I made a change somewhere on my phone yesterday and it has caused me to not only see my own calls made in my recents, but my wife's as well (we share the ICloud ID.(

Any idea how I managed this and what to do to get back to only showing my own calls? I have no idea what caused this.

Have your wife create a new/her own Apple ID. That should resolve the problem.

In answering your question, my guess is you tied either the phone numbers of yourself or your wife to FaceTime. Try to disable FaceTime altogether (on both phones) for a moment to test this theory.

Facetime was only enabled for my number, but I blew it off anyway, since I never use it. As to using the same ID, we've done it this way for years. It was only yesterday I changed something which brought in a bunch of her calls into my history. I just don't know what because I changed a number of settings.
