My wife is receiving all texts sent to and from my phone - that are not being texted specifically to her.  Why is her phone getting duplicate info from mine?  If she sends me a text, she gets 2.  Weird.


iPhone 4, iOS 6.0.1

    Messages settings

    Go to Settings > Messages to set options for Messages, including:

    • Turning iMessage on or off

    • Notifying others when you’ve read their messages

    • Specifying an Apple ID or email address to use with Messages

    Because you both are using the same Apple ID.

    Same Apple ID in Settings > iTunes & App Stores is okay to share  Music, Apps and Books.

    For other Apple services like iMessage, FaceTime, iCloud your wife should use her own Apple ID.
