    after updating to iOS 12 when I text my daughter the text goes to my grand-daughter’s phone. They are different phone numbers. Texting works fine on my iPhone, it’s just my ipad. Contact info is the same on both devices. I even deleted contact info from both devices and entered my daughter’s phone number manually to text and the text still went to my grand kids number. any ideas from anyone? thank you.. thus is my 1st forum use.

    Have you tried a reset on your iPad?

    Press the home and power buttons until the iPad goes off and release them when the apple image comes back onto the screen. (This often helps when something goes wrong and is quite safe in terms of your iPad data, etc.)

    Try deleting your grandkid’s number, send a few texts to your daughter, then add your grandkid’s number to the contacts list again.

    What happens if you delete your daughter’s number then add it back?

    same thing, but I found a thread at another forum .. discussions.apple.com that has a number of people complaining about the same problem after iOS 12 update.
