Text message alert

I was getting my text message notifications on my Android phone just fine.,  however just last week I noticed that I was not getting the alerts anymore and I missed a bunch of texts.  I went to the settings and everything seems to be the same.  Does anyone know why my phone is no longer alerting me that a text message was received?

Re: Text message alert

In reviwing my own Android phone setup, I discovered that the volume for the text notification sound for some reason was set way low, so low that there wasn't any way I could hear the specific sound that had been selected to serve as the notification.  After I moved the volume up quite a bit, I then did a test text and heard the noficiation just fine.  Hopefully your situation is something as easy to fix and this might lead you to find your issue.
