Hello. I share an iphone account with my husband. icloud too. He upgraded to ios6 a week ago. I just did it yesterday. Our contacts have merged (I understand why and what to do). At the end of the process, I clicked ok on a screen with a bunch of checkmarks. The bottom said that any outgoing texts and email would come from my phone number. I didn't want to delete his email addresses or phone numbers, but the resulting problem is that when we send each other text messages, we both get the message. How do I fix the crosswired messaging and email trouble?
Re: the list of the email addresses and phone numbers I am seeing after tapping send & receive: that's the list I ok'd that I was uncertain of at the end of the setup process. Thanks for telling me where that is.
Will checking/unchecking the phone numbers/email only apply to my phone and not affect my husband's?
Can you tell me if this was all related to iCloud or the IOS6 update? I clearly need to learn some about how my phone works. Will the problem with receiving messages on both phones continue if we have imessaging turned on? It was never an issue before.
I'm asking you now instead of just trying and seeing, because I'd like to have the problem solved instead of further annoying my husband. He got very crabby over it.
ALSO!! In the list of send and receive, there is an arrow next to each email address. If I tap the arrow, it gives me an option to remove that email address. Should I do that? I know that one that's linked to the apple account. What happens if I remove the others?
