This may seem like a elementary question but I have never had to worry about it until just recently. My wife just got her first iPhone a few weeks ago and she is wanting me to put some apps on it. When syncing her phone in iTunes, how do I keep from having my contacts, calendars, etc dumped onto her phone? Do I need to set up a different iTunes account for her, different contact list on the computer, different calendar? Again sorry for the basic question but with all of my devices I have just never run across this issue.

Just tick not to sync contacts on Info page. I personally like to sync mine and hubbies the same so as to always be able to use his phone if necessary. (say, if I'm near my limit) He then has all my contacts but then just puts his personal ones in Favourites. Don't get a separate account as then you will have to pay for all the apps for your wife.
