My iphone contacts, etc. are not showing up on icloud.com even though all settings (calendar, contacts, icloud backup are turned on) and it shows that it backs up everynight when I plug it in. My son's itouch contacts are showing up on icloud.com so I'm not sure why mine aren't. Also, I have all his contacts on my iphone which I do not want. Should I just get a different itunes account?

    Welcome to the Apple Community.

     

    Firstly try not to confuse your itunes account with your iCloud account, they are different things and have their own Apple ID's. If you don't want to share contacts with your son, yes you should get your own iCloud account.

     

    As for your contacts not syncing, check that contact syncing is turned on in settings > iCloud, and also check that your contacts are in an iCloud account and not an On My Phone account.
