    Im having some problems with my iphone 4 with ios 5.1.1. Sometimes when i receive a text it just won't let me know by ringing/vibrating or leaving any kind of notification on the screen, the text will just be added to the conversation window and sometimes i only notice it when i go back to that conversation window.
    Im using the stock text app and this happens a bit randomly, so sometimes it works fine and all of the sudden there will be one text that won't be notified.

    Other problem i have and it also involves the text stock app is on the phonebook when i try to send a contact info/number using the "share contact"-"by text" option, the app will switch to the messages app but it will crash and so i can't automatically send the number.

    Does anyone know any solution for these problems?

    For your problem with the notifications, are you texting a lot when you see this occur? You could be pressing the power/hold button right as you are receiving the message. ive had that happen to me a few times.

    and for the contact sharing, i would do a soft reset by holding down the power/hold button and the home button until the phone resets. if that doesnt help then you should go ahead and restore your phone.
    hope this helps

    Thanks for the reply and help.
    The text notification problem does happen when im texting a lot, so it might be that and i will pay more attention to see if thats the case.

    The contact sharing problem, i did the soft reset but unfortunately the problem continues :/
