My phone does not alert me when I receive text SMS or MMS.  They do show up on my preview, but there is no sound even with the volume turned all the way up.

I experience the same issue. Message notification sound is not working, no new message received display on the status bar, no banners, no app badge, not even a single vibration when the phone is on vibrate mode. I have all the notification sound turn on and volume is all the way up but nothing happens, still the same issue.

I also just started experiencing this issue.  Sound set, but nothing when incoming text.  I have sound for outgoing texts that works.  Notification icon shows in status bar.  Even my smartwatch vibrates as usual.  Just no sound for incoming.
Had to switch to Verizon Messages in order to get a sound alert.

I have the same problem, my phone only vibrates when receiving a text or a call, but the sound is on and notifications are on. The phone works like it is on vibration mode, but it isn't. If I connect my headphones I can hear notifications. After I restart my phone, the sound works for a few days and then again, if I switch from vibration mode to sound mode, the phone works like it's still on vibration mode. I have a Sony Xperia XZ1 with Android 9. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

I like used a similar path. I'm running Android 9 on a Nokia 6.2.
Tap the word "default" but leave the checkbox checked.
A radio button menu with 4 options pops up.
Choose the best option.
Hope this helps someone ;)
