It used to be (still is on my High Sierra MacBook Pro) all I needed to do was untick "Calls from iPhone" in macOS FaceTime app prefs:


But now (on my Mojave MacBook Air) this seems to do nothing. All incoming phone calls ring on my iPhone and launch and ring on FaceTime on MacBook. Even when my iPhone is in airplane mode.

I'd rather not (because I'd still like to be able to place outgoing calls—and it's not necessary on my older machine), but I also tried disabling "Cellular / Calls on Other Devices / Allow Calls on [Mojave MBA]" (and disabling the entire "Allow Calls on Other Devices", not just the MBA), yet this didn't stop the calls either.

And I've tried rebooting both MacBook and iPhone. And logging out/in of iCloud.

Apple tech support had me reset PRAM, but this did nothing. Anyone else having this trouble?

  • I tried disabling it on the phone too.

  • In that case, you have run into a bug ;-) if you disable it both ways you should at least have a base case where nothing reacts to calls. Nov 17, 2018 at 8:16
