MY WIFE'S IPHONE NUMBER IS SHOWING UP ON MY NEW IPHONE 12 PRO AS THE NUMBER FOR MY PHONE . THESE NUMBERS HAVE BEEN ASSIGNED AND USED BY US FOR DECADES. WENT THRU THE NEW PHONE SETUP PROCEDURE AND THIS HAS HAPPENED. I CAN NOT RECIEVE VERIFICATION CODE SENT TO MY PHONE NUMBER FROM APPLE BECAUSE ANY CALLS OR TEXT SENT TO THIS NUMBER RESULTS IN A MESSAGE THAT SAYS "FORWARDED TO AN AUTOMATED MESSAGING SERVICE". ONLY MY WIFE'S PHONE IS OPERATIONAL AT THIS TIME.
Please look at this --> If you can't activate your iPhone - Apple Support
If you are the owner or the owner has shared all information with you then to open Activation Lock:- If it is Activation locked, read here --> Turn off Activation Lock - Apple Support Activation Lock for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch - Apple Support
Learn how to remove a device from a previous owner's account.
If you are not the owner and do not have the Apple ID and Password then there is no way that you can get into this iPhone unless the original owner shares the Apple ID and password with you. If you are lucky you can get into this iPhone if they (owner) accidentally remove the device from their apple ID.
IS ANYONE THERE? HELP NEEDED PLEASE!
