    Default How to sync iMessage between iPhone and iPad

    What are the correct settings to have iMessage sync and notify me properly between my iPhone and iPad? Another problem I've had with trying to set this up is that my wife and I share the same apple ID. Obviously we don't want to share text messages. How can I set this up correctly?

    In settings go to messages for your phone and go to "recieve at" and put the same email you set up messages for your iPad.

    If you use the same apple id you may have to share text messages on the iPad seeing there can only be one messages account per iPad.

    You and your wife need different iCloud accounts. Not iTunes accounts, but iCloud accounts. This is where your messages are managed.

    You should set the Caller ID in your Messages settings to be your email address on both your iPad and iPhone. This way when you send an iMessage, it has the same return address for both devices.
