    It happens, its when you access SIM applications.

    Black background, sorta fade in, and Green and Red buttons.

    that happens when you dont enter the sms application when you get a text and just look what it says on the home screen. the sound it makes is a reminder 5 minutes after it is sent. go to settings, messages, and then turn off reminder

    There was no text. Unless I hit close and the number one was on the Sms appcauze I didn't actually read it yet. Would it still remind u then or no? Is that what you mean

    Isn't there an option to have SMS sounds played twice when a text message comes in?

    No this actually happens. Its a bug not a feature. For example when i activate phones in my store the customers iphone rings like if they got a new text but all you see in the home screen is a red circle like if you have a missed call. But its not a missed called its just a red circle with no number inside of it. Idk its weird but its a bug.

    Also sometimes when you receive a text, you will see it on the screen. Once you slide to unlock you will hear the new text sound. I tried restoring completely and it doesnt fix it. Oh and its not only on my phone its on other phones as well.

    Ps: im talking about 3gs and 3g.

    I have heard the text sound thing when waking but never seen a badge icon without a number on it as of yet.

    Idk if I'm coming through clearly. My phone will make the SMS alert noise. I look and see no new text. I haven't checked to see if it's a text I hit close on and maybe the badge with number one is on my SMS app. Would closing a text and not viewing it cause it to repeat also? For some reason this very rarely happens. I think on 2.01 or whatever the firmeware was before 3.0. It would also happen but like I said very rarely. Maybe it's cause I hit close and don't view the texts but idk. I think I remember people saying this happened to them too. I have restored as new phone recently so it can't be that. It's probably from closing a text and the badge is there and it is probably alerting but not sure if that can happen.

    Yes, this happens on my phone a few times a week. Or at least on my 3G it did, not on the 3GS....yet.

    nah i would know if it was a voicemail. honestly it seems like all the alerts are messed up in some way or another.
