    Whenever I get an alert (a new text message or email) the alert tone seems to stutter. It's almost like it is duplicating itself at first.

    For texts I am using Tri-tone and this is where I notice it the most.

    Any advice?

    I had the same problem, I tried hard resetting the phone twice and that didn't work. So I then truer turning off iMessages off and back on which did work. But that made iMessages cease to function for a while. It would show my caller ID as my email rather than phone.

    So it seems to be limited to just the Message tone and it does not matter which one it is.

    I have turned of the notification center but that didn't help.

    Stutter fix

    Go in to settings, the. Sounds. Look at the option that says vibrate, make sure it is off. That should fix the problem. It worked for me!

    That just takes off vibrate and ring?

    Mine does the same thing ... it seems to happen only when it is locked.

    This thread is about the same problem and includes a video of the behavior / sound:

    There they suggest turning the phone on and off will make it stop for a couple days but that the behavior returns after that.

    I'll be going to the Apple Store to see if they can fix it or at least to identify the issue and hope that it will be addressed in a future update.
