My huband upgraded to a iPhone 5 today.  He came home and plugged his phone into iTunes without signing in as himself first.  Now his phone is synced with my account and getting all my emails / text's etc.  I went to settings > iTunes and App Stores and took out my ID.  It will not let me enter his ID now.  I get a message "cannot connect to iTunes Store".  Although, I am able to sign into his account fomr iTunes on the actual computer just fine.


Also, I signed into his account on the computer trying to fix his phone.  I plugged it in and it appears to have synced all my stuff into his iTunes account.  When I sign in I can't find any of his's all my apps etc.  And when plugging in the phone to his account the iPhone shows up as "Jess iPhone" which is mine. 


Any way to fix all this?  What a mess.


Thanks so much!!

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.4

    I am having the exact same issue.  I wanted to synch my photos to my computer.  When I connected to itunes, it started to sync with my son's iphone account.  Now I have his contacts and photos and mine are gone!   This seems like a huge security bug!


    Can someone please help?

    I am having this same problem also.

    When I connect my iphone it sync my wife's apps and vice versa.

    It is frustrating.
