    Hi Guys,

    Already I have one iphone5 using from past 3 years , Last weekend I bought one more Iphone5s .

    I have taken backup from old phone in my laptop then loaded the backup in new phone using same apple account.

    Now my concern is when any incoming calls in there one mobile other phone also starts ringing .

    Both phone has different sim of different operator. And it is vise versa for other phone.
    If call comes on new phone old phone also starts ringing.

    Its like both phone have became replica of each other. I can answer in any of phone.

    If call is coming in phone1, phone2 also starts ringing and I can answer the call from phone2 which is actually coming in phone1

    Can anyone explain me why it is happening ??
    NOTE : I have done factory reset for old phone.

    Welcome to the world of Apple's convergence of devices. Because the devices share an apple ID you can answer the call on ANY of them. When I get a call on my iPhone, as long as any of my other iDevices are connected to it somehow via being on the same Wi-Fi network, or via Bluetooth (such as my Apple Watch) I can take the call on any device. I often take calls on my iPad mini, or iMac when I'm working on them and a call comes in.


    EDIT: People still look at me funny (or in awe) when I take a call on my watch! lol
