    Hello, when someone texts me while the phone is locked, i will only get a vibrate. it wont make the usual receive text sound. is this normal or can i do something about it?

    Also, is there anyway to change the volume on the "glass" sound when receiving emails, please let me know, thanks!

    Double check to see if the notification is even on. Outside of that, a simple reset/restart of the iPhone should get it back.

    yea the notification is on. it seems to be a problem on some phones as there is also a thread on the apple forums. can you please tell me how to reset the phone?

    To reset, hold down the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons until the phone shuts off and then the Apple logo comes back up.

    is it tied to the volume of the phone? Just turn up the ringer volume and everything should be louder

    thanks for the tip but in general everything is on the highest volume.

    for my macbook i went into the system and changed the volume, is there anyway to do the same with my iPhone? TIA
