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!!!

Unwanted news alerts

Don't text it, it is probably a scam! Call your service provider they can block the incoming messages for you, or There are if you google your handset model, ways to block unwanted messages, also depending on your location/country there are regulated numbers provided by your service provider that will give you a number to forward this message to & they can block the number from contacting you further, sorry without knowing your provider & country I can't advise you further, sorry hope this has been of some use to you..
