    I noticed when viewing photos in the Photos app, as an iMessage/text comes in, that I don't get a banner style alert. Also while viewing a chat in iMessage, as other messages come in it also fails to show a banner alert, and I would have to navigate back to my messages list to read my latest message.

    Would like to know if this is normal. Thanks!

    This has always been the case since iOS 1.0, you will not get a Notification (only Sound) if you are already in the Message.app.

    As to your other question, I don't know because I've never received a message while viewing photos.

    Just a simple nitpick, thanks for that information. Wish it would appear either way.
