Hello, i upgraded my iphone and my parents iphone to iOS 8. We all shared the same acciunt as for downloading apps, music, and books for once. When upgraded we started to receive the same call in all devices when connected to the same wifi network. Is there someway to desactivate this function or to add different numbers as when you add emails for use in facetime or imessage?

I don't have iOS 8 yet, but this is likely the WiFi calling feature that they were talking about at the iPhone 6 keynote. You might want to go through the settings to see if you can disable that option..

As Ashwin pointed out, this is because you have Wifi calling enabled. Disable it and you should be OK. You should only use WiFi calling when your cellular signal is degraded. Disable it on your phone and your parents.
