    OK... So like others I "randomly" noticed that I was not getting text message alerts. So, I started testing all kinds of use cases and finally came across a precise repeatable way that I'm guaranteed to NOT get an alert. However, I think its a new Froyo feature vs an actual bug (and I don't like it)...

    If you are viewing a message thread from "Person A" and "Person B" messages you, an alert will sound.

    However, If you are viewing a message thread from "Person A" and "Person A" messages you, an alert will NOT sound.

    I imagine this is setup so that your phone is not alerting when you are actively texting a person. However, I will typically leave a message thread open while the phone is awake and set it aside and will then all the sudden notice there are new messages w/o being alerted. If the phone goes to sleep, you WILL be alerted.

    Any Thoughts? I'd like to be alerted no matter what. I reviewed the message settings and did not see anything obvious..
