Notification sound is set, sound and vibration turned on in the settings. Yet the phone remains silent and does not vibrate when I receive a text message.

Has it worked in the past? Is “do no disturb” turned off? You said that you’ve enabled notification. Is the volume turned up? Have you rebooted?

Do not disturb is off. The phone receives phone calls and rings. The volume is at max. I have rebooted. No effect. Tried safe mode. No Text message notification sound while in safe mode.
