    Is this a bug or is this supposed to happen?

    I see that I have a new text, for example, on my lock screen. I unlock to go do something else. I will sometimes get the notification banner for the same text and it will ring/vibrate again. Pretty sure only happens with messaging notifications.

    Didn't happen on iOS6 or on my 4S. I am on a 5S. And no I don't have repeat alerts on.

    In settings -> notification center -> Messages scroll down and change Repeat Alerts Off

    Do you have it set to alerts or Banners as this could be the difference? I have never experienced that issue.

    Are you using another messaging app other than apples? If so try that apps settings

    No just stock apple everything. It happens sometimes with emails too, I'll see the email on the lock screen and then when I unlock it will show on the drop down banner.

    Weird right?

    I'm seeing exactly the same thing. For instance I just got an AP News notification. I then unlocked my phone and got the same Notification again WITH the alert sound. Seems like a bug to me. Doesn't happen to all notifications, just random ones.

    I have the same exact issue with stock message app! Pretty annoying if you ask me. I guess it is a bug or something.

    Try turning "alert style" to "none". Leave "show in notification center" and "lock screen" in "on" setting.

    I have the same issue and I'm not sure whether this is a bug or a feature lol. :confused:

    I just got a text message a few mins before typing this. It shows up on notifications and plays a sound/vibrates as normal. As soon as I unlock the phone, I'd get the same notification again at the top banner with the vibration and sound. This is NOT the repeat alerts feature that iOS has had since a few OS versions as the alert/notification shows up when when you unlock the phone and not after the defined period for unread repeat alerts as you normally get.

    The same occurs for other notifications such as Twitter and the BBC News app.

    Though this probably would solve the issue, I still want to receive a banner notification if I am using my iPhone at the time that I receive a message. Your suggestion would not allow that.

    Pretty sure it's a bug. It's pretty annoying.

    Chiming in with a 'me too'. Haven't noticed it with Messages, but e-mail with an exchange account does this to me all the time. I've learned to deal with it.

    Hope they fix this down the road..

    Doesn't happen to me on my iPad with the same setup.

    Should I try restoring from backup?

    My iPod 5 gen does this too! I've taken many screenshots. Started with Instagram about a year ago, now it only happens with poorly made games, ones I've downloaded for my kids to play. I'll turn the app notifications off, and a new app will start the process. Glad to know I'm not the only one. Any update on this?

    ----------

    Also mine don't repeat the same notification, when I get a new notification it brings with it a old one from weeks ago.

    What version of iOS do you have?

    And you are certain that you don't have repeat alerts enabled for messages?
