Both of my kids are contacts in my phone. I sent a text to my son and it went to my daughter. I have tried to type in his number and it still goes to her. I can call him and it calls his phone and vice versa. He can also text me. It’s only when I try to text him that it shows up on his sisters phone and it looks like I have sent the original text to him.

Re: Help!

Hi, Ashleywest,


Let's take a look at the misdirected texts. We recommend removing the contact information for both your son and daughter and reenter their information fresh. Let us know if that does the trick. If not, what type of devices does everyone use?
