I set a reminder on the calendar on my iPhone. The notification also showed up on my husband's Android phone and on my Fire Tablet. At the risk of sounding stupid, what is this sorcery???

Possibly the Fire Tablet(Apple ID and Amazon ID are both my gmail address), but not DH's phone.

Nope. DH doesn't have an icloud account.

If he's in your contacts? I've never had that happen before. Maybe he set the same Reminder?

Can't help you. I'm still trying to figure out the time I said jokingly to Siri to tell my kids to go to bed already and she started dialing my oldest's number.... How it knew he was my son is beyond me.

Have you ever logged into your account on his phone?
