    Default Using iPod on your iPhone and text messaging?

    Does anyone know why sometimes when you listen to your iPod on your phone and a text message comes in through your head phones why sometimes the music fades out (quiets down) so you can hear the text message alert and other times the music just plays louder than the text message alert and you can't hear the message or the alert (like the song doesn't quiet for the alert to play)

    i just cant seem to understand why the music in your ipod/pandora sometimes fades out so you can hear the text message alert and other times it does not. if it doesnt its like you almost cant hear the text message noise come in.

    I believe mine always fades for SMS alerts--any chance that some of what you think are SMS alerts are other tones such as new email, etc.?

    I don't why it wouldn't be consistent with the fades and volume control when your iPod is playing and you receive and text message

    Replying to your own post six times probably isn't going to get you an answer any faster.

    Simple. When youre listening to the iPod, put the phone on vibrate via the switch. It'll still vibrate for texts and whatnot but not interrupt your music.

    Well I like hearing the alert text message noise when a song is playing so why does it sometimes fade and other times not really? Is it my phone or just the way the phone works?

    I called apple and they said that it was a software glitch. Does that sound accurate? Could that even be possible? Anyone experience Glitches with their iPhones?
