My phone tells me I have a message, but then won't display the message?

I recently purchased a Droid Mini. Whenever the phone is locked and I get a message, the phone lights up and tells me I have a message, but when I unlock the phone the message is not displayed.

Messages that are delivered while the phone is unlocked display, no problem. Help?

What do you mean by "displayed"?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

caroline20, no worries. We're here to help! Are you using the text messaging application that came on the device or did you download a 3rd party application to your device? Try powering your device off/on and keep us posted.

I had the same problem, until I realized that certain messages (including multi receipient messages) would not appear until I turned on mobile data.  I normally keep mobile data turned off, since I have wifi at home, and several other places I visit.  If I get the notification that there are messages and I don't see them, I simply turn on mobile data and they appear. I hope this is of benefit to you.
