I hope someone can help me with this issue.
My son, who is at a sleepover as I type this, sent me a text message earlier from his iPhone to my iPhone, saying good morning. Sweet, huh? Awww.... However, instead of his name coming up as the sender, the displayed name was my own email address! So in fact my first reaction to seeing a 'Good morning' message was, "Who the Hell is this?!?".
How can this happen? I got him to send a quick message to his father, who said our son's name came up as the sender of that message.
The only way a message can be sent from my personal email address is by using my 'puter (which I am using now) or via my iPhone (this I have only done twice as I prefer to tend to my email through my computer). My email address is on my contacts list, nor is it associated with my son's contact details in any way.
So....any ideas on how my 12 year old son managed to send me a text message from his iPhone to mine using my email address? It is a worry as I had sudden visions of someone hacking into my computer to send me a text message. And while my son is savvy where technology is concerned, he doesn't know how to hack into anything, and has no wish to (he's a very rules- and laws-bound boy and is horrified when people hack into systems LOL).
