    dorkiken, your suggestion didn't work in my case. As per other threads, I switch off notification, and message and reboot to switch back on everything again, still there are two alerts for my messages. Then after followed your steps, no avail.

    Let's face it hard re boot or anything isn't going to fix it only an update will from apple which is taking the ****! No matter what you do it's just gonna end up coming back. Does any one have a rough idea when an update is due?

    The Apple Store (Bath) seems to think the problem doesn't even exist & no update is in the pipeline!

    Hi, I have not posted on this issue in months, but have been too lazy to cancel the alerts. Just an FYI, I did a complete restore of my phone -- not from a backup -- back in October or November and I have not had this issue since. It is important that you don't use a back up to restore. I know that this is a pain, but in my case at least, this problem went away for good.

    @LemonPro you must have done the reboot only.. it should be the "hard reboot" as what they say. Press the home button and the power switch all together until your mobile turns off, DO NOT turn it off manually. Thats the hard reboot.. and it worked on me. 2 weeks and I am still double-message-alert-tone free :-)

    Thanks kikay1030. I did hard reboot and even updated iOS 5.1 tonight and followed all the steps again. But still the problem exists. Just need to try factory reset to get rid of this problem. I shall speak to Genius Bar before I reset my phone.

    I can confirm that hard reset works. I'm not saying it is a permanent solution, it is obvious that there is a bug somewhere, but it works for now.

    iOS 5.1 update has fixed this so far. 2 days, looks alright so far. lets see how it goes.

    Can someone tell that whether Apple read these posts ? Or are we just talking to each other?

    Is anyone else experiencing having to constantly keep having to re-enter your iMessage password everytime your phone is turned off or after the battery has died?

    I was hear repeated alert message tone at one moment and also my phone plays message tone during chatting.

    The solution is very simple only Reset your iPhone using "Press and hold Power+Home button same time" after rebooting the problem will be solved.

    Hello everybody,


    Effectively, it seems to be a Software problem. A quick brief on what happened to me was that after the iOS update on last year (5.0.1), the problem started.


    After revision this forum, I made several resets and changes in configuration but nothing seemed to work. I went to Apple store at the beginning of March and my phone was replaced for a new one.


    However, some days after, the problem appeared again . I was checking again this forum and I found one comment very useful (thanks gAfaS.gR), who was related to a configuration I have not tried before. The change was in Settings – Notifications and all the applications that were in the notification centre had activated the feature “View in Lock Screen”. I just turn off this feature and the problem stopped with no reset. I made some tests, setting it on (double sound) and setting it off (problem stopped) .


    This last week, there was a new iOS update 5.1 with which this problem was solved (as said by Cynx). I set to on the “View in Lock Screen” to all the applications in the Notification centre and the problem was corrected .


    Thanks to the Apple development team, but it would be really useful that somebody from Apple’s development team posted something for us (the customers) to know what is going on and if our comments are being checked. I felt a bit of abandoned here. (A constructive criticism for customer service ).


    Thanks again!

    If you are still having this problem, I would suggest following this guide here. It seems to have fixed the problem for a lot of people, hope it can help you!

    After every suggestions failed to work out in this thread, I booked and appointment and went to Genius Bar yesterday. They put phone into DFU mode and restore to factory setting. Which means they wiped out everything from the memory and re-installed iOS. The problem was solved, until I came back home and restored my back-up.


    They guy says phone cannot be exchanged because it wasn't a major problem which interface anything else.

    So, I am still carrying this annoying problem, if anyones comes up with solution, s/he will be owes a big thanks from me.
