Text, or iMessage? With iMessage, that situation is easy to create if you and your wife have iPhones, and you're both signed into iMessage on your phones with the same Apple ID.ok, my son sent a text just to my wife and I got a copy of it, we are NOT in group SMS

I will have to check her phone when I get home to see if we are linked.
You definitely are. You can all share an Apple ID for iTunes purchases, but you will each need your own iCloud accounts. If the three of you have iPhones and are getting each others' messages, it's because of having one iCloud account between the three of you. Or at least you and your wife most likely are using the same iCloud account.
I agree. Share the same Apple ID for iTunes/App stores, but use unique Apple IDs for iCloud, iMessage and FaceTime.
It's not required to sign into iMessages using your Apple ID -- you can just use your phone number. Maybe something in the iOS 7 update signed you in (using the Apple ID your family shares) for the first time ever.ok, I will look into it, we all use the same iTunes account (mine), I never had this issue until I updated to IOS 7.
