    Hello everyone,

    My wife recently acquired the G2 and really likes it, but there is one thing that seems to be bothering her. She is coming from an iPhone and one of the features that she liked is that it would still give her a notification if she received a text even when on a phone call. Sometimes she'll have marathon sessions with her mother and might miss a few texts without the notification sound. Is it possible with a setting on the phone or a downloaded app to enable this?

    Have you looked in the Phone settings or the Text messaging app settings?

    Yeah, I've looked there and nothing obvious jumped out at me. Also, she has tried both the stock messaging app and Hangouts for her sms needs.

    Maybe Textra?

    I use Handcent for text messages. When I get a text while talking on the phone the text message window pops up on the screen. Also, a notification immediately shows up on the status bar.

    Also, as Golfdriver97 suggested, go to your messaging app that comes with the phone, go to Settings, Notifications, and then make sure the appropriate boxes are checked.

    Hm. That's interesting. My wife and I both have G2s and neither of ours does it. I wonder what setting we have turned off/you have turned on to get it to do that?

    Yeah, I've done that and nothing screams out to me that would control the call notification settings.

    I'll test it and report back. Maybe I'm smoking something but I believe I do get alerted.

    Get the free Verizon messaging app on Google play. Does way more than the stock message app, including what you are looking for.

    I tested it and I hear and audible alert come through while on a call notifying me of a text. Its not super loud but is noticeable.

    Here's a screenshot of my message settings.



    Nothing though stands out as to which setting it is that makes it work.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to look. My settings are configured exactly the same way. So weird that two people have it work but both of our G2s don't.

    Very weird indeed. I actually did a video showing that it works but no need in posting it as it won't actually help you. I checked my call settings as well and nothing stands out there too.
