    Before I updated to 2.1 on my first gen iPhone, I would get an SMS notification like this:

    Johnny Appleseed
    Text Message

    After updating to 2.1, I only get this now for a new SMS notification:

    New Text Message

    How do I change my SMS notification back to it saying the name of who it's from and text message?

    Also, how do I turn on the additional chimes for SMS notification? I have looked through the settings menu for both of these options but I cannot find either one.

    Please advise.

    Sounds like you have security passcode activated and turned off sms preview. Go into settings--->security passcoed--->sms preview and turn it on.

    Ah that's where it was, thank you.

    As far as the additional chimes, where would I go about finding that?

    Thanks again.
