    You probably have your Blocking Mode ON, for Energy Saving. That shuts down all message sounds.
    Go to Settings, My Device, and scroll down to Blocking mode , then turn it OFF.

    Try going to hangouts, settings and then uncheck sms and notifications. Hangouts was my problem.

    Go to the message icon, click the 3 dots in the right hand corner then go to settings abd notifications. You have to have the received notification box ticked. No sound will play if you don't have the new message icon to show with each message. Slightly annoying but it's the only way I'm afraid. You'll notice if you uncheck this box everything below it, including notification sound phases to grey.

    On the Vodafone 875 (Mini)

    It is not that complicated, but it is so difficult to find!

    On the home screen, scroll down from the top of the screen.

    Look for something called "Notification Alert". It is a toggle, if it is greyed out the sound notification is switched off. Touch it once to light it up and the sound notification is on.

    Then test by sending a text message to the phone.

    I could not find this in the PDF manual from Vodafone.

    I could not find anything about it on the Vodafone web site...

    The local Vodafone shop in Lakeside, put the problem down to a "software problem" !!

    Wow. Thanks it worked for me. But is this the same option which we see in messaging >settings>notification ? I tried this first, didn't worked. But your trick worked. I found this site from google. Glad to be here.

    Another thing to check is the mode your phone is in, I.e. default, home, night, airplane, etc.
    Mine was in night mode for weeks, no notification alerts, and I finally figured it out!

    For some reason my incoming texts aren't being accompanied by a sound. I definitely do not have the phone's sound off.

    How do I fix this?

    This trick worked for me on Sony Xpedia I got off this website.
    many thanks

    this is how I fixed it.
    1. Go to settings
    2. Application manager
    3. You will see three tabs : downloaded, running, and All
    You would want to flip to the tab that says "All", by just slide your finger across the screen to the left.
    4. When you're under the tab "All", scroll down ( this may take a few mins). slowly keep on looking until you see a "Messaging" icon and click on it.
    5. Under Force Stop and Disable, there should be a Check the box that said show notifications. Check that.
    6. Now you should have notification sounds for your text message.

    I agree. Nothing has worked for my phone either. I've tried everything that everyone has recommended and nothing! Very frustrating to have a device that worked properly and then just stopped working for no reason.
