Look no further help is here BeachGaBulldog. Text message is my main means of communication so I understand how important it is for it to work properly.
Are you using the default messaging app that came on the phone or a 3rd party app? When did the text sound notification stop?
There are couple of locations where the user can check for Notifications.
1. Settings --> Sound -->Default notification sounds --> Select Any
2. Settings --> Sound --> Volumes --> Make sure that Notification volume is HIGH
3. Text Messaging --> Settings ( Bottom right there are 3 dots ) --> Scroll Down to Notifications --> Sound --> Make sure a sound is selected
