- Incoming call rings on two different phones

It's due to the ID. If, we share IDS, for example, we could see each other's iMessages, everything. Happy to be corrected, however.

Hi folks. First time I've ever known this to
happen. Have updated both my iPhone 5c and iPhone 6 to 9.2. Both
phones have different numbers and I was chatting to a friend in order to check
for any bugs that might have come along with the upgrade. I asked her to call
me after I had ended the current call so I could check something else and she
did so but when she did call back, both my phones rung despite both phones having
completely different numbers. My friend said it happens with her iPhone
5s and iPhone 6 also. Does anybody know why this should be? My
friend reckons it is because they both have the same apple account but that
shouldn't mean a call made to one phone will also be routed to the
second. I can see privacy issues with this problem. In my
particular case, there is no privacy issue because I live on my own but in
situations where there are other family members then it might be a
problem. Also my friend said if I send her a text then that text will
also appear on her second phone (I haven't found that to be the case personally).
If I have one phone and a family member had another phone, different number but
sharing the same apple account then a personal call or text that is sent to me
could be easily answered or read by the other family member. Do you think
it is the fact that both phones are tied to the same Apple ID? Should
this really be happening, after all, if somebody hacked your apple ID and was
able to assign another phone to that ID then everything coming in would go to
the phone they have also. Walter.
