    I Can't Seem to Get Any Sound Notifications

    Hey.

    I own a new Samsung Galaxy S3 and I can't seem to get any sound notifications when I am being texted.

    I have checked the volume in the "Settings" menu, but they are all at max. I don't know if it matters, but I believe the phone is not rooted. I truly need help on this one, I'm going crazy having to check my phone once every 5 minutes for new texts.

    My closest assumption(but I may be very wrong) is that this all happened when I used GoSMS pro instead of my normal message app and selected something that would only allow notifications for texts from GoSMS, but I uninstalled GoSMS in the meantime, so I can't really tell.

    I'm sorry if this should be in another section, I'm just gettin' desperate with this thing. Help would be much appreciated.

    Are you using a sound on the SD card or internal memory? If it's on the SD card, try pulling the battery and reseating the SD card firmly but gently and see if that solves the issue.

    to the forum!

    Why aren't you sure if the phone is rooted?

    I'm sorry, but what do you mean by "using a sound"? And I don't have an SD card.

    Because I don't know the definition of a "rooted" phone.

    If you got the phone from an individual there's a possibility, then, otherwise it's stock.

    Using a sound as in picked a sound file. If you don't have an SD card, well, you should, but that means the fix I offered won't work.

    Try picking another sound file to use as your notification and see if the problem resolves. If so, try switching back. If not, I'd take it back to where you got it and ask for a replacement unit.

    Also, go into Settings - Sound - Volume. There should be 3 sliders, the middle one is the notification sound. Make sure this is not all the way down.

    Unfortunately that's not necessarily the answer,but may be in this case. I'm not new to android or the galaxy series, I'm not getting notification sounds for messages either, I can assure you my notifications are turned on.

    You are not the only one OP.

    I took my phone back for this problem and my new one is exactly the same, default whistle still set as tone,never changed it from new and gosms been nowhere near this phone.

    I'm having the same problem with my S2, I get all notification sounds except for SMS. I bought it new, haven't rooted or jailbroken it. I've checked the notification volume, tried using different sounds, restarting, updating firmware & software, and there isn't a notification icon in the top menu. Any ideas, anyone?

    Have you tried a 3rd party messaging app like Handcent?
