I have a iPhone 4S, IOS 9.3.5. Just recently I received an iMessage, but there was no audible notification when the iPhone was in stand by mode. The only way I knew a message had arrived is when I went to use my iPhone, there was a message on the Display indicating a message was waiting to be viewed. Is there a setting that I need to activate to alert me of a new incoming message when my I iPhone is in Stand by mode?

Sure, you can remove it... I don't have an iPhone is why I haven't replied.

Try These Steps to Fix Missing Text Message Notifications or Sounds
Check if your notifications are stacked together (for iOS 12 and above)
Make sure Deliver Quietly is not turned on for the app (for iOS 12 and above)
Check that your mute switch isn’t on
If you pair with an Apple Watch, notifications often bypassing the phone and go directly to your watch
Look through your contacts and ensure that you have not set their text or ringtone to None–if so, update it to a sound you like
Select a Text Tone or Change your selected text tone
Look at your Date & Time and choose Set Automatically
Change Notification Banners to Persistent
Make sure Do Not Disturb is off
Turn off Bluetooth or check your BT connections
Reset your network

B,

Thanks for responding. I was going to give up because no one was responding and I..thinking I did not provide a clear enough description of my issue. I will try to follow your recommendations as closely as possible, but may need to reply if I am unable to locate where I need to locate the settings you recommend.

My wife's iPhone 6 will often go mute. Not even incoming calls ring. The only solution is to reboot the phone. She is not on the latest system because all this began with iOS11 and wants to see if any nasties pop up on iOS 12 before upgrading.

If you are sure you haven't touched any settings to turn off iMessage notifications a reboot or system reinstall might be in order but before that it is worth running through any message related notification settings and turning them on/off to see if the problem resolves itself.

We don't know exactly why my wife's phones goes mute but a reboot always fixes it. It's hassle but she's in line for a new phone so she is putting up with it.


Also, try the suggestions here:

I think you stated your problem quite well, just sometimes this place is slower than other times.

Your post about deleting actually "bumped" it so it showed as unread post... which sometimes just calling attention to your topic can help.:)

I've abandoned iOS otherwise I'd have chimed in. Anything past iOS 6 I have limited knowledge about.

There's only a few people here still using iOS devices who might have an idea for you, I think that was probably the reason for a slow response. Your description was perfectly understandable I just don't have an answer.
