    How do you set your iphone so that when you get a message, it will give you an alert sound when someone sends you a txt?

    thanks,

    Go into your Settings, and then go into Sounds and go into Text Tone and choose an alert sound.

    Is the volume turned up to an audible level? Do you have the mute button switched on? Are you using the default messaging app or a 3rd party messaging app? Are you jailbroken? The steps given by Tony the Tiger should have worked for you.

    Last time I saw this asked it was the mute button. Otherwise in your Settings - Sounds is the "Ringer and Alerts" volume turned up? Also try changing the tone you may have a silent one selected.
