    With my iPhone 3GS I could hear text alerts through the headphones when the phone was switched to silent mode. With my iPhone 4 I can not hear the alert in silent mode. I hear when the phone rings but no text alert. If I switch out of silent mode I do hear all alert sounds through the speaker and headphones but this is not what I want. Is there a way to hear all sounds just through the headphones?

    could that happen? check your iPhone or speaker settings.

    I'm annoyed by this too. There's no reason for the msg to be silent with headphones when ringing works.

    Is there a Cydia workaround for this? I'm tired of missing important messages just because I'm not glued to the iPhone screen all day. I've got my headphones on; why doesn't it play an alert when a next text comes in (like it does for calls)???
