    Sorry, misunderstood. Sounds like a software glitch... have you tried another tone to see if it still does it?

    No I haven't. It's the first time I have experienced this. It's just makes the text tone noise twice back to back right after one another. It's always making the text tone sound when I actually have the message open. I should only be hearing the swoosh sound when a text comes in and the message is open. Do you think this is hardware or software? What should I do?

    I think it is software. Do you have any other messaging apps on your iPhone (just a crazy though)? If not, I guess I would do a backup and then restore to it to see if it gets fixed...

    Turn your phone off and restart. Same thing happened with wife's iphone4 and this fixed it.

    Did you actually get a double message. This happened to me a few times last week. I got the same message as an iMessage AND as a SMS.

    I had this EXACT same problem happen to me yesterday for the first time. I can ALMOST guarantee that it's not a hardware problem. All of my tones for emails, phone calls, reminders, calendar and other notifications sound find.

    I'd guess it's just a software glitch. Personally, I love iOS 5 but it seems kind of buggy. I'm going to try the power cycle and report back with an update in a few days.

    So I rebooted my phone and I still have the problem. It's almost like the text sounds is glitchy and double rings but it's not just the sound twice. My phone goes glitchy for a second then it's fine. This problem also doesn't happen constantly (just the past couple of days). I'm wondering if maybe I should restore because something funky is going on.

    Before doing the power cycle (both buttons not just power slider) did you force quit all the apps?

    This happens to me to but it only seems to happen when I switch to sound+vibrate. Usually it's just on sound. It goes back to normal a couple of hours after I turn vibrate off.

    ya know Infiniti, i just got my 4S on Friday, and mine has done this a few times as well, but it doesnt do it with every text msg. lol. i fig'd it was a glitch happening just when it did it too.

    Turn your phone off and restart. Same thing happened with wife's iphone4 and this fixed it.
    I'll try this next time it does it. So far today it hasnt happened at all, but yesterday(saturday) it did it 3 or 4 times out of all the text msg i rec'd. it was def weird !! lol.

    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.
