Phone doesn't make a noise after every text...

Most of the time my phone will make a tone when I get a text. Yes I know how to set it up in settings > sounds and selected my desired sound. It makes a sound most of the time but not every single time... sometimes when im texting someone and check my phone and see that I got a new one but the phone didn't make a noise... is this normal?

I believe, now I'm not an expert, but I do believe that if you receive a text while you are actually in the messaging app, you will not hear the normal tone. Mine does this slight "woosh" noise though. It's similar but less loud than the one that you hear when you send an email or message.

If I have it on silent (99% of the time) it doesn't vibrate when I am texting and receive a message. So if I miss the banner notification, I don't realize I have a text until I go back.

That happens to me as well so I'm guessing its normal.

My phone does this type of thing every once in a while. Won't play tones, volume, mute, etc don't seem to work. I find that a complete power down fixes it. I rarely completely turn my phone off so I guess it needs to be reset every once in a while.
