Call me stupid... But I just got my new iPhone 4s, and when I get texts while its locked, I get a notification. But when I unlock it, and put in my password it notifies me again of the same text message.

this is annoying. can i turn it off somehow?

Stupid. Lol I kid I kid.
How are you being alerted when locked? How does it alert you when unlock?
Is this only happening for texts or for other things also like emails?

I have the ding text tone, so it dings when I get a text, then I unlock my phone, and it dings again and shows the text up in the notification bar.

My 4s does the same thing. I receive an alert, but don't check it. Alert reminders are set to "Never" so I don't receive a second or third alert reminder. But, when I unlock the phone, it immediately alerts me that I have a message with a text alert. Highly annoying when you figure into the equation that I just unlocked my phone and checking my notification center, which renders alerting me when unlocking my phone useless.

How do I fix this and why do only a few people have this issue?

Okay try this. Under settings, notifications, messages, select Repeat Alert and you have 6 options. The last one (10 times) is obviously for the absent minded! Best of luck
