    kiran ahmad could you please offer more information about the android version you are running, the launcher you are using and such? I'm assuming this is the Galaxy Note 2.

    Hey kiran;
    I was having the same problem. After probing around the settings in my LG Optimus L5, I found there's 2 ways of setting notifications. One is through System Settings->Apps->Messaging. In there, you can choose to turn off notifications, Clear Cache, or Clear Data. Doing the last 2 things doesn't seem to help. Then I started my Messaging app, pressed the menu button, clicked on Settings->Notifications. Ah-ha...the messaging notifications had somehow been turned off (this is a different setting that the other 'System Settings'). So I turned them back on, and it works fine now. It must have been a side-effect from something else..possibly an Android bug. Hope that helps.

    I am having the same problem and cannot seem to fix it I have a Galaxy s3 and notifications are turned on, although I am not notified of a message. I am receiving emails fine but not text messages. This is the case even if my phone is on sound and vibrate, still no notification.

    Default Re: no text message notifications

    I'm having the same problem with the Note 2. All my notification boxes are checked, but I'm not getting the notifications. This happened after I added the message widget onto my screen. I've since deleted the widget, but it's still not working. I've triple checked that my settings for text notifications using the steps that are listed above and I always use the blocking function so I know that that is not on. I'm using Android version 4.3. Thank you.

    Is everyone using the stock messaging app? Or have any of you downloaded another messaging app?

    For instance I use Handcent.

    I am having the exact same problem. My notifications are all set correctly. Checked about 15 times. Very frustration. Any solution to this problem yet?

    Found another site with the information that corrected this problem for me. I removed "hangouts" from my phone. finally worked. Here is the information I got it from:

    Among the common culprits are the Hangouts app and some pre-installed messaging apps of some carriers like Verizon. Based on the statements of some users who have uninstalled the mentioned apps, they were able to solve the problem.
