    Called me weird but I got rid of alerts, banners AND lock screen notifications. I just unlock and pull down the center to check on things. Instead of my phone coming on every time I get something. Saves some battery I would think. When I am reading something, it helps me stay focused till I'm done rather than responding to a message when I'm thinking about something else. Just me though.

    Banners are nice.

    But, isn't it weird how emails and Twitter message show massive, in the middle of the screen when the first message comes in on a locked iPhone screen?

    I know I can press the lock button twice, and they start to stack, but...

    I prefer the banners as well. I find the alerts less annoying with a banner style notification.

    so tell me something. what do you call the style when your phone is locked and the message pops up on the screen right in the middle? is that still banners or alerts? i know when my phone is unlocked they pop up on the top which is banners right? but when my phone is locked they pop up right in the middle of the screen still what is that style?

    My god, banners all the way. Alerts force you to deal with them on their schedule instead of your own.
    Agreed, for sure. Although I still have alerts set for things that I want to have my attention. i.e. calendar alerts/reminders

    That's kinda neither. Lock screen notifications are special because every one of those will display in the manner you described, although I think they are most closely related with alerts. That said, you still don't have to deal with them right away like normal alerts...you can just hit the sleep/wake button or let them time out, and they'll still be waiting for you in the lock screen and Notification Center.

    Its like a banner in the middle of the screen when the phone is lock and when its unlock and you are doing something it will appear as a banner at the top of the screen if you have set the settings to banner in notification center settings!

    Banners. No question. When watching a video it doesn't pause on me now.

    For those of you who say you don't like banners on top: if you swipe it to the left it goes away instead of waiting for its designated time to go away.
