I don't get alerts or notifications each time I receive a text message on my nokia 5530. so I have to constantly check my inbox manually whether there are any new messages. It was working just fine a few days ago. And a lot of others are facing this problem as well. Appreciate your help. Thank you!

Hello there!

You have to go to profiles>general. When you click on General, you will get 2 options, Activate and Personalize. Select on Personalize, from there you may select to change your message alert tone and ringtone and so fort.

    How its possible? that is the way on how to change your ringtones or alerts. If its not working at all, you have to visit a Nokia Care Center to know if any problem in the hardware.

    I'VE FOUND THE ANSWER! Go to messages, click on options and then settings. Then click on others. You should see your messages saved under 'C:". Change it to 'E:', and then change it back to 'C:', sort of like a refresh! it works!
