How come after the upgrade to iOs 6 my text messages are being sent to people that I am not even sending them to!

So I updated to iOs 6 (4s phone) and today all the text messages I received were also sent to my son's 4s as well (he is on iOs 6 now too)  ***???  Can anyone help me out on this one?????

Did you by chance give your son your old iphone 4s and activate a new iphone 4s?  If so, you may need to contact your carrier or wait the period of time required for it to finally switch.

    My text messages are being sent and received with my email address instead of my phone number. How do I fix this?

    This is with iMessages only.
    Go to Settings > Messages > Send & Receive and below the Start New Conversations From, select your cell phone number instead of your Apple ID email address.

  • Since updating to OS5, my text messages are being sent as e-mails.  Also, my contacts do not show the people's phone

    Since updating my iPhone 4 to iOS5, it seems my texts are being sent as e-mails or in e-mail form. The person I am texting gets a phone number and not my name.  Also, when I click on contacts to text to, where it used to show the phone number and I would touch the number to text, it just shows the persons name, no phone#.
    Thanks for any help!

    Settings > Messages > Send and Received > Uncheck any number/email that does not belong to the device
    Note: The little blue (>) will give you an option to remove the number/email from the device
    Note: Check this setting on any device(s) using the same Apple ID

  • We have two iphone 4s on the same computer and after we did the ios6 upgrade the text messages are being sent to both phones. How do we stop this?

    My wife and I's iphone 4s' are both on the same computer.  When we did the new upgrade to ios6 it started sending text messages to both of us from each other.  For example I sent my wife a text "Hey" and then my phone received a message from Me "Hey."  Another example is that a friend sent my wife a text and both of us received it from that friend, but not in a group message. We both deleted our icloud account and the problem still happened.  Then we checked that we were both signed in to our own personal accounts for imessage and we were.  After turning off imessage the problem went away.  Any ideas on how to make imessage work without having it send messages to both of us?  

    I also have the same problem and changed the send & receive addresses . But it always seems to revert back to 2 addresses/numbers on the second , my wifes phone . Which isn't the best .

  • TS2755 With the new IOS7 how do i tell which phone number my text messaging is being sent to? on the old system the number used to be highlighted, now nothing is highlighted and i have ended up sending texts to my friends international numbers instead ???

    With IOS7 I am finding it impossible to (a) tell which number I am texting, when my contacts have multiple phone numbers, i dont know wether it si their home , monile/cell or international number... How do i differnetiate or know which number it is, especially when they text me from abrioad and i replying ...its not very clear adn has cost me extra in international charges

    Thanks Michael. Apologies for the slow reply I was away for a bit (holiday blitz at work and visiting family madness etc.etc.) back now, I set both options you requested to "never " and retried the CMS software with no change. 
    I do have progress of a sort though, as a test I took a separate test PC and put a clean install of Win7 on and loaded up the CMS software (it worked perfectly) and then took the version of ole32.dll off that machine and put it onto the computer I had built
    for her (using Linux) and...
    got a new error code. Darn I was so sure I had found a clever solution this time lol.
    Anyway now when the CMS fails it gives me a similar error but the offending module is "ntdll.dll" sooo... I tried taking the "working" version of ntdll.dll from the test box and moving it over (making sure to back up the existing ones
    first so I could put them back if needed) to her new PC and the PC would not boot. 
    It seems to want the original versions of a few Dynamic Link Libraries and if I could somehow give it those while not breaking Win7 it should theoretically work seeing as it no longer errors with ole32.dll. 
    ntdll.dll however seems necessary for Win7 to boot.
    So what I am wondering now is:
    Is there some way to have both versions of the DLL file in the system32 folder (bypassing the "cannot have two files with the exact same name in the same folder" thing) or rename the original DLL's something else and somehow make the CMS look for
    the new named versions so the system has the updated DLL's it needs to boot/run and the CMS has the old ones it wants to run or is there someway to have a self contained install of the CMS, say on a USB flash drive and give it it's own E:/windows/system32/needed
    dll's  path to the files it needs? 
    Willing to try any other options or settings you may have come up with as well.
    Thanks again for your reply and my apologies for not answering sooner.

  • Why the wifi doesn't work after the upgrade to iOS 5?

    The problem is that after the upgrade to iOS 5 the wifi doesn't work. I mean, iPad is connected to the wifi but not to the internet and also the connection on the other device doesn't work. So I had to turn off the router and then turn it on.

    Try a hard reset first to see if that does any good.  To do this, press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons together long enough for the Apple logo to appear.
    If no luck with that, you'll need to manually connect your iPod to your iTUnes library in recovery mode using the instructions in the Apple support document below. Doing so will allow you to bypass the passcode and restore the iPod.

  • Since upgrading to iOS7 some text messages are not being sent, iMessage on my Ipad and MacBook doesn't have my phone number registered and my reminder colour on my Iphone keeps changing ... among other things

    Since upgrading to iOS7 some text messages are not being sent on my iPhone 5, iMessage on my Ipads and MacBook doesn't have my phone number registered and my reminder colour on my Iphone keeps changing ... among other things. Any suggestions to fix these faults?

