  1. I have a samsung galaxy S3 phone. A the sounds work fine, however, I seem to be having trouble getting notified of an incoming text. I have checked my settings numerous times and they all appear correct but no sound or vibration Signals a new text has arrived. I have also requested notification of texts I have sent being opened but I seem unable to receive those either. Any help would be extremely helpful. Thank you. My android version is 5.1.1. Thanks again
