    When someone is texting me my phone will not make noise or the message will not show up in my notification bar. It shows the messages on the text icon but it does not alert me when i first receive them. So i dont know when i receive a text message unless im constantly unlocking my phone. In my settings everything is turned on and on full voulme according to the notification settings. But im still not getting notified. Ive tried restarting my ohkne but i still got nothing. Please help.

    Have you checked the app settings? Do you use a third party sms app? What do those settings look like? I found for me some of my contacts had no notification settungs for sms. Check those too.

    I also seemed to be missing alerts for my text messages with my new S7. I'm using the Textra app as my default messaging app, and I believe I've resolved the issue buy having this app notify me twice (2 mins apart) if I don't read the message.

    I was having this same EXACT problem. all my notification setting were set to "on" in my message settings but I fixed it by going to my phone settings then "device" then "notifications" then I scrolled through until I found my messaging app and sure enough that notification setting was set to "off" for whatever reason. I turned it back to on and it is fixed. My notifications are back to normal.

    I am having the same problem. As in the original post, everything is set to on including the above suggestion. I never get notifications.

    I am having the same problem. When you say go to your phone's settings, do you just mean "settings" in my apps? If so, I don't see a "device" selection in my Settings . . ?

    Settings, then notifications. It lets you decide which apps you want to receive notifications from.

    I was having the same issue after upgrading to the OS Nougat. All of my notifications were set to "on", so I went into my application manager & opened my text messaging app & found under the app settings that the notifications was set to "muted". Once I turned the "show silently" off, my text notifications worked again.

    I was having same issue and everything was on etc. Well I took my phone to AT&T and found out that it was the clean master apps I had in my phone. As soon as they deleted them my sound came back.

    You can pick and choose which apps you want to have notifications with on the Clean Master App. I use it .

    Guys I got it! Go into text messages. On the side hit the volume button up like normal. You should see ringtone pop up at the top of the page. In the right hand corner hit the little grey arrow and tah dah it should show your notifications and that they are off. Tap it and drag it to the volume you would like. I don't know HOW this happened but it fixed it for me and my mom. Good luck.

    Figured it out! I've had this problem for months and have been so bummed, was waiting for an update for a fix because an update made my notifications mute.

    Solution:
    After reading comments here i went to tinker again, go to Settings>Sound&vibration>Volume it has an adjust bar for each--- notification, ringtone, media, system, etc.

    I think I am going to go mad. I've looked through this and many other threads and have tried every suggestion going. I've just uninstalled Clean Master but that didn't help either. I get an icon briefly appear when I send an email but no icon or sound when I receive one.
    If I take it into an EE store will they be able to sort it? Fed up missing email notifications.
    I wish I had my old phone back - even though it wasn't working very well.

    I have noticed that if I have my text or email app open, and then I get a text or email, then I won't get the notification sound. Might this be what's happening to you?
