***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community! Beginning the evening of Sunday 12/4, both Communities will be placed in read-only mode. You’ll still be able to visit the Communities and browse content, but login will be disabled. On the afternoon of Monday 12/5, all users will be able to log into the new Verizon Community. We expect the new Community to be fully functional the morning of Friday 12/9. Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!
With my Droid Maxx, the incoming text notification doesn't always work. It seems to not play if I'm sitting next to it, but does work if I'm across the room. That could be a coincidence though.

Is there a setting somewhere that could cause this?

Thanks for reaching out Rabbit. We never want you to miss those notifications. What app are you using to receive text messages? Did this start after an application was downloaded? Try powering in safe mode and retest. Here's how: http://vz.to/11ut9b2

I'm just using the text app that comes with the phone and haven't installed many apps on the phone at all.

Thanks for clarifying, Rabbit_of_Caerbannog. Were you able to try the Safe Mode JoeL recommended? Do you happen to have any type of hands free/Bluettoth device connected to your phone that may cause notifications to alert you there instead when in range?
