I just got this phone yesterday and it already is giving me problems. It doesnt notify me when I recieve a text message the little mail icon pops up by the battery but it doesnt ring or the view now or later thing doesnt pop up.
Theres no settings that you can go into and just click check on to get notifications. I went through everything.
