    all my other notification and media sounds are working. its just for text message that isn't. and its the only important sound that i actually need to work. my notification bar is on. i even went into setting on messaging and reset it to default. and it didn't work either.

    it would be really great if somebody is able to help me with this problem. i dont want to reset/reboot my phone if possible. thanks

    okay so you checked all your sound setting.
    Setting> Sound> Silent mode: off, Volume> Notifications: Turned up

    if thats all correct try changing the notification sound under Setting> Sound> Rigntone and Notifactions.

    also are u using a third party sms app? go sms, handcent, chopsms..
    if so try looking into those sound settings. if the settings are correct then try uninstall and re installing the app.

    if all that dont work you might have to restore your phone to factory.

    it could be a zedge problem.. try removing zedge and rebooting your device.

    actually just figured it out, go to message>menu>settings> storage settings> make sure 'delete old messages' box is UNCHECKED .... some kind of glitch

    Hello, google it, and read about, tried everyting plausible that I found. In my case the problem persistit even after unchecking "delete old messages":mad:.

    On an Android 2.3.6, anyone else has the same problem or knows another solution to this apparent "bug"?

    Notice that the sound of call works and sound in the selection of notifications doesn't play when selection changes.

    I finally got mine working again. Had to go to System Settings>Sound>Volume and change the slider for notifications. No idea how it got set low (off), or if it will happen again, but it seems to be a master sound controller that would override anything in an app.

    If you read the above post you would know they got it resolved. Also they tell what they had to do to get it to work.

    I have tried everything in this post, even the factory reset, and still do not have text notifications, LG730. I am using handsent and have had no issues with those notifications and all settings are identical for both text systems.

    Sound is on, all settings are where they should be... neither sound nor vibration for texts is working. I've tried unchecking delete old texts as suggested. When changing ringtones under "calls" I am able to hear the sound options, but not so when browsing the text sounds. I've had this phone a week and this just happened.

    I have an s3 and I was using the "Blocking Mode" feature on my phone which blocks phone calls, notifications, etc.,
    During specified times of the day/night or "Always". Somehow the "Always" option got checked. Once I unselected that option, my notifications started working again.

    I have the same problem with my galaxy note I called AT&T and they had me uninstall AT&T messenger and power down my phone and turn it back on .
    all of this was the result of trying to update my phone. works just fine now.
    hope it works for you

    I did this but it didn't work until I disabled AT&T Messaging through the App manager as well.
    Settings/application manager/All Apps tab/AT&T Messaging/Disable

    I figured out how to fix this!!

    Here are the steps,

    1. Goto system settings > application manager> all .

    Then scroll down till you get to "messages" . Click it.

    I bet you you have "show notifications" unchecked. Check that box and voila, notifications back

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I've had this phone for 3 days and had so many issues with it, this being the most frustrating. I'm so grateful that you solved my problem. Though I am also feeling a little sheepish for having caused it myself! :eek:

    Have read your suggestion, together with all other suggestions found, but until now, no one of all the tried solution, including yours, gave me my sound back on receiving SMS.
    Any one else who have a solution will be appreciated.

    David - You are AWESOME! I've been dealing with this issue for weeks now and I worked with HTC chat support and they couldn't even figure it out. They wanted me to do a hard restore! I am so glad I read this forum before doing that! Thank you SOOO much!!!!!!
