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.
People on the F10 forum indicated they got a ding (bmw tone) through the speakers. I only get the envelope. My Mercedes gives me a sound and envelope, very reliably.
