My wife and I share an iCloud backup account. We both upgraded to iPhone 5's and after performing backups and restores from our old phones (iPhone 4 & 4s) I restored them without issue to my phone. However, on my wife's iPhone her notes and calendar were replaced with mine instead of a combination of both that we have shared. Two Questions

  1. Can I find her notes and calendar?
  2. How do I prevent this in the future?


To add to this we share all content, except mail, through the iCloud from our iPads, my MacBook Pro, & our iPhones for a total of 5 devices. I have went through our devices and confirmed that our iCloud settings match the previous ones on our old iPhones & are the same throughout our devices.



iPad - Gen 1 iOS 5.1.1

iPad 3 - iOS 6.1.3

MacBook Pro - OSX 10.8.4

iPhone 5 - 6.1.4

iPhone 5 - 6.1.4


Thanks for the help,


iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.3
