New iphone 5 user, please someone guide me...lol

Member

Hi everyone, thanks for any help, I am a new user, and having problems with texting, seems I can not go to the message icon to send new message, I have to go to contacts and start there, is this correct? Getting very frustrated with this phone, my previous phone was a envy3, so easy to use. Thanks for any help.

Nickie1963, thanks for posting. Are you still having issues sending text messages? I would follow the suggestion of akdisney to send the messages. Also, do you have any issue receiving text messages?

I also have a texting question.  I have a shared plan with my wife, and she is getting a copy of the text message i am sending and receiving.  Is there a way to stop this?

thanks

It sounds like you are receiving iMessages and you and your wife share AppleIDs. You should change your imessage settings to have a unique ID for both of you. Maybe you can use your phone number in those settings. Hopefully someone who is much more familiar with imessage can clarify this process.
