Are you syncing your contacts to the same google account?

I'll have to check her phone when I see her later. I don't remember setting it up to sync to my gmail only to my computer. But that would make since. Thankyou for your rapid reply. tt

I would guess you are syncing to the same gmail account as well.
Probably from mobile, maybe. Smiley Happy

Yep, it sounds like you guys are using the same Google account.  You enter this info when you first boot the phone. Once you do, syncing of contacts and Gmail is pretty much be default, and happens automatically unless you turn it off.

 

You should enter different Google accounts for the 2 phones.  If you don't have seperate Google accounts, you should create a new one.
