LG Ally - text notification

Why isn't my phone using my ringtone when I receive a new text?  It does sometimes, then just doesn't after a while.  I've found that I have to turn off my phone & turn it back on again for the sound to work again.  Fortunately, I have it on vibrate also, so at least I am notified.  But this is really bugging me.  Help!

We're aware of this issue happening with Android 2.1 on some of the Allys....  We are working on an update that should help address this issue... I or one of the Verizon Reps will update everyone as soon as there is any news.  In the mean time I have a question...  Are you using notification tones from your memory card or from the Ally it's self?

With the phone powered up, Pull the Battery and wait a minute then replace it and power back up. Go to Settings-Sound & Display settings-Notification ringtone- Set your default notification ringtone go to the drop down select  "Complete action using"- "select music" and "current ringtone" make sure shows the ringtone selected for notifications.

Try going to: Settings, then ringer volume, there is a slide bar to turn it up or down and another bar below that is for notification volume. In between the two bars is a box that needs to have a check mark in it for "use incoming call volume for notification. Put a check mark there and see if it will ring.
