We just updated my husband's iphone 5 to IOS 7.  We share an apple ID.  We've never had an issue before...but after the update text messages to his phone number (from other iPhones) are coming to MY phone & not his.  I've attempted to change some settings (including shutting off iMessage on his phone), but he still doesn't get my texts. I've altered the "Send & Receive" setting in Messages (under Settings), this doesn't change the result of him getting texts/imessages.  What happened & if he gets his own apple ID, will that mean we can no longer share a calendar?  That's key...need to share the iCal on our devices (which includes 3 iPads, an iMac, a MacBook Air, and 2 iPhones).

iPhone 5, iOS 7.1.1

Well, then use the same Apple ID for iCloud.

This is not the right way to use/share Apple ID.


1. You can share purchases using the purchasing Apple ID in Settings > iTunes & App Store > Apple ID: > here.

Note: Recommended in a household so no need to re-purchase apps, movies, books and music.

2. Settings > iCloud > Account > Apple ID here > Find My iPhone: ON

Note: If each of you have their own Apple ID, each will have 5GB free, otherwise all will be using this same 5GB.

You can use the same (complex) passoword even if you are using a different Apple ID so no big deal to use their own Apple ID for FMiP.
