Help No text and email notification sounds


Android Enthusiast
Jun 1, 2011
Recently notification sounds for new email and text messages have stopped. I notice only a short vibration for text and nothing for email. Sound works fine elsewhere. For instance the ring tone works and can be changed without a problem. Facebook notifications also have sound. I use Messages+ for text and I've gone into the settings to confirm that there's a sound associated with receipt of new messages. I've also changed the sound, but it doesn't work. The phone has Android v10 and is up to date on the Verizon network. All apps are up to date in Google Play. Any help with this will be appreciated
