Customise your iPhone SMS settings so the feature works best for you. The iPhone comes loaded with sounds and alert options. Set different notification sounds to distinguish between a missed phone call, a SMS message or a new message in your e-mail inbox. You can also completely disable text message notifications from appearing on your screen. This way you can manually check your new SMS messages on your own time.
