    How come my phone rings once when I get the message and then again 10 minutes later if I don't open the message? How do I turn this off?

    You can't turn it off.

    I wish you could, as it is annoying.. especially if you are on vibrate, in class..

    One of the recent firmware updates (not sure which anymore) added the second notification for unopened text messages. Before that happened, people were complaining that one notice wasn't enough. Just goes to show you can't please everyone!

    I did read on here recently that you don't have to actually open the message to kill the reminder, just touch the home or power button when the message arrives.

    I could have sworn when i updated the Firmware (that added this) it asked me if I wanted to use it or not. I clicked yes. You'd think the option would be there somewhare though.

    I dont know why people are having problems with this in class...just turn off the phone, anyways the vibrate is terrible so it shouldn't be noticeable.

    Agreed, the option would be nice.

    I am reasonably sure that Apple would disagree. :)
