Default SMS & PIN Alerts Sometimes Sound, Sometimes Don't; 9650

Please Login to Remove!

Just got the 9650 from Verizon.

Basic Issue: My sound alerts for incoming messages sometimes work and other times they don't.

I first set the Normal sound profile to my desired settings but the sounds I'd chosen weren't going off for PIN messages, SMS messages, or emails. Instead, I was getting random sounds that I hadn't chosen. When I look at the Normal profile settings my chosen settings are listed but different sounds are happening.

So I created a custom setting with the sounds/volume/settings I want. This solved my first problem but now the sounds and vibrations only happen once in a while. Often, I am not alerted to an incoming SMS, PIN, or email message. It seems to be random; I can't spot a pattern. I want to get a sound and vibration for every single incoming message (except email, for which I want sound but no vibration); how can I fix this?

These are the current profile settings for my custom profile, under the Messages section:

Email:

Volume: 9

Play Sound: (Normal) Always

Yes, I believe there's a bug in this OS but...try removing all the punctuation from contacts phone numbers. This has solved a lot of that randomness on the 9630 and recently the 9650. It was mostly occurring with just SMS though.
