    My phone number and email keeps getting activated on my wife's Iphone and Ipad for imessage and/or facetime. I can uncheck them, but they are still available in the devices. Then, I'll get a message on my phone saying that her Ipad/Iphone is using my number or email for imessage or facetime. I can't figure out how to get them out of her devices.
    Also, her phone number and email are on my devices. I dont want them there. I dont want to spy on her or ever be tempted to. If I'd activate these, I'd be able to see all of her imessages and facetime calls.

    This has to be a problem for a lot of others out there.

    Is there anyone that can tell me how to get these unwanted numbers and emails off of the devices?

    Thanks

    I guess your sharing a Apple ID?

    Set up separate icloud accounts for you and your wife, use those for icloud, facetime, and imessage. You can still use the original account in the itunes store for purchases to share.

    Use different email accounts for your iCloud account, not your iTunes account.

    You can share calendars with each other. That is how my wife and I handle seeing each others' calendars. You can make them read only or read-write.

    Hopefully he has fixed the problem since it happened in 2012.
