    I just downloaded the update in the hopes that it would fix this issue...It didn't. After the install/reboot I had my normal sound when I got an incoming text message, but just like before, after a little while the sound stopped playing, and all it does now is vibrate when I get a text...This is annoying.....Still....

    Agreed. No problems here with 2.0 or 2.0.1.

    I get this problem too with my phone. I've dome the upgrade and it works periodically. I doubt it's the phone hardware. When I restart the phone it works fine.

    No problems on this end, but then again I've not experienced the problems described. Not to discount what everyone is saying, but there's 2.1 firmware floating out there in the hands of ADC folks, and that's about all I can say... Sorry to hear about "no-fix" update. :(

    Since the update tonight, I had a call go directly to voicemail. The first time this has ever happened in over a year. This was on my 3G phone. Maybe it was because the signal is weaker with 2.01, I'm not sure yet.

    SMS sounds have been working.

    I sort of have this problem, mainly when I reply to a friend, but leave the SMS app open on the conversation, it doesn't make a sound when they reply but vibrates. But when I reply back and then quit the SMS app the sound is back.

    ^ that is normal because i believe it wouldn't make a sound if ur still in the sms message only if the phone is on the main screen or something

    i can't believe this bug wasn't fixed like do they not read the complaints.

    they fixed lag wow! there is more to fix. can i report a problem to apple or no?

    Anyone know the steps to reproduce this?

    The only time mine just vibrates is when I have it on silent mode. Otherwise it is always the chime noise.

    ^ What he said. It is very random, and a reboot generally solves the problem temporally.
