Want to use Alexa calling but both phones ring
« on: May 11, 2017, 06:19:20 am »
My wife and I share a prime account. 

With Alexa, we like to have access to the same shopping list.

I set up my iPhone to enable calling to it but when I tried to do the same with her iPhone it didn't give me the option of setting it up in her name.  When I told Alexa to call me by name, both phones rang.

Is there a way to differentiate the phones?

I have the account, and previously my wife set herself up as a member of the same household in my Prime account.  So, have you ever done this; it might help.

Anyway we currently have both our phone numbers in our Alexa apps.  When testing,  I left a voice message for myself via a Dot, and it indicated it was from her.  My cell phone rang and also all the Alexa gadgets did too.  I answered either via my phone or another Dot.  It all appeared to be working fine.

i went to my wife's iPhone and deleted her Alexa app.  When I reinstalled the app I was able to set her up as a separate account as far as calling went.  Pretty cool!
