Since IOS 5.01 on iPhone 4S my message alert tone goes off for no reason even when there are now notifications or messages waiting.

 

Prior to 5.01 I was happily using 5 without a care in the world but now this bug has turned up which causes the phone to play the message alert tone, it doesn't take the screen out of sleep mode, there are now messages new or unread, no other notifications of any kind but it just makes the sound.

 

It seems to play the alert every 5 minutes for an hour then stops for a couple of hours, only to start up again if you start mesaging anybody.

 

I cannot for the life of me work out how to sort it and I'm currently assuming it's a bug or hardware fault, seems to shame to take back a 3 week old $1000 phone for such a small issue but it's driving me crazy how it is.


iPhone 4S, iOS 5.0.1
