Text tones ringing twice for one message

I just started noticing that on my iPhone 4S when I receive a new text message the text tone will ring twice almost stuttering in the beginning and ending cleanly. It didn't bother me in the beginning until now I am getting annoyed since I constantly think I am getting two messages, but only get one. I've tried multiple different text tones, but all seem to be having the same issue.

Whoops. Have not been awake long enough to read the OP. And you're right mine does this too.

Registered just so I could reply to this topic.

I have the exact same problem. Bought my 4s the weekend of launch. I have vibrate on along with Tri-tone set for all my alerts (voice mail, text, etc). It stutters/skips right in the middle of the Tri-tone but finishes clearly. However, when the phone rings, it doesn't stutter/skip.

I have resorted to turning vibrate off. It doesn't stutter/skip with vibrate off.

Mine will do this sporadically on my iPhone 4, too. Don't know how to make it stop but eventually it goes away.

Has everyone done a restore from a ios5 on ios4 that has this problem? I was experiencing the same problem from an iCloud restore...so wiped the phone and set it up from scratch...PITA..but it fixed the problem

The text vibrate pattern was changed in iOS 4 (or one of the point updates). Emails etc get a single vibrate, texts get a 'double' vibrate, which is one short vibration followed by a longer one.

This works, I've just done a full restore and it's stopped the stutter.

I am having the same problem. I went into settings>Notifications>Mesages>Repeat alert Never. Doesn't fix it and it is becoming annoying that when I don't open the message it pops back up in a couple minutes.

Is it possible those are group texts's (multiple people on one text)? I noticed that a text that I had sent to two people, gave two beeps when a reply was sent from one of the recipients.

I started thread with the problem. I set the notifications to never remind and only ring once, that didn't fix the problem. But now just a week ago it's working just fine! I don't know what happened, but I am very happy haha

Notice this happening a couple of times earlier today, bit it's really not a huge deal. After restarting my phone it went away. Let's see if it returns.

Just got my 4s today and it does the same. It was perfectly normal at first but now when I get a message, the message tone stutters/repeats itself continuously for about seven times (I have it on 'beep' at the moment and have tried other tones) before finally vibrating twice and then stopping.

It only repeated itself continuously twice at the beginning but it's really starting to hack me off now :l

it's a fault that can't be remedied by settings. A restore seems the only way. Mine is fine now.

I set the phone vibration off on text and it's mostly stopped. Hopefully they'll fix it so I can put the vibrate back on.
