    Weird issue with my Apple Watch.

    My watch is non cellular. When my husband and I are both home (under the same WiFi), calls that are meant for him ring on my watch. They don’t ring my phone at all. Just my watch.

    My only “clue” is that this happens when the people calling him are also in my contacts list (such as family members)

    They’re calling him, but my watch is ringing. How can I fix this?

    Are you signed into your own iCloud account on your own phone?

    It seems like a lot of people are reluctant to have their own Apple ID for some reason.

    4 people,mother and 3 kids.
    She was I. A store complaining she is getting all her kids texts, contacts, music download and apps. Also, she couldn’t back up to the cloud.

    She was asked if everyone shares the same Apple ID.

    She said yes so she could monitor the kids. the apple specialist handled it well.
    They set up a support call for her.

    Honestly, I think there’s a knowledge knowledge gap between multiple users, Apple ID, family sharing, Apple Music and iTunes Store

    You can use separate appleids. The kids and I share one for the store, started long before family sharing came out. Then we each have our own for iCloud/email/messages. We are sharing data there, just turned that on so they can backup.

    Oh but my mom is queen of setting up her ID on my Dad’s devices. And my grandma’s, and the phone they handed down to my daughter.... it was quite funny.

    OP.check the forwarding - “you can be reached at” numbers/devices. It can take awhile to track down and get them all correct.
