Text alert twice after removing lock screen notifications
I removed lock screen notifications to keep them from being viewed without a password. Now when I unlock my phone, I get an alert for the second time. The first time being when the phone is locked, the second time being when I unlock the phone. Is there any way to prevent this?

this is THE million dollar question. i have yet to see a fix or workaround for this, jailbreak or not. very frustrating. i guess in a way i understand the reasoning behind this--if 'View in Lock Screen' is turned to OFF then notification, or notifications, will be visible once the device is opened/unlocked. it'd be nice if Apple gave a their users a little more control over this
unless i am missing something, this is just the way it is. plain & simple

I tried checking out your dilemma, have you tried turning off your alert style to None, and on the View on lock screen, set that to off. You will get notified via whatever sound you have, plus if you have your badges on you will be reminded with the texts getting sent to you.
*Tested out on 5.1b3*

Settings>Notifications>(desired app)>Alert Style>(None, Banners or Alerts)
which i would assume you would still want Banner style notifications while in app or homescreen. this method would not allow that
if you're jailbroken you may want to look into Popup Blocker. it will allow you to block notifications on the lockscreen without the alert once you Slide to Unlock the device. you can even set it up to "Wake" the device even without the notification showing, or you can choose to not

I have only missed phone calls and text messages to show on the lock screen, but email and calendar events are set to show in the notification panel. I have badges enabled so I know there are waiting messages in email, text/iMessages and/or missed phone calls.
