    When someone is texting me my phone will not show the text message in my notification bar. It doesnt show the messages on the text icon where the number 1 or 2 comes out to show how many messages you have as well. So i dont know when i receive a text message unless im constantly unlocking my phone. In my settings everything is turned on and on full voulme according to the notification settings. But im still not getting notified. Ive tried restarting my ohkne but i still got nothing. Please help.

    Welcome to Android Central! I thought the S9 is still on preorder.

    Do you get any notification sound at all? Do you have a smartwatch connected?

    I am having the same problem. It is infuriating and I have been adjusting settings for a couple days trying to fix. Any luck resolving this?

    It is giving notifications and sounds for emails and other data besides SMS. No external devices are connected.

    Same here on my Pixel 2. I think the latest security update did this. I have the application Reply and that doesn't show either for my quick replies. Everything else works; sound and pop window

    If you've got the app Security Master installed on your S9 phone,take it off! That app is what is blocking your notifications for your messaging to come through. An employee for Best Buy figured this out for me yesterday. Once you do that,restart your phone,make sure your notification settings are all on and you will be set.

    It could be, same thing been happening to my phone and I realized I had the app "Hi Security" n thought i might as well give it a try. So I deleted the app and restarted my phone and tested to see if it worked... and it did! Now I can see the message icon in my notification bar and when I open my phone on the locked screen I can see the icon there now too. All fixed.
