Question about straighttalk.com
All other sounds work including ringer and alarm. When I get a text, it shows up on my screen, but theres no sound alert, even though I have the tone set for it.
I just bought the phone today and even called Straight Talk about it and they put me through all the steps to set it up ( text message alerts) and ~ you guessed it!~ same stuff I'd already done and no results.
If I'd known about this problem I'd have never bought the phone. For people who communicate a lot via texts, this is a major drawback as others have said. Who wants to spend their entire day constantly having to look at the phone to see if any SILENT messages have arrived? It would be o.k. if you had Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and didn't mind but for normal people it's a royal pain in the you know what!

Seems this problem is only with the straight talk version of the S380C, I had a Net10 version before this and the message alert worked perfectly on the one, same with the tracfone version, so I'm inclined to think its in the programming, as my new straight talk one will not alert me, even with the setting properly done

No solution but just another complaint to add. My phone also does not vibrate or make a sound on texts. I did notice that while I have headphones plugged into the phone and listen to music then it sometimes will vibrate for a text. So stupid. Royal pain.
