    I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. I keep it on Vibrate all the time, essentially. I found I was missing a lot of text messages because it's not vibrating when I receive texts. It only behaves this way in Vibrate. When sound is turned on, everything notifies as normal.

    I have checked the following:

    Messages -> More -> Notifications -> Set to on, Vibrations set to on.

    Settings -> Sound and notification -> App notifications -> Messages -> Block Notifications turned off

    Press the volume key -> Settings (cog) -> Notifications is set to the left and grayed out when phone is set to vibrate. (I tried to post a pic of this but forums wouldn't let me)

    This last is where i believe my problem lies. How can I make it so when my phone is on vibrate, It also vibrates when i receive notifications?

    Phone Model: SM-G925V
    Android Version: 5.1.1

    Odd. Open the Messaging app, tap Menu>Settings, and look for the notification options there. Is it set to vibrate, regardless of the notification tone?

    Yes it is. I decided to test a bit more on the notification to see if it was everything or just text messages. I set up the facebook app as well as a temp exchange account.

    I do get vibrate notifications with:
    facebook
    gmail
    Twitter

    I do not get vibrate notifications with:
    text
    exchange email

    Headscratcher. Maybe try reinstalling the firmware using Smart Switch.
