    This is strange. My wife and I are on the Verizon family plan. Both phones are technically in my name, but one is hers and one is mine.

    If I send her a text or vice-versa, it shows up in a new message window on my phone as well.

    In other words, I text her...she receives the text...but so do I, in a different window (addressed from me to me).

    Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    Are these 'texts' blue or green in colour?

    If the texts are 'blue' in color then its an Apple issue. If its 'green' in color then it most likely is a Verizon issue.

    Go into settings / messaging. I bet you'll see both of your numbers checked. I used to have that issue and unchecked my wife's number and it solved it.
