    I'm not sure where to post this, but I'll try here.

    Updated my phone and my daughter's phone to iOS7 and now I am receiving imessages her friends send to her phone on my phone. While it's a great parental control feature any idea how to correct this?
    Don't use the same Apple ID on both phones for iMessage, and FaceTime

    Ok, I'm posting this for someone else who doesn't know a lot about her phone and I don't know anything about this, where would we find the Apple ID. Is that under general, settings and about where it says iPhone name?

I get that there are alot of people upgrading. But REALLY After 24 hours I am still Waiting for an activation..... Kinda REDIC !!!

    Ok found the Apple ID and changed it and she is still getting duplicate imessages to two phones, instead of one. Any other ideas?

    If anybody else is having the same problem we were--receiving duplicate texts for other phones on the same account--here's the fix: settings, messages, send and receive--remove the other phone numbers. Spent over an hour and a half at the apple store and they had NO CLUE how to fix it. Thank goodness for tech savvy teens!
