Answer:
Answer:

That's a new feature in iOS 8 called Continuity. You can turn it off in Settings>FacetIme>iPhone Cellular Calls>Off if you do not want to answer or make calls on your iPad. Your phone and iPad must both be running iOS 8 and be connected to WiFi.

Hi, I just got off the phone to Apple Support, my second call on the subject. My first call a day or two ago was answered by a rep who told me to turn off Handoff to disable Continuity. Today, the rep had the correct info: A FaceTime setting of all things!!


Both he and I are submitting a feedback to Apple Development to change how Continuity works. Rather than turn it off and on, there should be additional function and settings so an iPhone user can decide what happens when the iPhone switch to go to Silent/Vibrate mode also disables the Continuity feature from ringing another device (e.g., iPad).


Let's see what happens.

The setting is on the iPhone and on the iPad, and can be turned off on either one. If turned off on the iPhone, no devices will ring when the phone rings. If you turn it off on the iPad, that device will no longer ring, but other devices shareing the same FaceTime ID probably will.

I have the same issue. However, it's with my iphone 5 and my daughter's iphone 5c. When anyone calls either of our cell numbers - both phones ring. Help!

The fix is the same. Turn off iPhone Cellular Calls under Settings->Facetime or Use different Apple IDs on each iPhone.
