    Depends on how you say the device up. But yes, as the learned one above said, you can, if you want to.

    Yes, you can. Try this: Go to Settings-> Notifications-> Lock screen. If the phone is set to anything but "Show all notifications" then chances are that is the cause of not being able to see them on your lock screen.

    See what's enabled under device administrators, maybe there's an app there blocking the lock screen notifications.

    Good point, if you have an anti-virus or security app, it may be blocking the notifications from the lock screen. That would explain why my method didn't work, because anti-virus software would bypass the built-in settings app...

    Anything enabled as device administrator? Some special accounts or sharing files with some public institutions require extra privacy policies that could block your lock screen notifications.

    But thanks for all your interest

    Good news then! Maybe it was just a temporary glitch or some conflict with an app that got updated from the Play Store. Keep us posted.

    I have verizon... Go to settings> Lockscreen & security> tap notifications on lookscreen> tap content on lockscreen> select show content... You can then select which apps you want notifications from & turn off ones you don't want. SIDE NOTE... If you turn on the "always on display" feature that shows time, date, etc when screen is off, it will show notification ICONS for weather, e-mails messages, etc... You can double tap a icon> enter pin# and it will open right to the e-mail or message etc... You DON'T even have to turn your screen on & select it... Love this feature.

    Im having a similar issue. I can see notifications for everything except missed calls. Is anyone else experiencing this? I have show content for all apps in the locked screen notifications section that you mentioned above. Any ideas on what it could be?
