    What do you mean "after my son's number"? Does the Find My iPhone app not display the "name" of your son's device?

    I got that after I restored my my phone as new. I went to Settings>General >About > changed the name back the way it was.

    That is interesting. I’ve had my iMac/MacBook Pro change names with the (number) appended, but I’ve never had an iPhone/iPad do it.

    Yep. I had my phone's name as Led's iPhone 5. But after restoring, it went to iPhone (2). They are all iPhone by default.
