Hi, not sure if u got it fixed yet but here is my input, hope it helps

For the text message notification not working on Galaxy S6 or similar. I got a solution from cust. support. Follow these steps in order: go to Apps, Settings, Applications, Application Manager, Messages, click Force Stop, say yes, then click Storage, clear data, go back one step and see Notifications. This should not say blocked. Mine said blocked even though everywhere else they were "on". This fixed the problem. Let me know if it works!

I'm also in the same boat. Haven't been able to put my finger on what the actually problem is
