This is the second Samsung phone I've had and Messages do not give an alert sound when you're INSIDE a text chat and a new message comes into that chat. iPhones give a small audible blip and vibrate which is tremendously helpful if you're in a chat but not always looking at the phone. Am I missing something?
Are you using the latest update for the phone? Check for an update to your messaging app that you use and install that.
It works for me using Samsung Messages app.
I'm using the Samsung Messages app. So you get an audible and vibrating alert when you're texting with someone and that person sends a new text - while the text/chat is open? Like I said this is my 2nd Samsung and I get no audible alert or vibrate.
EXACTLY! What a pain in the a$$!! It's the little things that make a huge difference. I just happen to hate being part of Apple more than I hate using an inferior phone. It's not just the lack of this small but very helpful feature. There are other small annoying ones too.
