im using my husbands itunes id and he keeps getting my imessages and I get his missed calls?

Hi,

My husband and I use the same apple I tunes account and have always both had iphones and never had a problem. However, I must have done something wrong when I set up my iphone this time and it is causing me several issues:
  • My husband is receiving my IMessage messages as well as me receiving them and if he opens them first they do not show as a new message on my phone
  • I get a notification of a missed call, if someone calls my husbands phone and he misses the call, so it looks like I have a missed call
  • Sometimes my texts to 'other phones' (ie to a person using a phone that is not an Iphone) do not always send and likewise I do not always receive these (however my husband does not receive these either)

I am not sure what to do to sort this out as I still want to use the same Itunes account as my husband.

I have just reset my Iphone 6 to factory settings to try and set it up again correctly, but as I dont know what I did wrong the first time, I am not sure how to set it up without making this mistake, this time?

Any help would be massively appreciated!

You can use one AppleID for the iTunes and App stores. But you each need your own AppleIDs for iCloud, iMessage and FaceTime. If you use the same AppleID for those three services then you will be sharing ecerything as you both will be using the same accounts for those separate Appe services.

You can have multiple AppleIDs and you can use different ones for each service. So just get your own AppleID, log out of iCloud, iMessage and FaceTime, and re-login with your new private AppleID. That will separate those services.

To Turn off the "link" between both iPhones, do the following on BOTH phones.

1. Settings> Phone> Calls on Other Devices> TURN OFF "Allow Calls on Other Devices"

2. Settings> Messages> Send & Receive> Uncheck all emails. Only check your number.

However, if both of you still want to use iMessage with the Apple ID, you will both use the same "iMessage account".

Alternatively, both of you can use seperate Apple IDs, which will save the hassle. You can also use Family sharing after that to link purchases and credit cards.

I forgot to add step 3!

3. Settings> Messages> Text Message Forwarding> Turn off your spouse's device

Remember to do all 3 steps on both phones.
