    Default Text notifications no longer working

    I have a iPhone SE and all of a sudden I don't receive audible or vibration text notifications on my phone. It does pop up on my screen, however. Checked every setting I can think of, but no luck. I do get the notifications on my Apple Watch. Any solutions.

    Not sure about your issue. After updating on iOS 10 beta, some of my alert text tones don't work. I checked one after another and found some that work. No clue.

    Thanks, I just upgraded to v9.3.5. Also did a hard reset, as well as a settings reset. Still having same issue, and sometimes don't get notified when I have emails. Hummmmm. Though Apple products weren't supposed to have these issues

    All computers have issues, regardless of who makes them. Do you hear your Ringtones?

    Have you tried changing the alert text tone in Settings >Sounds?
    Have you checked in messages to see if you have "do not Disturb" on for your contacts?

    Well I finally discovered the problem. It's my Apple Watch. When it is on my wrist, the notifications no longer work on the phone. Geeze, I didn't know that, or wasn't warned about that. Could have prevented lots of resetting, rebooting, re everything, as well as wasting your time Ledsteplin. Thanks for your help.
