    Here's the premise:

    iPhone idling, screen off, locked. All of a sudden a new text comes in. Only one.
    The sound msg goes off; cuts halfway and then repeats with a new one.


    There is no unread messages. Reminder is disabled. WHAT THE HELL?! :( How is this fixed?!

    What version if iPhone do you have?
    What version of iOS is installed on the iPhone?
    Was the installation of iOS an upgrade or clean install?
    Have you rebooted the iPhone?
    Have your tried changing the message to see if the problem persists?

    Have you tried to do a restore and clean install of the phone?

    Since the iPhone 4 is new it technically has a clean install. Given that I would still try restore/clean install as you mentioned.

    Mine does it too, but it's a legitimate alert. I've only noticed it with push notifications though, not messages or emails.

    Clean install? But it came as a clean install, it's brand new. An iphone 4 from sprint.

    Damn. Guess I need to do a complete backup.

    If you do a complete backup and then restore and use the backup again youll get the same problem. You need to set up iphone as NEW

    ohhh I am not going to look and see where I found it but it was a setting that had to be changed, they bog me down trying to remember if it was sounds or restrictions, something there is a setting that should fix that. No help i know unless you look at all of the settings.

    If you are referring to IOS 5, please check the following:

    1. Go to Settings--->Notifications--->Messages
    2. Scroll down to "Repeat Alert" on the bottom
    3. Change to "Never"

    You now have choices of (1, 2, 3, 5, 10x times)!

    Let me know if this helps!

    Hmmm...but I want it to repeat....just not right away. I want it to repeat if I fail to check the message.

    Hmmm, i see!

    For now, the best way is to check your notifications in IOS 5. They just have the times intervals up to 10x.

    Same issue, happens once in a while. first alert starts and gets garbled then immediately repeats. Also on sprint.

    Mine seems to be affected by imessage phones texting me. Like imessage and SMS getting the same message same time therefor doubling up on alerts.

    I only get it double from my wife and dad. Who both have new iphones with imessage...thoughts?

    I set my 4S up as a new phone and that seems to have sorted it. I still have it notify me twice for an alert

    Since I get it on SMS messages, this is definately not the issue I'm experiencing.

    Restarted phone, problem went away
    now out of no where it came back
    annoying as hell.
    :( sigh glitches
    and with new update coming out... it'd suck because it may fix it but push back the jailbreak. >_<