    Make sure People Sending you via iMessage are sending their messages on your PHONE number not on your EMAIL addresses . My sister had the same problem, thats how i managed to solve it!

  • My wife and I have been texting on our iPhones. All of the sudden all messages are being sent as text. We cannot seem to make the iMessage work.

    Your question is almost too much a personal one, begging the question "do we (husband and wife) feel comfy sharing one account on the Mac"   maybe thats why nobody answered you.
    It doesnt complicate anything, but it adds steps for switching accounts on the Mac/ purchases etc. of course
    since your question is mostly personal, ..I wont answer THAT part of it, but creating a new account is easy.....messing with switching back and forth is also a personal preference 'issue' as well.   I prefer to keep things simple, but...........you and yours,  I dont know.......

  • I just got the iphone 4s and my text messages are showing as urgent to others,please help me fix this

    i just got the iphone 4s and my text messages are showing as urgent to others,please help me fix this

    As ckuan said, there's no way to mark messages as urgent from the phone. So, either your carrier is doing something and you'll need to contact them or it't something on the other end. Is it just one person who's seeing your texts as urgent? Or everyone?

  • Just upgraded to iOS 7 and messages are showing up on multiple phones within our family.  We all use the same iCloud account. I believe this happened the last time there was a major iOS upgrade but I can't remember what the fix was!  Help!

    The four members of my family just upgraded to iOS 7 last night.  We now find that we are receiving each other's text messages.  It's possible that during the installs, a few members may not have "unckecked" the multiple phone numbers they can be reached on.  I know that I had to uncheck my husbands work mobile number and work email address as they came up as choices for contacting me.  So now I am receiving some of my daughter's text messages on my phone - she's not impressed!  My husband is receiving my texts etc...  It's a mess!  I appreciate any help anyone can offer!

    I had this problem last night as well.  Only my daughter upgraded to iOS7 and she had an old phone of mine.  When she upgraded, the phone asked for my apple ID and then continued as normal.  However, after the upgrade, any text message that I recieved, she also recieved.  I am pretty sure my wife thought I was hammered when she started texting me and my daughter began answering her not having any clue what she was texting about.  Anyway, this only occurred with texts from other family members, not from texts I received from friends who are obviously not on our account (we have Verizon BTW).  To resolve this issue, and it isn't a short resolution.... there are two options...   One, simply erase everyting on the phone.... I don't like iTunes 11, so we were unable to back up her phone.  I made her go through her 600 photos, delete the ones she didn't want and email the ones she wanted to herself, and then we wiped the phone clean and rebooted it... go into Settings, General, Reset, Erase All Content and Settings.  The second option, if you have iTunes 11 is to back up the phones one at a time,  and then go into Settings, General, Reset, Erase All Content and Settings.  Either of these options wipes the phone clean of all information, text contacts pictures etc and then you have to re-enter all of your individual information.  When you do that, make sure that no one is on the same iTunes account.  Theoretically, after you do this, you plug back into your computer and SYNC your phone from the last back-up.  This resolved the problem for us.  I don't know if there is an easier solution, be we tried logging in and out of our iTunes Accounts, turning the power on and off, and nothing changed.  So, we had to go the more difficult route to avoid mass confusion with family texting.

  • My wife and I each have an iPhone 4S. With the upgrade to ios6 all text messages sent from my phone show up on hers to include responses from my text. text that she sends from her phone appear as if from mine. How do we stop it?

    My wife and I each have an iPhone 4S. Ever since the upgrade to ios6, text messages sent from my iPhone also appear on hers? All response to those text also show up on both devices. Likewise, text sent by her appear to others as having been sent from my iPhone. I have tried turning group messages off but nothing works. How can I correct this on both phones? Appreciate any help.

    You need a separate email address but you've already ruled out that solution.

  • Thanks for the upgrade to Firefox 4! Unfortunately, you don't say anywhere that it's not compatible with OSX 10.4. Might want to fix that so that other users don't run into this issue.

    After the latest upgrade to 3.whatever, Firefox asked if I'd like to upgrade to 4.0. I said yes, assuming (since Firefox has always been compatible before) that it'd install and work. It didn't. Why? Because Firefox is no longer supporting OSX 10.4, apparently. This should probably be noted SOMEWHERE so that trusting people like me don't screw up our existing Firefox.

    I looked for a link to the system requirements page before I downloaded to my PowerPC Mac, but I couldn't see it anywhere.
    However, I saw that Mozilla was bragging about supporting Windows XP whereas the new IE 9 did not. One would assume that if Mozilla was bragging about supporting that old Windows platform, they would also support a Mac platform of the same vintage.
    I did not assume wisely. I am very disappointed in the Mozilla team.
    For the record, I am running the latest version update of Leopard (10.5.?) on my PowerBook G4.

  • After iOS5 upgrade, I cant receive text messages

    Please help??

    Same thing happened to me what you have to do is go in to your account online and remove the iPhone as well as change your password.
    I called tmobile about it and they told me it could take up to 45 days for it to configure correctly and you will get text messages I do that and it worked by removing my iPhone and changing my password
    But I ended up getting an iPhone again anyway lol
    But try that
