    I have a first generation Iphone, it was working fine excpet its text messaage sound is missing.
    Whenever any text message delivered to iphone , no sms sound is heard. Even when the phone is not in silent mode. I have tried to reste the phone setting as well as resetting netwrok setting too.
    But no success.

    Please help in getting this problem resolved.

    I feel your pain. I have the same problem with the initial ringtone that it SHOULD make when receiving the first message. Afterwards, though, I hear that "IM like" sound it makes when in conversation mode.

    I have a possible fix.

    Warning: This fix will erase all settings on your iPhone! Your visual voicemail will need to be re-setup by AT&T! Use at your own risk!

    I called 1-800-my-iPhone and I got a person who told me to reset all settings on my phone. So, I went to Settings > General > Reset > Reset all settings. The phone powered down and started to reset my settings. Seeing as this is my first iPhone, I grew worried when the phone took over a minute to reboot. It sat on the silver apple forever. The phone came back on, and everything seemed okay. I had to reset my Wifi settings, and my ringtones.

    Well, I missed a call a few hours later and went to check my voice mail and it started to dial! So, I gave a call back to the apple support line. I forgot to mention my first contact said she would call me back, and never did. I don't remember her name as it was a long middle eastern one. On my second call I got in contact with a man named Shawn. He was very helpful, and he called AT&T to help me get it resolved. Regardless, I was on hold for a good amount of time. And I had to hold up a family member's phone because my phone had to be powered off. Probably the longest time I was on the phone with AT&T trying get an issue resolved. All in all I was pretty displeased. I do not blame shawn or the girl from AT&T. It was the person I talked to first who had me unsatisfied.

    This seemed to have fixed my issue. I'm not sure if it is short term or long term. If the problem occurs again I will follow up for you.

    Good Luck,
    Tim Heckman
