I upgraded my AT&T GS2 over the weekend when the official release hit for the phone. Ever since the update I have had issues getting text notifications (sound and vibration). I have tried the stock messaging, Handcent, and GoSMS. If I reset the sound for the texts, or receive a phone call which rings normal, then I may receive a few texts with sound/vibration but then it goes away. I have factory-ed the phone already, and spoken to a Samsung rep via an AT&T rep, and they are saying the update may have been corrupted during the install (?) and that I can send in for a re-flashing. I have some knowledge of rooting / custom romming, but of course am concerned with warranty in case something doesn't go 100%. Anyone have any other ideas / suggestions / experience with this problem? Can't be without my phone for very long due to work...
I'm also having the same issue. I called at&t and they connected me to Samsung who wanted me to send my phone in for warranty repair.
I have two GSIIs in my house and both have the issue but for some reason mine seems to be more frequent. My notification sounds and vibration will stop only after hours while my other GSII's notifications may stop working after a day or so.
I have been getting the same issue after I ran the ICS update last weekend. I will get notifications if I am going back and forth with texts, but If the phone is left idle for a few hours the notifications stop I don't know I have a text unless I look at the phone. Also when I get a pic text it shows downloading for around 5-7 sec before the pic shows up, I never had that problem with my Captivate, pics would show up instantly. Anyone else have this issue with pics having to download before showing up?
So I did a factory reset as requested by Att to see if this would fix the issue. I did the reset last night and it seems to have solved both issues I was having. Pic texts having to download and not getting a notification when I received a text, both seem to be working now.
I am a proud owner of a Samsung Galaxy Y and it stopped beeping when new text messages arrive.
I've tried every setting and even tried a reset factory settings. Nothing helped.
So I wrote an app to do this. Mind you, I did it mostly to solve my own problem.
It's free, there's no GUI and no ads.
If anyone is interested I uploaded it to Google Play at https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...falk.falconsms
I've updated to the new 4.0.4 LK3 and so far so good. My Notifications haven't stopped and all seems well. Took 6 months but all is well with the notification issues.
Side note with this new update. They did remove the ability to uninstall the bloatware. This was allowed only in 4.0.3 which now seems to have been an accident. Of course if you skipped 4.0.3 you will no see difference with this issue as it wasn't allowed in gingerbread either.
