It was unclear that you meant two email addresses. iCloud is a service for syncing music, contacts, calendar, etc., and some people have a email address ending in @icloud.com.

The short answer is yes, you can change the Name of your @icloud.com address in Settings and it will have no effect on your husband’s account. They're completely separate.

You don't "open" iCloud. It's not an app, it's more of a service. You use an app to send and receive email, and iCloud synchs it for you.
I think if you look at any post I have made on this forum, you will find that I am very respectful and nice.

My response to you was just as dry as your post. All I was saying is that if you would have read the first post and my other response, I don't think you would have replied the way you did ... as I never even mentioned hubby and I sharing an email, or anything about a phone.

And I apologize if my techno lingo isn't up to your standards.

Jules

Edit: it seems that you can log into your iCloud account on a computer. Click on mail. In the resulting page there is a gear in the upper right corner. Click that and select preferences. On one of the tabs, you can change the name. I believe that it is the same setting that can be accessed on the iPad as mentioned in my first paragraph above. Making that change probably wont affect anything except the email. i didn't change mine so i can't be 100% sure what else it may affect. I do not think it will affect the iTunes account at all.
Thank you for that information. I will give it a try and see how it goes.

Thanks bunches! Jules

Thank you!!!

I have another question, so I'll just ask here.

Can I watch regular live TV on the iPad via a cable of some sort?

I know I can watch things on the iPad through Hulu, Netflix and Amazon.

However, let's say there's a great movie on TV while I'm taking a bath. Can I run (say) a HDMI cable from the TV to the iPad and watch live TV on the iPad?

Thanks bunches! Jules

No.

Although some cable companies have an app that will allow you to watch SELECT channels (not all) on the iPad. I know Time Warner and Comcast do.

Well poop! I was hoping an HDMI cable (or some other cable) would do the trick!

HUGz! Jules

There are also a few other options, but they usually require some sort of hardware....

Slingbox comes to mind.
