No text notifications between iPhones on same plan

My mom and I have iPhones on the same plan. When We text each other we receive no notification. We gets notifications from other people. I recently upgraded to a new iPhone and our plan was ‘updated’.

Are you actually getting each other’s texts?  If so, it’s not an AT&T issue.  How you get notified when a text comes in is a function of the phone itself.  Check the notification settings and the Do Not Disturb settings.  Also if both you and your mother both have iPhones, your messages are likely coming through iMessage, which is thru Apple, not AT&T.  The way to tell is if your text message bubbles are blue instead of green.

Yep. Make sure iMessage is enabled, Send and Receive is set for your phone and/or email address, and that your iCloud is setup properly for your phones. Make sure Notifications is setup as well for your phones.

Under Settings -> Messages, MMS Messaging and Send as SMS should probably be enabled as well.
