ATT Messages will not wake phone


ATT Messages will not wake phone

I'm stuck trying to figure out how to have any inbound SMS on ATT Messages app wake my Samsung S4 upon receipt.  I can see the little orange bubble in the notification status bar after waking the phone, but nothing until then.  I could have sworn that when I used Handcent, it would show me the message on the black screen for a moment.  Yes, I have the enable notifications option checked.  Any suggestions...?
