Hi,

I was wondering if anyone might be able to help me. I have an iPhone 4 with ios5. I don't receive any notifications for new incoming messages at all when I receive them from my friends. Thus, I missed them all. I know I need to get into messages every now and then to check if I received new messages but it'd be very helpful if it can just pop something on the screen and say "you have new messages".

So I went to settings to check if I have notifications enabled and found that everything was ON. I wonder what else I need to do to make this work. Do I need additional apps just to do this or something?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Have you tried a hard reset?

Hold the sleep/wake button and the home button, until the phone shuts off and a silver apple logo appears.
Try that and see if it helps.

And you do have the banner setting to "ON" correct? That will give you the pop up on your screen.

General>Notifications>Messages>View in Lock Screen "ON"
