    Today my phone suddenly stopped notifying me of messages on the lock screen! It would even wake the screen when I got a message, but nothing would pop up. I don't think I've changed any settings - it used to show the notification, including the sender and message content. I tried to google it but can't find much for this issue on marshmallow. I have notifications for messages on, pop up display on, message preview on, and it's set to show content on the lock screen. After some messing around I finally got it to pop up that I've gotten a message, but now it doesn't say the sender or show the message. Am I missing something? Let me know if more info is needed!

    Edit: The solution was buried in an even deeper menu!! In addition to the preview message option in the message settings AND the lock screen settings, there was a third option in the application manager. For anyone who has a similar problem, look for this in the application manager and see if either of the last two options are checked. Somehow that last one had gotten checked on mine and all I needed to do was uncheck it.

    I did that before my original post. I feel like this is definitely the right setting for this issue but no luck.
