    Default Message notification

    For some reason, my phone won't notify me when I get a text message. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

    Volume OK? Selected sound for notification ? Still no luck ?
    Try Missed call reminder to set it up. You also get LED notification control with it (For supported colors)

    You need to have notifications checked in your settings

    My sound is on. I don't get notifications regardless. Even on vibrate, I dont get messages no matter what. I read 9 messages I didn't even know I got this morning

    If you have Hangouts installed, try disabling its settings related to SMS and notifications. Some people have had similar issues with Hangouts and third-party SMS apps in the past. Other than that, all I can think of are the notifications settings that UJ95x mentioned.

    I had this problem. This is what worked for me. Use the volume rocker to bring up a volume pop-up screen and select the settings icon on this pop-up screen. You will see an independant volume option for notifications. I do not know why I only see it here. If I try to go straight to the settings option from the top pull down, I only get option to set volume for ringtone and notification together. Only by using the setting from the volume rocker could I set my notification volume higher seperately from my ringtone setting.
