Can you disconnect iMessage from multiple devices?

    I have 3 devices that have iMessage:

    iPhone 6 (personal)
    iPhone 6 (work)
    MacBook Air (personal)

    Currently, iMessages from both phones will appear in iMessage on my MacBook Air. Is it possible only get my personal iMessages to push to the Air? I'd like to keep the work phone totally separate from my personal devices (although I only have 1 Apple ID and it's signed into both phones).

    Anyone know how I can do this? Thank you!!

    You can do it by getting a different AppleID for your work phone.

    You can still have the same iTunes Store account on both phones so you can share apps and purchases. But you'll have to create a different AppleID and log into iCloud with it on your work phone. You will however end up with separate Contacts on both phones....modifying one won't change the other, etc.
