    I have an iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, both running IOS 9.3.1 and both connected to the same iCloud account. Neither device has bluetooth enabled. There is also an iPhone 6 running IOS 9.3.1 and connected to a different iCloud account. It has bluetooth enabled. The iPad only has WiFi, no cellular. All three devices are on the same WiFi network.

    Right after upgrading to IOS 9.3.1 the iPad sometimes rings when a call is received on either iPhone. Not sure why it does it only on certain calls. And not sure why it does it at all.

    Suggestions as to what's going on?

    On your iPhone go to Settings > Phone and look at the Calls on Other Devices option. Turn off the iPad and/or other devices if you don't want the option of answering calls on them.

    This works thorugh wi-fi when your iPad and iPhone are on the same network, so bluetooth on/off does not affect it.

    The iPhone 4S has such a setting and it was already OFF. The iPhone 6 does not have that setting - maybe because it's on a different iCloud account?

    I know that one of the calls that rang on the iPad was a FaceTime call to the iPhone 6. Facetime is now off on that phone and it was already off on the 4S.

    I'll wait and see what happens next.

    Sounds like you've probably found the cause.

    Yes, the iPad to be on the same iCloud account for phone calls to be answered on a second device.

    Facetime is a seperate setting that has to be turned and set up for each device, however it can only use a phone number as an address if that phone uses the same Apple ID.
