    I use a lot of chat apps on my IPhone SE. I use skype, hangouts, wechat, whatsapp, facetime etc.

    I do not know why but I do not get any ringing notification at all for any of these. I had checked my notifications and it appears that it is on for each one.

    Can someone tell me why im having these issues? I want to have a ringing sound for everything except messages which i would like to get a note sound etc.

    Do you have other sound issues or just about notifications?

    Hi there. There are sound issues as well.

    This is what i like. Any phone calls i receive, i want there to be a ringing sound. Any chat notifications, i want a notification sound. The thing is if someone sends me a message, the only way i would know it is if im looking at my iphone at the time. There should be a ringing sound when a message is sent but i dont know why there isn't.

    So i know it has to be my settings. But my settings when i looked at it, there doesn't seem to be any issues though.

    Hey all so im still having these issues.


    I will explain a few things again. Programs like whatsapp, many times i do not get notification. Sometimes i do.. many times i don't.


    I also downloaded some apps from app store. I set some notifications on it... but none of them show etc. I went to notifications, then clicked on the program, i have


    allow notifications
    show in notification center
    sounds
    badge app icon
    show on lock screen


    All these are turned on


    The alert style when unlocked is

    Banners


    So why am i have these issues? Whatsapp and skype and my other programs many times do not get a sound or notification. Its like sometimes i get it... many times i do not.

    If your sound button is turned off you will not get the sound alert. I know it sounds simple, but have you checked to make sure this is turned on?

    Still having the same issues.

    On wechat, i would receive messages but it does not make a sound. Sometimes it would make a sound

    On whatsapp when someone sends me a message, i would never notice it unless i click on the phone to see if there are any notification.

    I also updated my IOS to the latest version.

    Can someone tell me why im having these issues?

    Thanks.

    Resetting settings (not content) doesn't change your data. Reinstalling can also preserve data if you make a backup that you then restore from.

    Where is the option to reset setting?


    So when i do this, no program will get deleted right?


    Also can someone tell me exactly how should my settings be at the moment?


    I use


    wechat
    whatsapp
    skype


    So far everytime i got get a message on whatsapp or wechat... it doesn't seem to be there. Everytime i get a message on wechat, sometimes it makes a vibrate sound... other times it doesn't.

    With whatsapp, when i receive a message, it does not ever seem to send me a vibrating sound. However if i were to receive a call on whatsapp... the strange thing is the first call to me it does not make a sound. On the next call, it does. Meaning you have to call me twice in a row in whatsapp but it does vibrate my phone.

    On skype i do recall i make my notifications with no sound so i dont think there is an issue with skype. But wechat and whatsapp are my issues here.


    On wechatnotifciations


    i have


    allow noficications
    sounds
    badge app icon
    show on lock screen
    show in history
    show as banners


    All of these are on.



    There is option to choose temporary or persistent. It is shown on persisent.



    Is this correct? On whatsapp, i have the same exact settings.
