    I have an iPhone 6 and my wife has my old 5. We are using the same iTunes account. When I get a call the numbers come up on her phone and sometimes the two phones ring at the same time. Is there some easy way to fix this problem. Thanks

    Are you still on iOS 8? Open the Settings app scroll down to FaceTime. Toggle iPhone Cellular Calls OFF. Do this on both phones.

    Also be sure you're using separate ID's for iCloud, iMessage and Facetime.

    Also remember that if there are two (or more) phones (spouses would be a 'normal' situation to do it this way,) that having separate Apple ID's doesn't mean that both ID'S can't be linked to one credit card for purchases. Linking kids ID's to a parents credit card is a personal choice which I guess has to stand on its own merit in each case, but sharing an Apple ID isn't necessarily the best way to set up a device. There are a few more hoops to jump when having the '2nd' Apple ID linked to the original credit card, but at least when I set up my wifes and my phones and iPads it was certainly doable...
