Surface Pro 7 deal! Save big at Amazon right now

    So I'm rocking a Lumia 640 and for the past week or so I've stopped getting audible notifications. No notifications for text messages, reddit (baconit and read it), kik messenger, fb messenger, and outlook.

    I have no idea what's going on or why this is happening. Icons appear and change number-count on the glance screen and the action center, but the screen never comes on, and no sound plays.

    Ideas?

    No sir. Further more if the phone is i use, I've discovered I am properly notified. But if the screen is off, no sounds. Just quietly puts it on-screen

    I had the same, even phone calls wouldn't make a peep. Lumia 1520 on w10m preview. For me a forced reboot (hold power and volume down until bzzzt) fixed it. Or at least live tile notifications show again, I have yet to hear a sound. Will report back if it's truly fixed.

    Edit: yep, it's making sound again as well.

    Settings -> Notifications & Actions -> "Show notifications on the lock screen"

    Somehow got turned off. I have no idea, how and I feel like the biggest ***** for not noticing.

    Does it get turned off if you add a PIN to your phone? That's the only change I recently made that I can think of.... Or Apps Corner. I turned that on too.
