    Were you using any custom sounds like something on your sdcard?

    Volume is all the way up I assume?

    Can you play, say a YouTube video and it has sound?

    Have you changed the sound within the app you use for SMS?

    Just a thought do you have the volume linked between ringer and notifications? It could be the text notifications are silenced because they were unlinked. Should be in the sounds settings under volume.

    Don't really mean to bump a 3 month old threat but did you ever find a solution for this? I'm having this same issue now. All my other sounds work fine, including my ringtone. I even changed my text notification sound to something my phone came with and still, no luck.

    Edit: Ok. Maybe not. I've been having this issue for days and finally gave up and told it to vibrate when a text came in. Now the sound works fine. Stupid phone....
