Every now and then, I will send a text message to a friend, and somehow, the message and the following conversation, seems to be copied to my wifes phone.
An interesting scenario!! Also makes me wander who else might be aware of my sms conversations!!!
I cant put my finger on when the issue first started, it does seem to have started fairly recenlty though. At first i thought i must have done something wrong...but now i am sure there is some sort of anomaly here.
I have done an iphone reset (ie..hold power and home buttons down for 10 seconds). That did not seem to resolve.
My friends is using an iphone 3GS (not sure of iOS version) and my wife and i are both on iphone 4 with 5.1.1. My wife's and my phone are managed by the same itunes account / pc (not sure if there is some sort of confusion between phs somehow?)
Any ideas on how to address this?
You can use the same Apple ID for purchase (iTunes Store, Apps Store and iBook Store) so you can share within the family. For all other Apple services, your wife, kids, etc... should have their own Apple IDs.
Not sure I understand this statement ? We have 2 different phone. Each with their own sim cards / ph numbers etc. what are you suggesting with your response ?
This happened to me once, it was because you are probably under the same Apple ID account, you should make another Apple ID (if you want to iMessage) If you don't want to iMessage (it would probably stop your conversations going on to your wife's phone) go to settings--> Text Messaging--> and shut of iMessage
Your Messages app uses 2 different paths to reach recipient. Either through Apple server (iMessage) or Cell carrier (SMS).
Here a link to an artikel which gives you an idea how to share Apple ID.
thanks - i have turned imessage off for now and ill see how it goes. appreciate help
