Re: updated to ics on Galaxy S2 and now no notification sounds

I have the same issue, no notification sounds or vibration. They do show in the notification bar and the phone lights up, just no sound/vibration alerts. 

 

I've tried setting and resetting them specifically in the applications, still nothing.

 

Any thoughts?

I'm having the same issue. Have to restart my phone several times a day to get my notifications working again.

Just reporting back that I have found no resolution yet. As mentioned above, restarting fixes the notifications for an undetermined amount of time, then they go missing again.

Re: updated to ics on Galaxy S2 and now no notification sounds

I did the update last week.  The problem I had was that when a notification (text, facebook, twitter) came in, sometimes the phone alerted with the ringtone and sometimes it came in silent.  Samsung said that they could fix it in 6 business days.  I did a factory reset and ATT sent 5 ota programs to install on the phone.  No luck.  Today the ATT warranty center downgraded to the old operating system (gingerbread?).  So we will see what happens.  I don't think I will try the upgrade again.  I guess the new software will have to come with a new phone.

ATT warranty center downgraded? What does that mean? 

 

I sure hope they become aware of the issue soon.

It means they will flash the previous version that was on the phone before you did the upgrade using your pc.

I have the same problem with my Galaxy S2 after the updat...

I have the same problem with my Galaxy S2 after the update. The phone just will not notify me of anything and it is really annoying. I have tried everything but luckily AT&T is nice enough to send me out a new phone. I hope that the new one works with the update because I enjoy all of the other features

Mine won't vibrate upon reciept of a text or e-mail either after ICS either.

 

Some other boards have said to open Messaging, hit the Menu button and select settings, and Vibration is at the bottom, but that setting does not exist on my phone.

Since ATT downgraded my phone to the gingerbread, I have no problems with the notifications.  I would recommed that you have ATT downgrade you phone to the previous operating system.
