    My iPhone 4 now has no sound when receiving texts. Volume is max, ringtone is selected, works when selected on test. I have reset in iTunes, but just the same. A couple of times in the last few weeks the alert has sounded, but very rarely. Can anyone advise please? I am on iOS 7.

    Do you have the mute switch on the side of the phone switched to mute? (it will show an orange bar if on mute).

    Is Do Not Disturb on?

    Thank you Tyler23, Do Not Disturb was set! I think iOS 7 has reset everything, and that's one I didn't check. I'm grateful to you.
