    Hi All

    At the weekend I set up my new Lumia 925. After signing in I restored the backup not from the phone it's replacing but my other (work) phone, as there were a few things I had configured better on there.

    Since then any texts to my personal number (the new phone) are also being delivered to my work phone. Does anyone know how I can stop this please. Thankfully nothing has been sent me yet that could get me in to trouble, but still would like to "break the link" as soon as possible

    Sounds odd. SMS are sent to a SIM, not a handset. Are they definitely SMS? Have you got only one SIM or is your carrier moving you from one to another?

    If you have the same MS account in both phones you get same txts and mails to both phones as a copy. Both phones are using same phone book.

    Yup, they're definitely SMS messages. I had wondered on the first couple, but the one from my mum yesterday can only be SMS.

    It looks like I have sorted it (just testing now) - the new phone had SMS backup option on, and because both phones were on the same account they were being instantly restored (as unread) on the other. Option changed and all seems good now.

    Thanks for your help
