    Question for you guys. Are you using iMessage and did you actually get double texts? The one time this has happened to me it was when I got the same message twice. Once as an iMessage and a duplicate as SMS.
    no sorry rstark, no doubles for me

    Just had this issue for the first time. Remembered seeing this thread earlier this month, searched for it.

    Rebooted my phone, all is well...for now.

    iErick: I was able to figure out my problem was being caused by iMessage. It happened the other day again. I realized the friend who text me had an iPhone and was using iMessage. Looking back, that was the only time my phone did it. Was the person who text you using iMessage too?

    This isn't related to iMessage this happened before iMessage existed.. its just a bug in the software that hasn't been fixed I believe.

    I have noticed this issue comes and goes on my 4s. Rebooting it the couple times that I have tried didn't always fix the issue. It isn't an issue of getting two messages, one on iMessage and one regular, because I only have 1 contact that has iMessage capabilities. I have noticed that I will get double sound notification on incoming text messages when message app is not in focus. If message app is open to the person sending the messages, I get a notification even though I shouldn't. Seems like a threading issue, somehow getting two observers on the message notifications. I have tried closing the message program, but problem persists. I hope apple addresses this in 5.1. Any suggestions?

    Solved ...

    Download 5.0.1 (9A406) for iphone 4s

    And 5.0.1(9A405) for iphone4 from the Internet .

    Put ur phone on DFU mode.



    then go to iTunes



    press SHIFT+ restore button and chose the iPhone4,1_5.0.1_9A406_Restore

    That's it

    It's working fine with me now and the battery life problem solved too.

    Solved ...

    How many threads have you gone on and posted this "solved", its not. That is the firmware I'm already updated to, yet the problem still exists. Here I was all happy on 4.2.8 JB'd and now I completely regret upgrading due the the issues. This dumb double ring happins with iMessege on/off, Repeat on/off, Vibrate on/off.

    Even with a complete power cycle of phone, its fine for a while then the issues come back after a few hours.

    Seriously, stop going around forums posting false info.

    I have noticed something simular on my 4s, but there is a several minute gap between the first and second alert and it only happens when I have not read a text message yet. YES I have sent the "Repeat Alert" to NEVER. Yes I have the newest firmware. (5.0.1 9A405) And this is my first iPhone ever, so it was set up as brand new.

    Is this same issue? If not is there a fix for my version of the problem? Thanks!

    I agree with an earlier post. I turned my iPhone 4S off and back on and have not had the problem since.

    It happens for me when the phone is going to sleep and it comes in... Get the double/echo once in a while not very often... Bet it's just an iOS 5 glitch

    Do you have emails linked to your iMessage account in addition to your phone number and is your Caller ID setup as your phone number?

    That's might be the cause: getting iMessages on both your phone number and your email's iMessage.

    When we upgraded to iPhone 4S, all of our iMessages switched to emails. We had to relink every iPhone to their original phone number and Caller ID.

    You will find the setup under Setting->Messages->Receive At

    Mine does this too, but I don't have double alert on. Whenever I power off and on, it stops. Doesn't happen again for another few weeks.

    Latest twist: I had to Restore as New my iPhone 4S last week.
    Now I'm getting double notifications of emails on my iPhone.
    So I guess the it's infectious.
    It's not my gmail because I have another email account and the same thing is happening.
    I also deleted my gmail account and reinstalled it. No success.

    It know it's a known issue for some and not all but i was hoping the iOS6 would have addressed it.

    Good Luck

    Reboot your device. That might eliminate the double alert for you.

    Any other suggestions?

    No, I don't. Sorry. I've been altering settings on my iPhone 4S trying to duplicate the problem and sending test messages from my iPad to the iPhone but I can't.

    Mine does this, and sometimes like...a broken tritone. Itll stop halfway through and then a second later the rest happens.
