    ok so im on 3.0 on my iPhone 3G and since pretty much today, whenever im on the the iphone anywhere and i get a txt message it will pop up twice (as if i got the same message twice) but when i go to my SMS app to check my messages it shows me i only received it once.

    so yea my problem is that the SMS preview screen pops it twice in a row like
    *BLOOP* *BLOOP* instead of just *BLOOP* i hope that makes sense and someone can help me solve this, thanks

    I'm having the same problem. Mine started after I installed the "SMS Black" theme from Cydia.

    The text message previews showed up as "unknown" so I removed it and now I get the double sound because it seems like it has the regular preview from the person but then it has the preview "text from unknown" command popping up as well.

    I'm guessing a bug on the SMS Black theme, and a poor uninstall on my part (how b/c I removed using cydia?) but I guess it's also my fault for installing something that had no feedback or anything else.

    I'm on AT&T as well. I'm going to "re-jailbreak" my phone and see if that fixes it. I'll update after I do it, I'm on 3.0.1.

    Maybe it has something to do with a soft rollout of MMS? Haha, probably not, it's probably something we've all done.

    Ok so re-jailbreaking it didn't help, but it also didn't seem to change anything at all on my phone, haha.

    I dunno if I want to try and restore it to the original and then re-do it or not.

    For a little while I was just getting the "text from unknown" and now it's back to the double ping after doing the redsn0w again.

    What region is everyone in? I'm in the midwest. I also installed and uninstalled "SMS Black" on my phone, and I half attempted to do the keyboard mod but uninstalled iAcces too due to the sluggishness of the modded keyboard.

    Did this just happen randomly to anyone else? Or have you all installed apps as well?

    That's right, I also have the new facebook app and the new tfln app. will delete fb app and see what happens.

    Nope, removing the fb app didn't do anything. It has to be something else we downloaded from cydia.

    Hmm...I dunno then, haha. I did notice, when I had the vibrate on with the ring all I would get is "text from unknown."

    So it didn't do the double beep. I guess we'll just have to wait a bit and see.

    Yes I do have that app, and I updated it recently.

    I feel bad for bashing that dude's SMS skin, haha. I wish there was a way to delete the comments on those things.

    Did you remove it using cydelete or remove it using cydia > manage packages?

    Cydia>Manage Package

    Ok thank goodness. If you use Cydelete it will still do it, so everyone else reading this go to Cydia and use "Manage Packages" and uninstall from there.

    Is there a way to notify the developers?

    If you look it up in Cydia there should be a way to contact the developer if you go into the Details, you can click on Author and it should pull up an email to them. Im gonna send one now.

    The only thing that I can think of is when the update went through the setting were changed so that you can keep the msg private if you wanted. You'd think that would be a featute the user would activate on their own and not have it pre-activated causing hysteria and panic ( thats a little over doing it)
