    Hello,

    I want to ask about text forwading feature on iphone

    So I have 2 phone number, iphone 5 and iphone 7

    my iphone 5's text was set text forwading to iphone 7, so all text sms received at iphone 5 can also be received at iphone 5.

    but I got confused when there's text incoming, because I can't identify the sms was originally from iphone 5 or iphone 7

    Is there anyway to identify this ?

    pls help

    thx in adv

    I don’t know. I’m poor and have only one iPhone.
    Hopefully someone else will come along to help you out.

    Not that I’m aware. I mean which iPhone is your primary device and which phone number you give the most? The one for the iPhone 5 or the one for the iPhone 7?

    Well .. they’re iphone 5 with “rainbow alike screen” and iphone 7 with “kinda drained battery life”. So, that should tell I’m not rich either

    Iphone 7 is my daily use phone, because the number is my work number
    Iphone 5 is my private number, which I rarely use, mainly for my bank otp usage only. That’s why I fwd my text to iphone 7, so that I don’t have to carry around 2 phone

    But sometime, i received some unknown number (friends or spam), which I’m not able to identify the sms for the “from/for which number”

    Yes, i can find it out by asking if the text was from my friends manually, but it just kinda annoyed me when i scroll through my messages and can’t clearly identify the “from/for”

    It’s actually pretty simple. Follow me here.

    You set your iPhone 5 to forward messages to your iPhone 7.

    Thus, every message that shows up on your 5 also shows up on your 7.

    The reverse is not the case though. If someone directly messages your 7 then it is only on your 7.

    There you have it. Messages on both your 5 and 7 started by a message to your 5. Messages only on your 7 were directly messaged to your 7.

    Are you logged into your iCloud account on both devices? If you are, then you should have all your contacts on both devices. And I'd think that (although I don't have 2 iPhones) iMessage sync would work here.

    Now, if you are definitely wanting to keep both devices separate, one for work and one for personal, then you need to carry both devices. Personally, if this were me, I'd carry both devices and keep work and personal separate.
