    This happens often - perhaps one out of every five texts... I receive a text, but there is no notification - nothing across the top status bar, no number next to the Messages icon on the home screen. The only way I know I have received a text is if I manually open Messages.

    I found that HTC was aware of this issue in May of 2012 (lots of info on tech blogs), but everything only stated that they are "working" on a fix. Has any fix been made?

    This is really frustrating! I sometimes won't see a text for hours or days because I can't seem to condition myself to manually check for them.

    Also, this is a "stock" One X on the ATT network.

    Thanks for any help!!

    Go into settings> apps> find HTC sense and clear cache, and find messages in there to and clear cache...I never had this problem myself though (ran it stock from May to November)

    thanks... I tried that, but "clear cache" is greyed out.

    Which software are you running? I had this problem before but that was fixed with the 2.20 update from AT&T

    The last answer partially helped me - but what was missing was this: on Settings > Apps > All > Messaging (of whatever messaging app you want to use)
    Under the Force Stop button, there should be a check box for "Show notifications". Mine was not checked and that was the cause of my issue. Hope this helps!
