Can't Get Text Message Notifications to Work

view story

http://forums.androidcentral.com – Hello, Got my phone on Monday and everything works great, but not once have I gotten a notification about receiving a text message. There is no sound, no pop-up, and I don't see the text message Icon anywhere on the screen. Only way I can tell is by opening up the actual message app. I have tried most things so far. Checking and unchecking the notification settings mixed with turning the phone on and off. I have downloaded Handcent SMS and gone through the same series of checks. If I do the test notification in Handcent SMS it works just fine, but when an actual text message comes (HowTos)
