Hello all.


Under the Notifications settings, inside Messages.  There is a setting - Repeat Alert, where you can set your message alert to repeat more than once, at regular intervals.


I set it to 3 times, sometimes 5.


This morning a new sms came in, I "ignore" the phone and did not respond, do or touch the phone at any way.  I remember clearly, the sms alert tone only alerted the very first time, subsequently, NO repeat alert.


And I think I remember, this didn't just occur to my current iPhone iOS, I think the last iOS4, it was the same for my phone too, did not remember any repeated alerts.


Wonder if anyone else have this experience.  To me it's slightly "disturbing and annoying" the repeat doesn't work, but it's OK 'cause I still have the Badge notification, and if I am really "afraid" of missing the text message, I would just revert to the old Alert Notification, of popping up in the middle of the screen.


Thanks and cheers.
