NOKIA 6120: no alert tone or 'new msg' notification for text msgs

I have a Nokia 6120 classic purchased last July and trouble free until a few days ago. Since Sunday incoming messages have not been accompanied by alert tone or 'new message' screen. The only way I can find messages is by actively going to 'messaging' and checking to see if there is a '+' sign next to 'Inbox'. Bizarrely, the ringing tone operates perfectly for incoming calls and the alert tones sound when accessed via settings -> profiles.

The local '3' shop wasn't much help. Have tried rebooting, taking out and reinserting battery, switching on and off. Software downloads are up to date.

Any ideas / help greatly appreciated!

this happens on my e61. Delete all of the txt msgs in your inbox, sent, and drafts folders. I also take the battery out afterwards, but that never works on its own.

Hey Guys!

My pleasure to help u with this problem which has annoyed me like hell also!!!

Problem appears when u got more than approx. 2000 messages in ur folder.

Only solution: delete some messages and restart ur phone. Probably with a cold reset (take battery out while phone is on).


Seen... it rings again!!!

AWESOME!
