
