    I had the same problem and it drove me nuts! If you turn up your volume you will see an additional setting button. Select it and you will see the volume for your ringtone, media, notifications and system. Somehow my notifications option was turned down. I turned everything back up and it works! Why there is an additional settings button I have no idea!

    Sounds like Samsung's customer service rep is just wanting to blow you off. My wife's S4's alert tone on messaging works fine. I've never been able to solve the text alert tone issue. I get one on brand new texts but nothing after. If they think we're always looking at our phone for subsequent texting threads, they're obviously not considering typical users. Next phone will not be a Samsung.

    Here's how I finally fixed my LG G3 Android phone:
    I had been using the Verizon Messages+ app. No notifications worked though all the settings correct.
    Changed to using the Messaging app that came with the LG. Not as fancy, but notifications now work beautifully.

    For some reason my notifications on my phone randomly stopped working. I managed to fix it by going into Settings- sounds and notifications - App notifications - Scrolled down to 'Messages' and for some reason it said blocked next to messages, so I clicked onto it and turned the block notifications off.

    I was not aware that my power save was on, once I turned that off, my sounds worked as usual.

    I was having the same issue on my LG G3 after the Lollipop (v. 6) upgrade, all of my sounds were working fine except the notifications for text messages. I am using the Verizon Message+ app and had no issues prior to that point. I went through all of the settings and even took it to the Verizon store. What they found (that I foolishly forgot to test) was that the problem was app specific as the sounds worked when using a different app for messaging. So I uninstalled the app (or at least the last update) and re-opened the app, poof, and now the sounds work. Re-installed the latest update for the app and it works as before. Kind of strange that Verizon had not seen this issue by the time I had gotten there, but stuff happens, just glad I was able to resolve it. Hope this helps someone else.

    I have just purchased a Note 4 and have spent 3 days trying to sort this problem of notification sound going off when i get incoming call or message or whatever. Eventually I had the phone flashed, however Samsung told me that they know of this problem with sound notification and it will be fixed on the next update which will be in approximately 3 months time.

    Had the same problem, this is how I fixed it. (Note 4)

    1. Settings (obvi)

    2.Sounds and Notifications

    3.Application Notifications

    4. Scroll down to the messenger app you use and make sure notifications aren't blocked.

    not sure how mine got set to blocked but I'm glad I finally figured it out. hope this helps

    i had the same issue with my samsung s4 mini.
    the solution was to unmute in settings -> my device -> sound -> volume -> notifications.
    i don't recall how this setting became muted, although it seemed to start after i had installed a led blinker notification app.

    Go to app manager and scroll down to messages. Maybe notifications is blocked. That worked for me

    I found a fix. So all of a sudden my text messages stopped alerting me and my wife's snap chat stopped giving notification as well. I went to settings > notification > Advanced (top right) > then found Messages app and it was blocked for some reason. Same was with my wife's snap chat. I "allowed" the notifications and it worked.

    All sounds work except for text messages. No other apps are downloaded that would interfere with this.
