    Unhappy Amazing phone but one fairly inconveniant and odd problem...

    I've only had my rezound for 3 days now and I've noticed that when I recieve texts or any notifications for that matter, 50% of the time I don't actually hear the notification tone/vibration until I wake the phone. I don't know why it's only half the time and the other half It's fine. Also my mom bought this phone the same time as me and she is having the same problem only it seems to be worse on her phone. It rarely goes off as soon as it recieves a text. I've done some research, read some threads and I've noticed others have had this problem as well but no one has presented a successful solution. I'm being told it's some sort of sleep mechanism to preserve battery/data. However, I have unchecked the sleep and fastboot to never. My phone is running high performance. I have background data and sync all checked. I've done a factory reset thinking it may have been a bug. I've tried handcent and SMS pro. And I've probably done other things that I can't think of off the top of my head as I've exhausted myself on this. I love my phone. If I could just fix this one issue..it would be perfect. I really hope it's just a setting I'm missing. And I'm completely open to suggestions

    Also, does anyone know when the ICS update will be coming out for the Rezound? And if maybe it has any chance of fixing this issue givin it's not a phone setting?

    Unfortunately you've gone through most of what everyone would suggest. As far as ICS goes we have a few wonderful leaks but nothing official yet. I'd say drop a Gingerbread ROM on here and watch your problems go away.
    Helpful Rezound Links:

    Did you know: You can upgrade your Rezound to ICS without rooting?

    Fun Rezound Fact: The antennas for the Rezound are in the battery cover.

    Don't forget to backup your flash player install before they remove it from the Android Market.

    If you don't understand something, ask questions.

    I think sometimes, the stars were aligned right when I bought my phone because I've very little problems with the phone. I get all the text message notifications and vibrates. The one problem I have is getting the notification on e-mail when on vibrate. My phone wont vibrate to e-mail, but it will on text messages. I'm using GO SMS, but even before I was using the stock text message app. Do you have the update to the Rezound?
    My phone is now a part of my DNA.

    Hmm, so it seems to be an issue with the majority of the phones as I just bought a replacement today and the phone did the same thing only it seemed to be worse. It's a shame the Rezound is a great phone but I don't think I can deal with this issue as I'm a heavy texter/email user. I need to be notified ASAP for work reasons I'm returning it and buying a Droid Razr Maxx this week. HTC should really look into this issue with their Rezound.

    Anyway, if you're stuck with the phone, I do hope an update comes out to fix this problem soon. Would sure help our conveniance. I just don't have the time to wait

    I've noticed if you leave the message application open you won't receive a notification of new messages. So I always make sure I back out of it when I'm done. That might help some

    I had the exact same problem on my Rezound and I believe I've found a solution that while not permanent does allow me to receive texts without having to turn my phone on. I find that if I let the phone turn itself off with the screen timeout and not by pressing the power button then I get my texts normally with no problems.

    I've since returned the phone for a Razr Maxx. This is however an interesting finding. I know someone else who has the Rezound so I will have to tell them to try it. I wish I knew what was causing this and why there haven't been more complaints. Thanks for sharing
