got the same issue myself; even changing the tones don't do anything and i created a custom profile.
i think it has to do with the storm software itself, since neither IM programs (msn/yahoo/bbm) work properly when it comes to alerts.
the only thing that works right is the flashing red light.
im curious about whether or not the other models have this issue too.

i have the same problem. i have had a blackberry 8520 curve for a week now, and mine does exactly the same! i have tried all sorts of tones and the SMS alert just refuses to work. BBM alert works fine and so does voice calling, but SMS does not sound/vibrate, or even flash up with the red light.
i know it's only been a week but it's frustrating me having to keep checking my phone for SMS messages! if anyone finds a solution to this problem PLEASE inform me!
