Default No sound for text messages

When I receive a text message the phone vibrates, but it doesn't make any noise.
I've checked the settings under Sounds, Volumes and in the messaging app itself (stock app) everything seems to be set correctly for it to have a notification sound.
Any thoughts on what I'm missing?

BTW, I installed Handcent, it made the proper sound, but I'd prefer to use the stock app if possible.

Thanks.

Uninstall Handcent and reboot the phone. That should help.

Rebooted several times, it didn't work before Handcent, that was just an experiment I did to see if ANY messaging app would make a sound (it did).

Open up the messaging app and go into it's settings. From there you should be able to control the notification and sounds.
