Ask GG* how do I prevent my iPhone texts from showing up on my iPad?

Welcome to Ask GG (Gadget Girl – Tracey)!
Today’s question:
Ask GG* how do I prevent my iphone texts from showing up on my iPad?
*Should text messages go to both devices or do they only go to one or the other?
If you have signed into the messages/Facetime on both devices using the same Apple ID – then yes the messages will go to both.
The easiest way to prevent your iPhone texts from showing up on your iPad is to change the Apple ID that you use with your iMessages/FaceTime.
1)     You will need to create a new Apple ID.
2)     Go to Settings > Messages > Send and Receive 
3)     Enter your new Apple ID

Hope that helps…
