I only check the "telephone" box. If you have BT audio checked, then you don't hear any iPhone noises at all if you aren't listening to BT audio (i.e. iPod, audio off, etc.).

To answer your above question, the envelope just shows up when you're listening to an iPod or something other than BT audio streaming. You'll hear your text/phone/e-mail noises through the sound system if you are listening to BT audio.

Since I listen to the iPod through the USB port, I only see the envelope appear, but I often feel it vibrate to cause me to look and see if I have a new message.
