    Hello. I have two iPhones with same apple ID's, but whenever I block a number from calls, messages etc. that same number pops in the blocked list of the other iPhone. but in fact, i don't want to be blocked in that phone, and even i don't want that blocking to be seen at all.

    what should I do, except creating a separate account for that device?

    thanks.

    I would also like to know.

    What's weird is I have two 6 Plus's(work and personal) and wife has a 5. Now none of my personal phone show up but all my work ones do. Since I get a lot of calls and miss some my wife is getting annoyed.

    Why not simply have separate Apple IDs for iCloud purposes? Given that it would be the simplest solution to that type of problem?

    I echo C DM's recommendation. Not only will your iOS devices share those blocked numbers in the Phone app but also on the FaceTime and Messages on both your iOS and OS X devices that are logged in to that iCloud account! Also, your call and missed call logs shown in your iOS devices will also show up on your Mac - I loaned one of my backup iPhones to my business partner about a month ago and couldn't believe at how many calls he was making were showing up on my iPhone and Macs.

    I use VZW's FamilyBase option, a $5 per month add on that also allows for blocking of restricted and blocked numbers (!!!) in addition to 20 entered numbers. AFAIK, VZW is the only US wireless company that has that kind of option, but I don't know where you're at.

    Actual messages are not shared just call logs and blocks. My wife doesn't get any of the mesages.

    I was referring to the phone call logs in the "Messages" app on iOS and OS X devices, not voice messages...
