    it all worked fine for the first week but now everytime I get a text, it won't make any kind of alert. It vibrates but no sound. Has anyone had this problem?

    This has happened to me as well ever since the 2.0 update. It happens on my1st gen phone as well as the 3g. I don't understand, but you leave people hanging for a while, since you never hear the text come through.

    I would love an answer or solution to this one

    Yup mine is doing that too and I have missed things I really wish i hadn't. I just restarted my phone to see if that helps. Now just need a text.

    Yes this happens to me as well...it didn't seem to effect my 1 gen iPhone but it sure does the 3G....rebooting it will fix the issue...until it happens again anyway...I sure hope it's something that apple will be fixing in the upcoming updates....

    yeah rebooting fixed. Just don't know for how long...

    I don't think this phones bugs are ever all going to be worked out... OR ever half of them.

    are you guys talking about a recurring beep or just the first once once you receive it?

    this is my first iphone and i only get a notification sound for the first call or sms i recieve. I did a search in the forums and thought this was normal? hopefully apple addresses this as my older phones have notification beeps everyone X minutes if i haven't checked the call / sms yet.
