    It rings most of the time, but occasionally, ill get a message and it wont ring or vibrate. it will recognize it as a new message, it just doesnt alert me. Why? and is it Hardware or Software?

    I'm pretty sure it's software. I noticed if you use it like steadily for texting, and then you lock it and within a 10 second window you get another message it won't ring or vibrate til you unlock it to view or a few minutes later after the screen lights up for the alert.

    I had the exact same issue as you, went away with a 3.1.2 restore and set-up as a new iPhone.
