    Is anyone else experiencing a stutter in the text tone on either their iPhone 4S or other devices on iOS 5?

    Here's a video of it happening.

    It's a software issue which comes up after 1-2 days of usage. Goes away if you reboot/restore/hard reset. But again returns after 1-2 days.

    Numerous topics exist regarding this.
    Hopefully software update should fix this.

    This is happening to my iPhone too, and I just have a 4, with the i0s5 upgrade. this stutter is driving me crazy, I changed tones, but doesn't effect it, and it only happens when the phone is locked, either manually or "sleeping".

    I started a thread on this a cople days ago. I think it's DOUBLE ALERT TONE. Anyway 2 days ago I was told by apple to do a reset and restore which I did. I should also say the first time this happened I turned the Phone off and then back on which fixed it for approx 2 days and the it came back. I will let you know if the restore did fix it as tomorrow will be when it should begin to occur if it is still an issue.

    Haven't had that happen yet on my 4S, but it would happen, albeit rarely, on my 3GS with iOS 4.

    Relative to the scale of the iOS 5 project, bugs like this are bound to surface. I'm sure Apple will have it resolved by the next rev.

    Happens to my phone when it isn't locked as well. The vibration sometimes stutters too. It's doing my head in..

    How can something like this not get noticed during testing? It's a consistent bug and it happens each time you get a text message!

    Yes, rebooting has seemed to fix the problem temporarily for me. I have an iPhone 4 w/ iOS 5

    Stutter fix

    Go in to sound settings and make sure vibration is turned off. This turns off the vibe& ring option. Your phone will still vibrate when in silent mode. This worked for me.

    My iPhone 4S has been doing this for about a week now, I have learned to live with it but still bugs me. I always have people asking me what's wrong with my phone. Any type of easy fix discovered yet or do I still have to restore?

    Software update fixed it for me. I've not had it since I posted in this thread.

    Though, I use a different text tone (calypso) now.
