    On my new iPhone 3G (Firmware 5A347), if you change the alert sound to "Chime' instead of the default, it makes no sound at all when a text comes in. If you change it back to "Tritone (Default)", the sound is fine.

    What is up with that? Anyone else having this problem? Can anyone else confirm?

    this seems to be a problem with everyones phone.

    i wonder if its only 3g iphones or the old iphones who also upgraded to new firmware.

    I've noticed, that after a while the sound just doesn't play anymore when I get a text.

    Also, after a while, the "Lock" sound goes away when you "slide to unlock"..
    And if you turn of the iPhone, then turn it back on it works again. It makes me mad!

    pce :apple:

    was just going to make a thread about this, having same problem as well... turning phone off and on seems to fix it for a while... When the problem happens to me phone only vibes and doesn't play sound, I have it set to do both.

    I've had this same issue on and off. Sometimes if I restart my iPhone it will work again and play the correct sound. It seems to just come and go as it wishes. Hopefully there will be a fix for this soon.
