When I receive a message it used to alert me

When i received a message in the past it would have alerted me by coming up on the screen with message and who it was from. Now it only comes up with an envelope on the toolbar and i have to go into messages to open it. Maybe be a simple problem but it is driving me nuts!!!

Missing new text message notification and alert sound

SMS alert not working

Check the ff:
-You might have turned your "message alert" off or your phones "volume" off or silent.
-"Vibration" alert is off

Try this:
-Turn the "vibration" on or activate.
-Be sure the phone "volume" is not zero, empty or off.

Notify me if it doesn't work, if it did pls rate this solution...tnx
