    Hi all,

    I have an iPhone 4 and did the stupid thing and upgraded to iOS7 and now there is an issue with my text messages. My phone does not notify me that I have a new text message and the only way I will know is by clicking on the text message app and going into the application and that's when I will see them – sometimes I may even get messages a lot later than I should have received them. I have never used iMessage as I’m not a fan of it so I leave this switched off.

    Can anyone help please??? :confused:

    Argh I am very annoyed over this. Don't know what apple has done to message notifications but this is how iOS 7 works.

    The only notification of a new message you receive is the numbered bubble in the messages icon. But it's not the same as iOS 6 :(
