    Hey all.

    I have recently upgraded both of my mobiles so that I have two Windows 8 devices, a Nokia 925 and a 520.
    They are of course two separate numbers and Sim cards.

    When setting up the 925 I ran a 'restore' on my Windows 8 PC.

    The 925 imported the threads from my old phone.

    Now, If I get a text message on one phone, it appears on the other as well.
    I have yet to work out if there is a time difference, so maybe the threads are just synced in the cloud...

    But does this happen to anyone else?

    They are not even the same network, one is EE and the other is Tesco

    I am thinking it could be that I have 'text backup' and 'thread backup' on, whilst using a single Windows log in for both devices. :- in Message settings


    Switched them off and testing now.

    Will update.

    I also have this on 920/620/1020, on my Both WP 7.8 Devices with Same Live ID theres nothing.

    I was a little Suprised to see a new Message on my 620 Test Phone with GDR3 which has no SIM Card Installed... ;-)
    Nice Feature but you should be able to Disable it cause i also use 4 SIM Cards with 2 Numbers in my 5 Devices and don't want Messages mixed up...

    Its text message backup. Turn it off and you'll be set.
