Notification sound stopped working for text messages


Thread Starter

Actually, what I FIRST noticed was that my phone stopped ringing. It vibrated, but no sound would come. I reinstalled my custom ringtone and that started working again (I'm not 100% convinced that it works all the time though, because I have missed some calls, but then again, my hearing isn't great).

The same thing started happening with my text message notifications. I thought that reinstalling the notification sound might work, but it didn't. The phone vibrates a bit for notifications, but there is no sound. And yes, the phone is set for sound, not vibrate.

The fact that both sounds stopped working at around the same time (well, I think so).

FYI, I can test the notification sound and it it's good. It just doesn't seem to play when I actually get a text.
