My wife and I share a single Apple account. I am receiving her iMessages on my phone - how do I stop this? I've checked in settings and the two numbers are listed but only hers is set to receive iMessages.

iPhone 4, iOS 7.0.2

    You or your wifi must change Apple ID/ password or you will get each other's stuff on iPhones.

    The above answer is incomplete at best. I notice that Brian Syddall comments on many posts with incomplete or inaccurate information.

    To answer your question: it is because your wife and you are using the same Apple ID, they are not meant to be used by 2 people. Delete her Apple ID from your phone and creat your own, they are free.


    This will solve your problem.
