Can I add more than one iCloud account to an iPhone? For example if I set my wife and I both up with an iCloud account, could I get her calander and mine on my phone?

No - the iCloud section of the Settings app only allows for one account on iOS 5.

You can however add as many iCloud accounts to the Mail, Contacts, Calendars as you have time to set up. You will see that you can enable the majority of the services on each subsequent non-main iCloud account.

The following items work only on the main account:

  • Backup
  • Documents & Data
  • Photo Stream

The following item is exclusive - any one (but only one) account can have:

  • Find My iPhone

For example, I use one iCloud account as my primary personal account and have a second account for a consulting business. Here is what that non-main account looks like when set up.

Yes but the non primary account is limited to only a few services. Simply add a new account to the mail, contacts and calendars section of settings, and tap iCloud

If all you want to do is to share iCloud calendars, you can easily do this from the iCloud calendar web app. Each calendar in the sidebar has a "share" icon next to it. Simply click this and enter the name of the person you want to share with.
