I have "Calls from iPhone" turned off on my iPad and yet it insists on ringing for call to my phone. These aren't actually FaceTime calls, they are spam calls from robo-dialers out there. I have my iPhone set to send all unknown callers to voicemail so it blips at best before going silent. My iPad though, it is stuck ringing and showing me the caller rather than letting me go on about whatever I was doing on it.

What settings am I missing here? At this point I think I only want my phone and watch to ring when a call comes in. Sure it seems nice to have my computers ring, but I have too many and it is obnoxious with everything ringing, especially when it is just spam calls.

AFAIK that’s the only setting you’d need. iOS 13 has been one of the glitchiest I can remember... maybe it’s a bug?

I'm so glad I didn't try these out when they were in beta. I'll go with it is a bug. I know I can disable sharing from the iPhone, but I want the ability to enable it on the other devices if I don't have my phone handy. There are a few times where I only take my Watch and MBP.

I noticed that I hadn't updated to the latest 13.1.2 on my iPad when I started this thread. My phone was at 13.1.2 though. I'll have to see if it rings the next time I get a call from an unknown number.

Well, the iPadOS update to 13.1.2did not fix the calls going to my iPad.

Then look for an error in the settings of your gadget. And what does Apple technical support say?
