    I constantly get new messages but there is no notification icon nor is the light blinking? Once I open the messages application, there are always new messages.

    I saw a couple of posts on different blogs that One X is having this issue as well.

    Anyone else with the same problem?

    I have this problem too. I no longer rely on notifications... I just check all the time now.

    We shouldn't have to do this.

    Completely agree. I've called both T-Mobile and HTC to let them know, and they both said they would forward the information to the right people. Hope it gets fixed in the next software update.

    just like the push email issue, i'm pretty sure this related to the whole multitasking fiasco that HTC is calling a "feature". US versions of One S and One X both suffer from the same issues and in dire need of an update from HTC.

    Thinking about getting the 32GB international version. Does anyone with the international version have this problem?

    Strange..I'm on my 4th HTC one s for unrelated issues but I've never had a notification issue with any of them. I would suggest checking all your settings to make sure all the notifications are on if not try a master reset?

    I'm not having notification issues, either...but I use Chomp, so don't know if that makes a difference...

    Hi I have the international One X and it is pretty perfect. No notification issues so far.

    I have this problem on my T-Mobile One S too. Until HTC & T-Mo solve the problem, I am using SMS Reminder Lite to not miss any SMS.

    I too miss notifications. Seems to happen while I'm running a program.

    Had my first non-notification this morning (T-Mobile US) ... can't pin it on anything different, my phone was in my side backpack pocket at the time. Very odd!

    Okay, now look. I'm not sure whether I do understand it right, but...
    When a phone receives a message, the messaging application analyzes it and sets an EVENT(new.mesg or so) (not sure about the exact mechanism: does it just set the EVENT or sends directly to the notification daemon). The EVENTS are monitored by various applications. Ideally the notification daemon sees that EVENT and creates a notification based on its information (senders name, text or so).

    NOW what if some other application steals an EVENT? in that case the notification daemon has nothing to show (since it receives nothing).
    What I am leading to is that some applications may steal your message and set its own EVENT (and what if it is not meant to be set?). Just like Go SMS does.

    I had this problem (not notifying abt new messages) for a while and started to think how all that machanism might be working. I came up with this idea and.. removed Go SMS app. And that's how my problem was solved. Now I have both: auditory and visual notifications about new messages back

    You can put it any way you want to, the point is that half the time when I get a text message, the phone doesn't make a sound, the light doesn't blink, there is no message icon in the notification bar, but when I open the text app, there are messages in there. Maybe it is not 50% of the time, but it happens every single day, a bunch of times per day.

    I am having the same issue with text messages. It started happening a few weeks ago maybe. I can tell you this has nothing to do with the 4.04 update either because I have yet to receive the damn update! I'm running out of patience with HTC and this phone

    hey, i had the same problem, i was playing where is my water and suddenly after it i stopped getting notifications, i think there is a point that other applications "steal" messages. I had Chomp SMS application for more smileys, I removed it and got notifications So you guys think what other application can steal your messages and remove it!!
