    Hi Guys
    So i did the Lollipop update yesterday on my Galaxy S5 and when i get a text message i no longer get a Preview on the lock screen or a popup once unlocked . I've checked on Messages/settings/Notifications that the Popup Display and Preview message are both checked . Also when i get a message and i push the power button there isn't an envelop symbol top left of the screen just the blue led thats flashes .

    Your help on this would most appreciated Mik

    I'm not familiar with the S5 so I don't know what is and isn't normal, but if that's not normal on Lollipop (which changed a few things on the G3 for example, with which I am familiar), try a Cache Partition wipe.

    I still get the notification in the status bar but no banner. I like the banner so I can quickly respond to texts. I've been through it all twice and can't figure it out. I just got the Lolipop update on Thursday night for my S5 from Sprint.
    thanks,

    I have all my notifications back. You can go to settings/applications/messaging (or access settings from the messaging app directly) go to notification and all the options are there including pop-ups and lights

    I figured it out. You need to go to sounds and notifications. At the very bottom you need to select while locked. Then select show all content (other wise it will show you have a new message but not show the content of the message) one you select that you are good to go.
    With the new jpdate and selecting these its going to show like wifi notification as well. Its dumb but theyll fix it. But for now just select that and youll have the preview back.

    When I receive a text I can see a quick preview of the message like I should but when I click on the notification from the lock screen a faded grey square pops up below. Should there be something in that square? Is there more of a preview?

    I still cannot get the sender's message details. It only pops up saying Message but not the content of message and sender. Do I need to clear cache and wipe data. I recently upgraded my S4 to Lollipop.

    Thanks

    2) Click on the list bar and go to settings.
    3) Click Notification
    4) Check Preview message.

    Now restart the mobile.

    I had the same issue with my S4 after the Lollipop update. I would get a message on my lock screen showing "New Message" and nothing more, not who it was from or any of the content. I had preview enabled, I made messaging a priority, I enabled "show content" nothing worked. I needed to go to the Settings>More>Application Manager>All>Messaging and Clear Cache and Clear Data both. Then I restarted the phone and all is right in the world now! I get a preview of the message and I can see who it is from on the lock screen!!

    Thank you. This has been bugging the heck out of me, and this worked. I had both checked already but I unchecked them, and closed it and opened and checked them again, and now works.

    I have recently downloaded the Lollipop upgrade. Ever since i have been getting whatsapp preview messages on my main screen when my phone is unlocked. I don't see any settings to turn off the notification. I am not referring to the status bar, or in the scroll down menu. My phone will just be on the main home screen and I get messages showing at the top of my screen. How do i get this to stop? I looked at the notifications and sounds in the setting menu as well as the settings in the whatsapp application.

    I have tried to use the application manager and unchecked notifications under the "force stop" button and that just stops all notifications as a whole. I just want a notification in my status bar. Can anyone help me with this?
