ipad/iphone help needed please

ok, so daughter got a shiny new ipad from santa. she's not old enough to have her own apple id so i've hooked it up to mine. trouble is, whenever her friends text or facetime her, it comes through on my phone as well. any idea how i 'unhook' the two devices? or is it just easier to set up her own apple id?

I would just set one up in her name, if there is an age restriction just say shes that old, you can change your DOB amazingly later on.

If you go to settings, messages, there's an option called 'send and receive'. Within there you can choose what addresses and phone numbers are received on each device.
The same set of options is under facetime.

Mrs Bazza and I use the same apple account, and this works perfectly for us. (Means we both get access to all music and paid for apps too.)

Mind you, both our devices are iPhones, so we have the option of two different phone numbers under those settings.
If your daughter has an iPad, does that mean you only have one phone number associated with that account, and therefore what are her friends supposed to use for her contact details?

Go into FaceTime settings and just select which numbers/email accounts you want active on each device. I think that setting it for FaceTime also does the settings for iMessage. (My wife and I have a number of Apple devices - 2 iPhones, 3 iPads plus iMac and macbook air all linked to the same apple account and we just receive the messages/facetimes we want on each.)
