Audible [text] Messages notifications on iPhone worked on AT&T but don't work after recently switching to Verizon.  Nothing else was changed.  Using iPhone X on iOS 13.4.1.   Messages are configured for audible alerts in Notifications and a sound selected.  The Text Tone is selected in Sounds & Haptics.  The phone is not in Do Not Disturb mode.  The iPhone volume is set to max.

Mine does similar.  However, sounds/notification are sporadic (mostly not working) but they work almost always IF/WHEN I turn off my Bluetooth.  But I need it on Bluetooth more for wireless/hands free when driving.  Is this a Verizon issue or an Apple iPhone X issue?

I understand this feature is important for you, CARBOG79. Let's look into this further and see what is causing this problem. Is the software up to date on this device? Are you using the Do Not Disturb feature? https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204321#:~:text=Go%20to%20Settings%20%3E%20Do%20Not,manually%20or%2...

Software is up to date and Do not disturb is off.  All the settings are right.  It only happens when the Bluetooth is activated/turned on.

CARBOG79,

 

The more details we have the better. Thank you so much for confirming. When these alerts would come in, is the phone actively connected to a Bluetooth device? If so, what device?
