Accidentally cloned phone

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK -

I got my wife an iPhone 6 but when set­ting it up, I fool­ishly used my backup. Now when­ever I re­ceive a text, it ap­pears on both phones! An­drew Mather The car­rier set­tings are tied to the SIM card, and you can’t change the phone num­ber just by back­ing it up from an­other phone. I think all that’s hap­pened is you have set it up for your iCloud ac­count and her phone is re­ceiv­ing mes­sages through Wi-Fi from your ac­count while it‘s in range of Wi-Fi. Tap Set­tings > Gen­eral > Re­set > Erase All Con­tent and Set­tings, to take the phone back to its ‘out of the box’ state and you can set it up again. Or let her do it this time!
