iOS Build a Simple iPhone App (iOS7) Testing and Debugging Debugging Basics

When testing with xcode does my phone need to be the same apple id as my developer account?

I share an apple id with my father (which is nice because we only pay once for each of us to use certain apps, but complicates a lot of stuff). I'm going through the iOS developer program setup and I want to get setup with my OWN apple id. If I use own apple id to sign up and then have my dad's apple id on my iphone, can I still test on my iphone?

No. I deleted my Apple ID from the iCloud menu in Settings app. Then I tested an application from my XCode and it ran without problem. Then I logged with my personal Apple ID and tested the same app from my XCode - no problems :) Then I logged again my company account - same success.

Conclusion: iCloud is not related to XCode testing.
