    Hi guys.. If you have Clean Master App.. It might be the culprit.. Go to Clean master>Tools>Notification Cleaner>turn it Off.. It restored my notification sound.. It worked for my Samsung galaxy J& core.. Good Luck

    Galaxy 8 - Go to:
    Notifications- "Select which apps you would like to receive notifications from" : scroll down to Messages- and slide button over
    Go to Advanced tab on top of screen
    Scroll down thru apps to verify that Messages is unblocked.

    I tried many of the suggestions in this thread, but none seemed to work for me. I was not receiving notifications of any kind for text messages. I tried restarting the phone, removing the SIM card, going into Settings > Applications > Messages > Notifications and tried all the tricks with the volume and choosing a different notification sound, etc.... still nothing. I have the Galaxy S6 by the way. It turns out there is another setting aside from turning Notifications on or off. There is also a setting to block notifications. I don't know how it got turned on but here you go: Settings > Applications > Application Manager > Messages > Notifications > Allow Notifications > ON!!
    Thank you Krystel!! Like you, I tried many different ways to fix this problem. Your suggestion was the solution. Somehow the "Allow Notifications" was on blocked.

    Try this Settings> Applications> Messages App make sure you have the notifications turned on. (By where you force stop/clear cache)
    thanks buddy but it did not work. i have the found the solution going through above method. go to setting> Applications>Messages App then check its notification are "muted or not" if yes then click notifications & turn off the option > show silently

    Make sure your phone is not paire to a Bluetooth speaker as that will divert sounds to the paired device.

    I had the same issue. Very frustrating. I found that in my setting > notification >message + that I had show silently was on. Once I turned that off, it worked again. Not sure how it was turned off.

    Unfortunately still not working for me still (Galaxy S5, Android 4.4.4, AT&T). I've tried all of the above fixes, nothing works. Am still not getting text message sound when message app is open and chat string is ongoing, only when the app is closed do I hear a notification sound then, upon opening and reviewing message, should that person keep texting, no sound. I've also tried installing a 3rd party message application from Google Play Store just to test it out, and still have the same problem, no sound with chat/message text string. ANY THOUGHTS APPRECIATED. Thanks! (If / when AT&T updates to Lollipop maybe this will go away ugh.)
    Download Textra from google play. it notifies in active chat

    If you have enabled Google's still experimental "System UI Tuner" for your Settings app (available since Marshmallow - go here: https://www.howtogeek.com/318539/how...stock-devices/ to find out how) then make sure Notifications for whatever app (in this case Messages) is set to at least Level 3. Go to Settings> Apps and tap on [your app name], then tap on Notifications and drag the Importance slider at least 3/5 of the way to the right. Anything below that and you won't hear a sound.

    That was the issue for my mother who has a Moto G5s. Me I'm on the darkside (iOS). So why am I here? Cause I hate it when stuff doesn't "just work".

    Hope this helps some of you Android users. Bye! https://forums.androidcentral.com/im...ons/icon12.png

    This is the simple solution.Go to your message app you will see a 3 dots by the top right,press it and it will take you to the message app information,press it and you will see " notification "blocked". Just unblock it and your notification ring tone will come alive

    I have had the same problem The cause was Security Master's do not disturb settings. If you use Security Master you may find that Messages is marked with Do Not Disturb. If so, untick the box.

    It's the power saver. You have to list the msg app in exceptions which have unlimited access to power.

    I downloaded and paid for Textra in order to use different text tones with different people,
    It worked great until 3 or 4 days ago, now it has reverted to the standard Verizon tone.
    Galaxy S5, Droid 6.0.1
    I have not downloaded anything in a few weeks.
    Any ideas?

    Bro I know this is months old, but I just want to say I love you so much. Been having this problem for weeks now and I knew I didn't do anything wrong. Haven't even configured my security master but it already made changes without asking me. If it weren't for Applock I never wouldve installed this in the first place, but again thank you!!! <3

    I was just having this same issue on my Galaxy S6. My ringtone for calls was working, but not E-Mail or Text Messages. After some fiddling around I found a solution (for my problem at least) and I hope it helps some of you out as well.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Sounds and Notifications.
    3. Volume.
    4. Make sure all the sliders are up. Ex: Ringtone, Media, Notifications, System.

    As silly as it was my Notification and System volume bar somehow got muted and taken down to 0, while Ringtone and Media remained the same as before.

    Hope this helps some of you.
    OMG. Thank you I've been dealing with this problem for so long! I don't know why I didnt think of this earlier. I'm so glad I found this post.

    Galaxy s6 using Samsung messages. Got visual notification of text but no sound. Worked one day and then not the next. Tried everything I read (that I could understand) all notifications were “on” already so nothing worked. Then just fooling around...pressed and HELD the yellow Messages icon. Little bubble with ”app info” appeared, pressed it. Scrolled down, under App Settings, Notifications was blocked. Tapped it, turned “Allow notifications” and voila! Sound. Now this was AFTER every other spot in settings and other places mentioned in posts already showed allowed. Evidently there about a hundred ways to accidentally turn things off.
