Just activated two iPhone 6s. Now, when people call me, the call also reaches my wife's iPhone. How can I make it stop?

Incoming calls to my new iPhone 6 also are received by my wife's new iPhone 6.  Tried settings but couldn't find a cause.  Found a spot on MyVerizon that showed my phone responding to either number.  Deleted number associated with my wife's phone.  I don't get her calls on my device, but she gets both mind and hers on her device.  (I don't get her calls on my device.)  Suggestions?  Thanks!

I had this problem also, They should fix this. You can go to settings, Face time, then see if iPhone Cellular calls is selected, if so Unselect on Both phones. This fixed my problem. This is a default setting when to or more devices are signed on with the same iTunes account. Hey Apple, this should NOT be on by default, at least Ask the user if they want it on.

This should fix your problem, if it doesn't completely fix it also in the same Face Time settings also go down on the list and select only the phone number associated with each phone.

dbrigham, we don't want you to miss another call! Did you activate the Call Forwarding feature on your mobile number? Try dialing *73 from your device. You will hear a confirmation beep and end that call. For more information regarding the Call Forwarding feature, click http://vz.to/1vcH6VY
