    A question for people. I have the iphone4 w/ att and I noticed that now when i receive texts from people that it alerts me more than once. Here is basicly what happens.

    1) Phone is sitting next to me with a blank screen ( power is on, just not being used )

    2) Text message come to me and phone makes its designated chime......i look at the text, but literally do not touch the phone.

    3) A minute later, the same message appears on the phone and makes the same dedicated chime.

    4) I have now been alerted twice for the same text. When i swipe the un-lock slide bar and go to the text screen from said texter.....there is only one text....but i have been alerted twice.

    Is this a new feature for the most recent Ios?

    Yes it came with 4.3.something I believe. Drove me nuts but I figured out that you can turn it off in settings.
