    Message sounds

    ORorodyr asked on December 10, 2015See post history
    My problem is the following: I send and receive many text messages during the day, so I always disable the message notification sounds on my phones. I did this with my newly purchased Lumia 630, too. Problem is, I still get sound notifications if a message arrives while I am inside the messaging app (say, I'm writing a text and I get a text from someone). When I'm not in the messaging app, there is no sound, just vibration, just as I want it. I have disabled sound from the settings (selected "none" from the drop-down menu) for messaging - and then for everything else (thinking that maybe those notifications are part of something else in the system). I tried a reboot, and then a soft reset, the problem is still there. The only workaround so far is to put my phone on vibrate (but then I don't hear it if someone calls) or mute the threads which I use the most (in which case, I don't get notifications).
    Any ideas?

    The only suggestion I can make is to give Microsoft feedback about this situation. I have the same issue on my Lumia 640 running Windows 10.

    There isn't a setting, it's just the way Microsoft made it.
