    I talked my girlfriend into getting an iPhone 6S+ and she loves it however she is using my Apple ID which I thought would be fine however I've been noticing in my recent calls it looks like I'm calling her and and calling myself? My name is Ed. How can I stop this? We shared the same Apple ID years ago when she had the iPhone 4 and there were no issues. Any help please?

    Why exactly do you share an ID? Apple has a nice sharing program set up so you don't have to share Apple IDs and have stuff like this happen.

    Its because we generally use the same apps so instead of both of us paying for it, the other just needs to download it. Can you share apps too? Sorry, I have been off of an iPhone for 2 years and just came back about a month ago

    Use separate Apple IDs for iCloud, iMessage, etc. You can use the same Apple ID for the App Store... or, as suggested above, use the Family Sharing option.
