    So here is the situation.

    I have an phone number tied to my Apple ID that I use for work, it's on an iPhone 4S.

    I would like to add an iPhone 5 to my family plan but want to be able to get texts and phone calls all on one phone.

    Since in iOS6 it let's you tie a phone number into your Apple account would it work to set up the new phone with a new number with my existing Apple ID?

    So, in theory, if this works I would be able to forward calls from my business line to the iPhone 5 and answer texts to the business line since it is all in the same Apple ID (all of the people in our office have iPhones so all use iMessage).

    Should work. We had the reverse problem, when iMessage/iCloud was introduced my wife and I shared 1 Apple ID which meant we were getting each others messages and reminders until we created a new ID for her.

    Yes I see more people that had this happen that didn't want it, so that is good news for me, I guess.

    I have 4 iphones on my ATT account.

    2 of them share an Apple ID - and we do not get each others anything.

    Well it should have changed in iOS6. Did you upgrade both phones?

    The more I read the more it sounds like it should work.
