Duplicate iPhone SMS Alerts

An incredibly annoying feature of iPhone 2.1:

Repeat alert up to two additional times for incoming text messages

Great. So instead of vibrate meaning “You have a new text message,” it now means “You have a new text message oh wait maybe not it might be an old one.”

When I got a text message, it displays it on the home screen with no need to unlock the phone. This is great, because I can simply read the message, and put the phone back in my pocket. But now, 5 minutes later i get another buzz for the same message I just read

I hate having to unlock -> relock the phone just so it doesn’t give me a reminder for the message I just read. Why am I being punished for reading my text messages without unlocking my phone?

I sincerely wish that my iPhone buzzing meant “hey adam, something new just happened on the phone you should take a look at” instead of “hey adam, something new just happened  or maybe not it might be something I already told you about why don’t you take a look and re-read the message you just read 5 minutes ago.”


It’s not even an optional setting.

  1. Yeah this is driving me nuts. It has been happening for couple weeks now. Why hasn’t Apple fixed something this obvious and annoying? Their disdain for customers who have been loyal to their products are increasingly obvious.
