Messages only alert when received 1/4 of the time and do not appear in lock screen even though the ability to see them is turned on

I'm not notified at all 3/4 of the time that I have received a text message. How do I fix this?

Hey M0904,
I found the following information regarding troubleshooting notifications, I'd run through them and see if they resolve the issue:
iOS: Understanding Notifications
http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3576
Troubleshooting notifications
Push notifications require an active Wi-Fi or cellular connection. If you are not receiving notifications for a specific app, try these steps:
Verify that the app supports notifications.
After installing an app or restoring a backup to a different iOS device, open the app at least once to begin receiving notifications.
If the app requires entering or logging in to an account, you will need to do this before receiving notifications.
Check Settings > Notifications to ensure that the app is configured for notifications.
If notifications do not appear only in the Notification Center, verify that the Notification Center setting for the app is enabled.
If you are still unable to receive notifications and you are using a Wi-Fi connection, verify that the network or firewall is not blocking access to port 5223.
Have a good one,
David

    only way is to restore the phone as new.  OR wait until IOS 7 comes out in the fall.

    What iPhone do you have? You can check in settings>>general>> about.
    If you have a 3G you cannot update beyond iOS 4.2.1. The 3G is over 4 years old an was discontinued over 2 1/2 years ago. You need the latest ios to run the latest versions of some apps. If you have a 3GS you can update.
    If your phone is not responding, reset it by pressing and holding down both the home button ad lock/ sleep button simultaneously until the Apple logo appears.

  • Airport extreme will only get or send e-mail messages, or allow Safari to function for about 5 minutes.  After that it doesn't respond even though the green light is on and diagnostics says there is nothing wrong. Have to unplug again to get a response.

    For the past 2 days Airport Extreme works for about 5 minutes and then will not receive or send e-mail messages, or let Safari work.  The only way I can send or receive is to unplug Airport Extreme for a few seconds, reconnect and then work frantically for 5 minutes before it does the same thing.  The green light stays on and the diagnostics tells me nothing is wrong even though no mail is moving.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks,

  • New computer has been loaded with old Itunes library but a number of earlier purchases say they are not "authorized" on this computer even though the bulk of my library works-- this is only about 5% of the total but were all purchased 9/18/2008 or before?

    New computer has been loaded with old Itunes library but a number of purchases prior to 9/18/08 are not "authorized" when I try to play them.
    They are all items I purchased from Itunes but they won't play any longer even though they show in my Itunes library.
    Doesn't work when I enter account info and password either.
    This is only about 5% of my library and many purchased items play no problem.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Two words, Migration Assistant. It will transfer files between two Macs using a firewire cable automagically.

    Three words, Target Disk Mode. Use a firewire cable to connect two Macs and then hold down the T key when you boot the Mac you want to transfer files from, G4 Tower. It will appear as a hard drive on the desktop of your Macbook Pro. Then you can just drag and drop the whole folder.

  • How can I set up my Mac Pro so that my wife and I can use our separate iTunes accounts? I keep getting an error message that the computer is already associated with an Apple ID even though the two accounts are associated with separate log ins!

    I'm getting very confused with setting up multiple user accounts on my Mac Pro for my wife and I. We each have a separate iTunes account, and we want to keep our music libraries seaprate. I've set up two user accounts on the Mac Pro and I have my iTunes authorised and logged into my user account on my user account. Under my wifes user account (i.e. a separate log in on the computer) I'm trying to set up her iTunes account, but I can't download or play anything from the cloud - it just says "This computer is already associated with another iTunes Account" and tells me that if I 'transfer' then I won't be able to use the other one for 90 days! This is really annoying as my wife can't access music she has purchased on her iTunes account on the home machine. We're not trying to do anything dodgy, just access our music on our own accounts on separate log ins on the same machine. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

    Hi Allan, thanks for that. I've already set up a log in for my wife and that is all working fine. The problem is that when she logs in and opens iTunes and trys to associate her library with her iTunes account she gets the error message "This computer is already associated with another iTunes account". Whilst this is true, the computer is associated with my iTunes account under my separate log in, which should have nothing to do with hers. If she transfers the association to her account it will lock me out of my content on my log in for 90 days - I'm trying to work out how to associate each of the log in accounts with a separate iTunes account so we can access our music independently of one another without locking each other out. Hope that makes sense!

    I bought an iPhone 4S at a supplier who uses Talkmobile. When I switched to GiffGaff and asked the Talkmobile people to port my number and the code which they gave me, they told me my iPhone was never locked and did not need to be unlocked. Now my GiffGaff seems to be up and running and my husband can even leave new voicemail messages but I cannot access my phone. Everytime I put the SIM in it says it's not a valid SIM and that I need a supported carrier SIM. To me that sounds like the phone is locked.

