    Just wondering if anyone else has run into this.

    If Bluetooth is on for both my Mac and iPhone, texts do not generate notifications on my iPhone. The screen doesn't even turn on. The notification is on the screen when I wake it, though.

    If I turn off Bluetooth on either device, notifications come in just fine.

    I suspected it might have something to do with Handoff, but turning off Handoff on both the Mac and phone had no effect. Still no notifications when both devices have Bluetooth on.

    What the everloving **** is going on here?

    iPhone 7+ iOS 10.0.2, Mac is running Sierra.

    Are any other devices in play, like Apple Watch or anything like that?

    Nope, no watch. Just the iPhone and the Mac.

    Do you get the notification and message on your Mac?

    I am seeing this as well. I have tried turning off handoff and wifi, but if bluetooth is on no notifications come through. I am also using a 7+ and and an iMac running Sierra.
