I have been having the text tone issue as many others have. That problem being that when a text is recieved the phone will only vibrate. The 2.1 update did not fix the issue...imagine that.

    Hi. You're the first person who has posted about the phone only vibrating when getting text messages. Can you tell me more of the problems you are experiencing when receiving texts? I ask because I exchanged my phone twice already because after a certain number of texts, the audio alert for text messages stops and only vibrates. I thought it was the phone so Apple exchanged it but I'm still experiencing the same problem with this third phone.

    I've had my iphone for about 3 weeks and already noticed the sms tone problem. tried changing it and it worked again for a little while. but back to square one now with irregular sms alerts. and i live in asia...we live on sms!!! driving me crazy. was hoping 2.1 would fix it, but seems from what you guys say it's not going to...

    Mine does that too!

    The tone starts to work after I reboot the phone... Otherwise It stops giving a tone when I get an SMS. After a while eventually I think it stops vibrating too.

    I don't have this problem and I never have had it. Everything works as described: set 'Vibrate' and it 'vibrates', set 'do not vibrate' and it doesn't..... 'Try the various combinations of settings that are available until you get what you want' is the only suggestion, because there are combinations which may produce results which are not 'quite' as required.....
