    I've never had that happen. If it happens often I'd probably do a restore to scratch. May be a software glitch you have going on.

    So I just turned my phone off and on and it fixed the problem. Text sound is back to normal. I dunno why it does it though. Is it the software?

    I know what you mean. The first sound is a tenth of a second then the second one is the full sound.

    The device is going into sleep mode when it comes in - have had this happen more than once - just a OS glitch I'm sure

    I think its a subliminal message reminding you to give your phone a quick reboot... Which is good to do once in a while along with draining your battery from time to time

    I have the same problem. It's driving me crazy. I turned my phone off and it worked for a little bit, then not too long after the double notification sounds started again...

    If restoring hasn't solved the issue - go to apple

    Mine just eventually went away. It'll come back here and there. But it goes away.

    You would also get a double alert if you have one email account being forwarded to a second email account.

    The same thing happens to mine. The first sound is really brief, immediately followed by the normal sound. I've only noticed it on text messages. I have the sound set to the default for iMessage, "Tri-Tone".
