Text message alerts working for me...
One of my biggest gripes was the sound setting bugs..
Did the update this morning, haven't missed a text yet, the alerts are going off every time, and it is doing the extra alerts for me. I let one sit, about 5 minutes later, it beeped again, and then it did it 1 more time a little later than that. (might have been 5-10 minutes, not really sure) So the issue is good to go for me.
My other big gripe was the ringer volume being reset to lower levels on it's own.
After the update..... the volume for the ipod features is now independent of itself. And the ringtone volume is staying put where I left it. No more problems with that now either.
Contacts are able to scroll after about 1 second, before it was over 5 seconds before they would move.
Not sure if it my imagination, but it almost seems like the text alerts are louder now also.
I'm very pleased with the update, everything seems to be going great!
