How to set tone for text messages on the ZTE Majesty?

I cannot get my text messages to make a sound when i get a text message?




Just got my texting to work. Pressed the small button on right to restart/poweroff/airplane mode. 3 icons below airplane mode. pressed 3rd one "speaker" looking icon and it works now


When I receive messages the numbers won't light up like the rest of my message. How can I fix this?


Exactly the same problem. 45 minutes with offshore customer service, and 40 more with the nice guy at the store and no answer. My phone makes a sound for absolutely everything but texts. Maddening..


Have you checked the app's settings? There may be some notification settings there, check if it is off.


I am actually undergoing the same technical difficulties.
Only my Majesty will ring for incoming calls, will make sounds when I type, and will even vibrate for my notifications. However it will not make a sound to let me know I have notifications, waiting to be responded to.. I've checked every setting that has to do with sounds and notifications, but they all say my volume is at a Max. It is really beginning to get to me. I've downloaded apps, restarted my phone, re-activated my phone, even changed my notifications ringtone and absolutely Nothing.


This is actually odd. Does your phone make a sound or nothing at all? Are you guys sure you're not in silent mode?


Mine still doesn't work I have tried all these suggestions could it be something else. Went to settings an customization even tried to set a download as the sound nothing. It show in the status bar and the phone lights up when a message come in but nothing else.

I restarted my phone and now it sounds when I get a text or face book message.


Restarted the phone! It fixed it.


Having the same issue. I can set the tones through the menus, but it doesn't make the sounds when you get a text, or Facebook update, or email. It's not on vibrate or silent only. And the Text icon on the shortcut bar doesn't show how many texts I have waiting either.
