    I noticed today that when my wife gets a call on her iPhone 5S running iOS 8 it also rings on my iPhone 6 Plus running iOS 8. It also happens in the other direction - when I get a call it rings on her phone as well.

    Checking settings I see that both phones have Handoff turned off. I don't believe that either has family sharing set up ... when I check in settings I see a line which says, "Set Up Family Sharing" ... it's the same on both phones.


    Is there any way to turn off whatever is causing this?

    If you are both signed into the same iCloud account, the best solution would be to use separate iCloud accounts. If you are not, then it would have to be a wireless provider issue.

    We do share an Apple ID and we share our calendar appointments so not sure that giving her a separate ID would be practical.

    Go to Settings > Facetime and turn off the switch next to iPhone cellular calls.



    Edit: Do this on both devices.

    Sounds like you need seperate Apple ID and then set up family sharing for calendar appointments, or share a calendar.

    This is what I do with my wife and me.

    It is practical. The intended way to do this is simply have separate apple ids and then just share your calendar with her.

    You can still share almost all of the content on your iOS devices even if you have separate iCloud accounts.

    Just use family sharing to resolve your issue and make her a new apple id.
