    I've had this issue for the past few days, when I receive a text message it makes the alert sound but the message doesn't appear on the lock screen, nor does it make the display come on. In order to see the message I have to unlock the iphone and then it appears in its blue bubble thing. Anyone else have this issue or a way to fix it other than to restore?

    iPhone 3G 2.1

    Are you sure you didn't miss the first notification?

    2.1 introduced a second and third notification of missed texts, but by sound only.

    Most likely you are just missing the first new message notification.
