When I am in my text app and I get a text from someone else it used to just show the number under the message icon upper right corner. Now it also shows the alert with the notification banner top of the screen. This just started. Any ideas?

Can you show a picture of what you just described?

Did you just upgraded your iOS? Notifications are part if the iOS since ver 5 you can change this goto settings/notifications and turn it off or other ways to your likings.

Ok I'll explain it again.

iPhone 5 iOS 6.0.1

If you were in this text screen

And got a message it would just add a one to the upper left hand corner "message" arrow.
Now it does that and I get a banner (how my notifications is and always been set up for texts) at the top of the screen also.

It would add a one or two or whatever if you are looking at a message and then got one from someone else. This still there and the same is all versions of iOS that I have seen. If this is not the case I would do a hard reset and maybe a restore.

This is how it is supposed to work. So just to clarify, you want to disable banners from appearing while you're in the text messaging app? I don't think you can do that without disabling banners altogether.

Maybe a glitch do a hard reset and see if it fixes it. I will occasionally loose my keyboard shortcuts until I reset.

I agree that's is a feature I was suggesting that maybe he had a glitch before and a restore might put it back the way it was before since it bother him do much.

I've noticed if I'm in a thread for one person and someone else texts me the banner comes up. I can't remember when the number changes for the messages tag. I'll check now and see if I notice a diff.

Just to clarify since there is a lot of confusion in this thread, you should see a number and a banner. What the OP is seeing is normal and the phone doesn't need to be restored. The question has already been answered and no one needs to check to see if it's normal or not. :)
