Text Messages Not Making Notification Sounds....

Anyone else having this problem? Sometimes I'll get a text and it won't make the sound. What's up with that? The wierd thing is that it will work all day then start not making a sound. Anyway to fix this?

join the club. (meaning, it happens to many People) i would think it's not a hardware issue, just a mere software problem that will most likely be fixed in later software versions, so dont worry do a simple restart/restore and that will usually work

I have noticed it happens when I'm using the headphones, the ringtone for calls goes to the headphones and speaker but texts just go to the headphones.

I have the same issue. Works all day and then all of a sudden stops. I just cycle the power and it works again. Doesn't do it every day though. I think that we forget it's a computer and occasionally needs a reboot.

Yup, I'm in the same boat along with the lock/unlock sounds doing the same thing.

I had the problem you guys are describing AFTER I changed from the default sound. When I put it back to the default value I started getting alerts when SMS arrived.

yup, almost everyone I know has seen this happen even with the 2.01 and even after restores / hard boots, force killing SMS, etc.

Best thing to do, wait till this thread gets to 3 pages and put a link to it when you fill out the feedback form at www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html

Add another to the list. The same thing happens to me, but it's fine after I reboot the phone. It doesn't do it often though. Maybe once a day or every few days. We gotta remember it is a little computer so it does need to be rebooted every now and then.

Good point. My girlfriend's 3G loses SMS notification every week or so, but a simple reboot does the trick.

I get the same thing after 10-20 texts.

SMS stops making alerts.

Lock sounds stop working.

Etc.

Been happening since 2.0. Still happens on 2.0.2.

Very annoying. I use SMS as my primary means of communication.

Text message sounds/notifications not working

Hello all,
Please add me to this list. I too have noticed it happens after using headphones, but plugging them back in and removing them and restarting the iPhone doesn't work. Add me to this solutions list if possible.
