    When my phone screen is turned off or the lock screen on, my phone will not play the notification sound for texts, emails, etc. However if I'm in my phone doing something else, it will. It's REALLY ******* me off how many messages I'm late to read lol.

    This happens on my 1520 and Icon, both of which were hard reset after install.

    So far this is my last show stopper bug to work around on this build!

    For texts if you set a sound per contact it will always play when the message arrives. It's only the global one that's acting up. Luckily there's only a handful of people I need to read their texts ASAP :D

    Except.... none of the alert tones are an option, only actual ringers :(

    Anyone have the Alert 7 sound they can post as a .mp3 so I can drag it into my ringtones folder? LOL!

    Mine is a bit on and off and my loudspeaker has gone very quiet and tinny so I can't play youtube videos very loudly any more.

    I had the same problem here on lumia 1020 no sound on stand by, after changing settings for notifications. I turned all as it was in the beginning and sound appeared again. try turning all options to on in notification setting. it worked for me ;)

    It seems that is better not to change anything in setting for this build to work properly. i had same kind of problem with outlook.

    Hey Dear Friends,

    There are Notification sounds to select from . By Default the Notification sound is "default" which seems to not make any sound.

    1.Go to " Settings"
    2. Select " System " then scroll down to " Notifications & Actions"
    3. Go down to the section " SHOW NOTIFICATIONS FROM THESE APPS"

    This is where you should find all the Apps that you selected to be notified of like Cortana , Messages Facebook Etc...
    Now the names of the Apps are Highlighted right?. Just TAP on the Name of the Highlighted app and this will open up the menu
    to select the Ringtone / Notification sounds that are available.

    Good Luck

    TIP: Make sure you have the App turned "On" and ' Notifications " put slid to the right to " On"

    I have messages in notifications, have it on, but it still does not work. A lot of things seem random, there are transient problems, but core functionality is there and I can use it just fine. I would not mind a new build soon, though.

    Same here. I have to open my messages folder every now and then to check for new messages. One of the basic functions of a phone not working the way it is supposed be is a tad dissapointing.

    i have the 928 on 10166 and get not sound on new email, no sound on new text message.
    i have changed the system sound for text message off of default to something else and have changed it per contact. still no txt message sound or email sound when new items arrive.
    and this is the biggest reason I cannot move to it as daily use yet.

    Seems to be with the reminder banner being present is what I have come up with. I get a calendar reminder and all sounds are gone till I dismiss that. Once I dismiss that, seems like all the sound notifications I misses come thru back to back to back etc till its caught up.

    Hi guys,

    After going through the net trying to find a way to get my SMS/Messaging notification to work and not finding any workable solution, I've decided to go through my all of windows 10 mobile setting once again to see whether there is a way to solve this issue. And yes problem solved (for me anyway). No factory reset and no installing additional app

    I've detailed out all the action i've taken for your reference. This is not a sure fire way to solve the problem and its only work for me and my phone on the 17/1/2016 GMT+8.

    My phone spec was:
    Phone : Nokia Lumia 1020 (Lumia Cyan)
    Os build: 10.0.10586.63

    So here is the detail steps i've taken chronologically in solving my SMS/Messaging notification issue

    Previous Settings related to the issue of "Messaging"

    1. "Notification and actions" under "System"
    I'm guessing my case is similar to everyone, the "Messaging" option is not to be found in the "Show notifications from these apps"

    2. "Lock screen" under "Personalization"
    2.1 My "Choose app to show detailed status" was set to "Whatsapp"
    2.2 As always I've also chosen "Messaging" in the "Choose apps to show quick status"

    3. "Messaging" under "Privacy"
    Chosen option ON for "Let apps read or send messages (text or MMS)".

    4. "Background apps" under "Privacy"
    4.1 "Messaging + Skype" was disabled

    Solving the issue
    1. "Background apps" under "Privacy"
    Turn ON the option

    2. "Lock screen" under "Personalization"
    Change "Choose app to show detailed status" from "Whatsapp" to "Messaging"

    3. "Messaging" under "System"
    Turn ON all option (Yes, I really meant ALL OPTION)

    Then I've restart my phone and asked my wife to send me one short message through the SMS/Messaging app and I've heard the sweet sound of SMS/Messaging and what a beautiful site seeing the message on my phone lock screen. And finally the "Messaging" is shown in the "Notification and actions" (after restarting).

    Then I reverting back a few setting after solving the issue and the SMS/Messaging notification still works

    1. "Lock screen" under "Personalization"
    I've changed it back to "Whatsapp"

    2. "Messaging" under "System"
    Disable all the options under the "SMS/MMS"

    Hope this solution will work for you phone as well.

    Thank you.

    For me what did fixed the issue was to change one simple settings back to default:
    Under System, go to Notification & Actions then enable "Show notifications on the lock screen"

    Just stumbled across this post while searching for a solution, unfortunately none of these tips worked for me but I have sussed it so thought I'd update the thread so anyone else that comes across this in the future has a fighting chance of getting it working.

    There appears to be a bug in the banner notifications on the lock screen. To get the sounds for email working try the following.

    In Outlook -> Settings -> Notifications and make sure the following options are ON.

    • "Show notifications in the action centre"
    • "Show a notification banner"
    • "Play a sound"

    Now go to "All settings" -> System -> Notifications and actions. Locate the email application (there will be one for each email account you have setup on the phone) and switch off the "Show notification banners"

    Now the phone will make a sound when you receive an email.

    Hope this helps someone in the future.

    Thanks, RobC_UK. Your fix worked for me on my new Lumia 950 single SIM unlocked phone. The other fixes posted here didn't work.
