My son and I seem to get cross text messages.  Messages to him show on my phone and my respinses show on his.  He also says my calendar entries show in his phone?  Can anyone ahed light in why and what the fix might be?

    rbcma85, it seems both iPhones are sharing the same Apple ID. You have to set up a separate Apple ID for each iPhone.

If he sets up new account will he lose his saved data?

    rbcma85, changing the Apple ID shouldn't because you're not erasing the iPhone. But I wouldn't rely on anything with 100% certainty with Apple, lol.

  I took the iOS 9.3 updated a few days ago and 1000 iTunes songs, 10 videos, and two ringtones, disappeared from the iPhone. Fortunately I back things up and restored them. Only to have them disappear again the next day. Brought them back again and they have now stayed.
