    My mom has an iPad (that is on my Apple ID) with iOS 6 freshly installed on it. But now every time I get a phone call or text on my iPhone she gets a notification with what it says and who its from. My question is, is how I stop it?

    I think you'll have to turn it off in notifications.

    Go to settings - Messages - turn iMessage off.

    This is going to be a huge privacy issue for many users! IMessage was sending duplicate texts to my other IPhone, but not the other way around.

    iMessage in iOS 6 is a joke. The simple fix of separate Apple ID for iMessage for each device and 1 main apple id for all your iTunes/apps purchases is no longer Easy. Spent too much time ensuring devices were only able to receive messages intended for them. Makes no sense that Apple would think people with 2 iPhones ( husband and wife) and an iPad and iMac would want any message sent to one device to go to all of them.

    More annoying than useful at this point.

    Go to settings > messages > send & receive on your iPhone and see if both your email and phone number are linked to iMessage. Uncheck or remove your email if it is and go to the ipad and do the same by adding your moms email and unchecking or removing your email. That way she can use imessage herself through her email on the ipad if she wants or just turn it off. I'm assuming your email address is linking both your iPhone and ipad, so you can remove that link.
