I'm sending a text to my wifes iphone but it comes back to my phone!

Hi,

my wife and I both have iphones with virgin media sims (both registered to me). They both worked fine up until today but now when I try texting her the text comes back to my phone and any texts for her from other people are also coming to my phone. What on earth can be wrong?

Hi apcyberax,

As you may of guessed, mobile phones are not my speciality but if you mean the first thing you see at the top of the "Settings" then we are both signed in with our own ID but strangely, when I looked at my wife's phone, under the Apple Account it says "Update Apple ID Settings" with a red 1 but when I select it and click on continue it asks for the password for MY account rather than my wife's

Hi, Bazzer.

 

Thanks for posting. 

 

This sounds very strange. I'd personally back both up and then reset both phones to factory settings. Then restore the phones from the back up to see if this sorts it.

 

Find out more on our phone help guide

 

Kind regards,
