If i turn the phone off and many people send me SMS messages. I receive a separate notification for each SMS message. 

This can be annoying if you have the phone off for a day or two.  It would be nice if there was a way to aggregate them so checking the notification once would clear it for the rest, and assume you had cleared the notifications.

Example if you received 15 - 20 messages, they aren't even collated by person, so you end up with a ton of clearing to do. 

Would be nice if notifications expired after some period of time as well.

We won't be able to change this in time for v1, this is to-spec and would require architectural changes.

There is a clear all button that is there now, which does solve this specific issue. 

The results should still be collated by phone number. Unsure if that is a requirement or not.  My initial concern has been dealt with by the "Clear All" button.

I think we'll be able to do this in 1.2.

So there are 2 ways to do this basically:

* either the lockscreen merge all notifications from one app into one
* either the app merge its notifications into one

I'd do both actually:

* in lockscreen, it's good to have only one notification per app
* in the system app's notification panel, we still want to see separate notification, however we can try to merge the notifications that are related, eg reciving several sms from one person. To do this, we need the "replace notification" user story.

Asking for guidance from UX.

Flagging Rob since this is about notifications, though Ayman (SMS/MMS/Comms) and Systems Front-end (Francis) may need to weigh in here as well.

It is now. You'll likely still get 1 notification per message, yet we keep only 1 notification per phone numbers.

We can do better regarding notifications but let's file new bugs taking into account the current implementation.
