iMessage Issues iPhone 5

Whenever I get a iMessage, I immediately get notified.

Then the badge disappears, and the message shows as read.

Sometimes I catch it sometimes I don't, so if it is on vibrate I could very easily miss it.

Unless I go into Messages. I find myself just checking Messages to make sure I have not missed something.

Is there a fix for this?

In actuality under settings-notifications-messages make sure notification center is ON I use SHOW 10 RECENT ITEMS and under alert style set to ALERTS.

the alert setting requires you to take an action. A banner notification is almost instant and goes away. You can just swipe down on the screen to see messages etc. But on vibrate I am not sure these setting will help.

Good Luck