    My husband (who set this up) is going over to Carphone Warehouse right now. He seemed to think that it was locked. But when we asked the carrier we picked, they said it was not locked so they could not unlock it. 
    Are all of you answering these questions familiar with the UK carriers? I am from the US but this was bought and serviced in the UK--nothing to do with the US.
    Maybe the vendor who sold the phone can/will unlock it for us no problem. I guess I will know in the next 5-6 hours. I have just been without a phone for almost an entire day now and it's very frustrating and I thought someone might have had this exact problem and could answer the question for me outright.
    Thanks for everyone's help. Sorry to take up your time.

  • I have a Macbook pro thats prints fine to my HP printer, but when I try and print from my iMac it doesnt see the pages and just prints two blank pages. Even thou the document is a number of pages

    I have a HP Officejet Pro 8500A and I had no problems printing to it from my Mac or Macbook pro. The macbook is wifi and the Mac is cable, I have recently had the printer replaced with an exact model. Since doing that I can only print from the macbook pro, when I try and print from teh mac it doesnt see the pages. It could be a 10 page document and it will just show two blank pages. I have googled the question and have tried deleating the printer and reinstalling without any luck. When I got the new printer I insalled all the latest drivers thats the only thing different.
    Could you please help
    Michelle

    Right click the printer in System Prefences -  Print & Scan and use Reset Printing System... and then reinstall the printer, should take less than 5 minutes. Here is a photo showing how to Reset Printing System....

  • Image stabilization only works half the time and is not consistent

    When I access image stabilization, apply, and render it. Only sometimes will it work. Help.

    daveypr
    It looks like you have come up with the answer to your particular situation. Great.
    But, so that your experience can be of benefit to those finding your thread
    a. What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?
    b. How were you not applying the video stabilizer to the whole video clip in the first place? Or, are you suggesting
    that others apply the video stabilizer to all the clips on the Timeline instead of one video clip that may really need that effect?
    Thanks.

  • The light on the powercord for my macbook no longer goes on when I attach it to the laptop and does not appear to be charging the computer.  Is it the cord or the computer that is the problem?

    The light on my powercord no longer lights up when I attach it to the macbook and the macbook shows that it is not being recharged.  Is it the cord or the attachment on the computer? Is there a way to fix it so that I don't have to buy a new computer?

    Hopefully, and more than likely, your magsafe charger has failed. Inspect the cord  near the bending points for cable strain, that's common. This oage may also give you some guidance http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1713

  • Why are certain Gmail messages and conversations not appearing in Firefox 4 (I get the left sidebar, top bar, but message fails to appear), but functions fine in all other browsers?

    Certain messages in Gmail are not displaying properly (http://img607.imageshack.us/i/screenshot20110228at101.png/). These messages appear properly in all other browsers (including previous versions of Firefox), and also appear when I disable all labs. Disabling Right Side Chat labs appears to enable display of the message, but destroys all formatting (page stretches to the right beyond viewable resolutions, line breaks disappear), and so on.

    Thank you for your prompt email.
    I have thoroughly checked and double-checked all the factors below.
    On two different computers. Unfortunately, nothing has helped yet.
    I can assure you that each item listed below has been checked several times during all my searching today and ALSO again right now.
    There are no problems with Plugins, Themes or Extensions found. No permissions blocked, No media blocked images, No third-party permissions blocked. No images blocked from any domains. And images are 'Enabled'. There are no exceptions in place to the loading images. No exclusions in my security software settings.
    AND I have checked all of this on a second computer that is also having this same problem. That person is using a different security software than I am but they are having the same problem with images in only their Gmail account also - but NOT when using IE9. Only when signing in through Firefox. And we both think it started yesterday or this morning.
    That pc is still on Firefox version 12.0. I updated earlier today to version 13.0 but the problem is still ongoing for both of us.
    Any further help will be greatly appreciated.
    I have to get something accomplished. WAY behind now.
    Thank you,
    ElaineB.

  • What do I do when I want to create an Apple ID if I dont have any method of payment? The 'none' option does not appear beside other payment methods in the 'Review Payment Information' page.

    I would really appreciate it if someone would solve my problem..

    Hey GP 96,
    Thanks for the question. The following article may address your question:
    Why can’t I select None when I edit my payment information?
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS5366
    If you want to select None and remove the payment information or credit card from your account, follow these steps.
    Using an existing iTunes Store or App Store account
    If you have an unpaid balance or payment due, you can't select None as your payment type. To see which order you need to pay for, view your purchase history. When you sign in to the store, you may see a message that there was a billing issue with your last order. Click the Billing Info button to see the order.
    After you pay for the order, you can change your payment information to None.
    Creating a new iTunes Store or App Store account
    When you create a new store account or sign in with an existing Apple ID (that you haven't used in the store), you must provide a payment method. If you want to remove the payment method after you create the account, you can change your payment information to None.
    If you want to create an account with a new Apple ID, follow these steps to create an account without a credit card.
    Thanks,
    Matt M.

    well perhaps you need to select menu bar as well as mail toolbar, and do it while in the compose window.
