I have to use an app to set a ringtone for text messages.It might be the same for you.I've used the app called Ringo Lite.

I had the same problem. It appears it is a software issue and we will have to wait for an update. In the mean time, someone on here suggested that you turn the phone off and back on again whenever this happens and it will fix it for a while. Has worked for me so far.

I can confirm that the Ally will randomly drop the notification tone from sounding. Had it happen today. Restarted the phone, and it worked again.

I was having the same problem, too. I hope that issue gets fixed soon. I did turn off my phone and turn it back on and it started working again.
