  • 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 .

  • TS4268 My text messages are being sent and received with my email address instead of my phone number. How do I fix this?

    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 ios 6 messages that are being sent to me are also coming through on my husbands phone. how do i stop this from happening?

    since updating my iphone 4s with ios6 messages that are being sent to me are also being sent to my husbands iphone4. how do I stop this from happening?

    Do you have separate apple Ids? If not, set up a new Id for one of you. Ios 6 uses the apple Id to send messages across devices, that may be the issue you are having.

  • My imessages are being sent on multiple phones and i deleted the icloud account on the other phone but the messages still go through how do I stop this?

    Do you think deleting the message off the phone would make a difference?

    If you don't enter an e-mail address, it just uses SMS and MMS. iMessages (sent over the data connection instead of using your SMS messaging plan) require an e-mail address registered on the device.
    There is no requirement that you activate it.

  • HT1351 Whether or not I sync items on iTunes to my ipod, I cannot eject the ipod because a message keeps coming up and saying that my ipod cannot be ejected because it contains files that are being used by another application. How do I fix this?

    I just got an ipod classic 7th generation a couple days ago and I'm having a heck of a time with it. My latest problem is that with media on iTunes, I cannot eject the ipod because it says that it cannot be ejected because it contains files that are being used by another application. What application is this, and what do I do about it?

    Hi newipoduser,
    Here are some possible solutions:
    Do you use musicmatch jukebox on your computer? If you do, you have to go into task manager on windows and end process mim.exe. It interferes with disconnecting ext devices
    Empty your "trash/recycle bin."
    If that doesn't work, try quitting all your programs, especially music-type programs, basically things that look for mp3's etc.
    if that doesn't work, "log off" then "log on" and that should refresh/purge your OS system.
    Finally, you can restart your computer.
    Hope one of these helps!
    Cheers,

  • 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!
    Kerry

    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

  • HT4519 Default email is set but emails are being sent from another account

    I have set up my email accounts on my iPad and set the default email as my home email. I have just noticed that all emails sent from my iPad are being sent from a different account.  What am I missing?

    Edit the address book entry to uncheck use display names. If you want to disable it completely Tools menu (Alt+T) > options > advanced >reading and Display and turn off the use of display names.
    You never had this issue with Outlook.... The question is what did the recipient see, not what did you see. If they did not use Outlook there is a good chance they saw what was in their address book. You can address your mail as sent by "Very Important person from Very Profitable Company" If I add you to my address book as "The Goblin" I see "The Goblin" This is because Thunderbird places control in the hands of the user. Outlook does not. Note the Multiple ways to view a message body on the view menu.
    I get your frustration, but your no longer using Outlook. Outlook is an excellent exchange client. I find it actually does email badly.

  • Why do i keep getting texts that are not sent to me?

    Well it started when i wanted to explore the new software (iOS 6.0) provided by Apple on my old iPhone 3Gs. i asked my dad to call me so i could try out the new feature in whitch you send messages straight from the lock-screen. so i sent the message "call you back later" (on of the default opitions) and the message went through. Then shortly after i received a message from my own contact name and that repeated the message as if someone else had sent it. so i sent myself a message on that chat and i looked on previous chats with my dad and it showed up as if he had sent it. i also received it from him this time.
         this just started happening when the new software came out: (iOS 6.0). after this all happened i went through my texts history and there are conversations that i never had. all the conversations seem to be from my dad texting another person. as i am looking through all this i figure that i must have put his icloud username when i restarted my iphone. so i went to settings and deleted his acount from my phone replacing it with mine. after replacing it, the conversations were still there. i also receive a text message intended for my father. when my fater replies, my phone tells me that i had sent the message.
         I need and answer thank you from your help.

  • SMS text that are received/sent are off my 2 hours.

    I have a fairly new iphone 3GS and the time is displayed correctly on the phone and when I receive/send emails but it is 2 hours ahead on some of the SMS texts that i send and receive. This is happening between mine and my wifes iphone. It is becoming very annoying.
    I have checked all the time settings on both iphones. I have turned "auto time" on/off numerous times. I have synced both iphones numerous times. And I have reset both iphone. Still no fix.
    Is this an iphone problem? A telus network problem? Is the iphone displaying the time that the Telus cell tower said the SMS was sent?
    Thanx

    Is the iphone displaying the time that the Telus cell tower said the SMS was sent?
    I believe so, and the same for email which is determined at the incoming mail server for received messages and the outgoing mail server for sent messages.

  • 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.

  • Text Messages are being sent as email only to another vzw user. Not able to send text to a mobile device?

    I am on a Galaxy S4. Sending text as usually, recipient gets an email of the text. Is is my settings or theirs? What needs to be changed?

    Are you entering their name from your contact list to send the text?  Or typing in their phone number?  The email may be what's being populated by default when you pull their name from the contact list, if that's how they have replied to you previously, or how you sent your last message to them. Try manually typing in their phone number in the To: field and see if it sends as a text or as an email when you do that.

  • I have an Iphone 5 and I'm abroad at the moment. My iMessages keep being sent from my phone number even though I took out my SIM card. My question is, will I be charged for them because they are being sent from my phone number and not my email?

    This might be a stupid question but I'm quite concerned that my phone bill will be sky high because of it.

    Hi mlemonache,
    Here's a blip from the IOS Message support site:
    On iPhone, if iMessage is unavailable, the message may be sent as SMS or MMS, depending on content. Carrier messaging rates may apply. You can adjust this behavior in iPhone at Settings > Messages > Send As SMS. Messages sent using iMessage appear in a light blue bubble, while messages sent using SMS or MMS appear in a green bubble.
    Here is a link to the site:

  • 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.

    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. Any ideas?

    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.......
