My Rumor has stopped alerting me to messages. It will not alert me to text, vm, or picture mail. I have updated alert type in settings and this has not worked. How do I fix it to alert me to new messages?

Mine does work after all. You can't make it vibrate but it will make a sound every five minutes after a missed call/text. The only problem is that the audible sound isn't very loud and I see no way of increasing the volume for it. I just assumed it didn't work because apparently it was too low for me to hear at the time. BUT IT'S BETTER THAN NOTHING!!! I'm just glad it works. Make sure your message reminder is set to "ON". Go to --->TOOLS & SETTINGS>SETTINGS>MESSAGING>MESSAGE SOUNDS>MESSAGE REMINDER> CHOOSE ON OR OFF. To test it.. Send a text to your phone but don't acknowledge or touch any buttons. Wait 5 minutes and your phone should make an alert noise. Keep the phone near you the whole time so you don't miss it. It will continue to alert you every 5 minutes until you acknowledge it.
Open messages in your mobile after menu- messages and in messages open INBOX- click on the alert message , in the options you will find delete on it , scroll down , select and delete.
repeat for the other alerts

To hear an alert when you receive a new message: 1. Press Menu > Settings/Tools > Settings > Messaging > Message Reminder. 2. Select On or Off and press .
Hope this helps, let me know if I can do anything else for you. Don’t forget to rate me or leave a short not. I appreciate it. Thanks. JimmyC
You CAN set a song as your text alert tone. Here are the steps: 1- Go to: Settings> Profiles> 2- Select your options (e.g. normal, vibrate and ring, etc....) 3- select Options> Customize (2)> 4- Highlight "Message Sound" and select Options> Customize (2), 5- Then browse to the folder your song or sound is in (e.g. audio) and select the file you want to use and save it.
I noticed that the songs have to be under 30 seconds to use as any type of alert tone for calls or texts.
I think that there is just a generic message alert tone setting applies for both vm and text. If your voicemail alert tone and message alert tones are the same, this is probably the case. I have searched the menu on my phone and haven't found any setting to change vm tone specifically.
