    I use iMessage and find my friend but my sisters name and picture comes up. I checked my setting and I am signed in with my ID and even checked to make sure my ID has my name and info (which is right) anyone else have this issue or know how to get this fixed?

    Thanks

    I am assuming that you and your sister share an Apple ID? iMessage is tied to your email address, not only your Apple ID. Go to "Settings -> Messages -> Recieve At" and check to see what email address is listed.

    If it is the same as your sisters, then you need to add your own email address, and once verified, delete the one that is shared.

    This is the same for FaceTime too.

    Hope this helps!

    Nope never shared apple IDs. She doesn't have any apple products, she lives 600 miles away from me. I checked FaceTime and nothing has her on it in setting or anything

    Something similar happened to me... it had my other twitter account that I don't use or even associate with. Do you use twitter and is she one of your twitter friends?

    This happened to me also.

    I think (fixed it day iOS5 came out, bad memory!) I fixed the issues by going into settings --> safari --> autofill --> myinfo and setting that to my name and info in contacts.

    Did she used to own he iPad? It could be that she's using your Apple id maybe just for iMessage.

    No she did not own it or even use it... I think going through safari and doing the auto fill my info work. I believe that fixed it! Thanks guys!
