    No Sound for Text Messages

    Hi all...had a bit of a fiddle downloading some new ringtones and now my notification tone doesn't work for text messages...still sounds if I get a message on IM...but when a text arrives it is silent. I have tried changing back to an old ringtone, deleting app in case it was messing things up...switching off, taking battery out....no change...nice loud notification for IM as usual...but still silent when a text arrives...any ideas please?
    Thanks in advance

    You can try this:
    Open up your text message page. Open up your settings tab(lower left button on phone) this will allow you to adjust only your text settings. It may be set to silent. Hope this helps!

    I have exactly the same problem with mine. Sometimes it plays the whole message alert sound other times part of it or not at all and just vibrates. Checked the settings nothing wrong there, if I turn delivery reports on it works with them every time just not when receiving texts. Can't figure it out, a trip to the Vodafone shop might be in order I think

    Have you checked the settings on the text message app and made sure notifications are on and you have selected a notification tone? If yes, how about going to settings/application/all/text message and clearing cache and data?

    My wife's Samsung s3has the same issue ie no notification sound when receiving SMS. To fix this problem, drag your finger from top to bottom on the screen to reveal toggling option for features like drive mode,wifi,notification ,etc..toggle notification on by touching the icon making sure it is lit green.enjoy the SMS sound again !!!
    Good luck
