I'm having the same issue on only one of my two iPods ?!
I have the following:
iphone 4S - OS 6.1.1
ipod Touch # 1 - OS 6.1.2
ipod Touch #2 - OS 6.0.1
All three devices have unique e-mails registered. Touch #1 has the iphone number i don't want.
If I log out of my apple id on the iphone and reset network settings on Touch # 1, then the number is gone. As soon as I log into AppleID on the iphone, the number re-appears on Touch # 1. Argh.
This does not happen on Touch # 2 which makes me think there should be a solution other than separate Apple ID's.
Any help is appreciated.
You can only unchedk the phone number is Settings>FaceTime>You can be reached at and Settingsg>Messages>Send and receive.
If you do nt what the phone nimber to appear on the iPod you have to use and Apple ID not associated with with an iPhone with iOS 6. Create the new ID and then only use that ID for Settings>Messages>Send and Receive and Settings>FaceTime
What gets me is that Touch # 2 is running iOS 6.0.1 and the phone number is not showing up there. I'm going to do an update on that one tonight and see if the phone number shows up there. I'm guessing it will.
If it does, then I will get a new Apple ID for the iphone. I guess my issue then will be sharing apps across my devices. But that's another topic.
