Iphone6 calling Iphone5 after landline call

I recently upgraded my Iphone 5 to a 6 and somehow yesterday I misplaced it so I called it with a normal phone and it rang, but what also happened was that the iphone 5 connected with the 6 and it started ringing as well. How was this possible? Both phones were on the same wireless network. Just tried it again and it didn't repeat, confused..

You haven't stated what the SIM card situation in both phones is.
Was SIM from 5 put into 6 or was old no. ported to a new SIM, or neither?

What about Air Drop?

Re: Iphone6 calling Iphone5 after landline call

"With iPhone Cellular Calling enabled across devices, providing all devices are on the same Wi-Fi network, an incoming call will ring every device."

You can read more about the new IOS 8 Continuity and Handoff and how to disable it here:

Hope this helps...

Re: Iphone6 calling Iphone5 after landline call

When my iPhone rings.. My MacBook rings too and any other iDevice that's switched on.. SMS goes to the MAC too.

I must remember to disable it, pain in the ass.
