    Sounds like you probably have a ring tone set for the system alert. The system alert will play (for however long the sound file runs). The default system alert is a very short sound, so it only plays briefly.

    Run the Messaging app, downswipe on the top left menu, and make sure the second setting (Alert) is set to System Sound.

    But it works fine when someone is calling?

    EDIT.. So, do you want a long notification when you get an SMS?

    I believe there is a patch so you can get a repeat notification if you want one.

    as these folks said, for notifications it is only as long as the single playing of the notification file that is set.

    Ok... after doing some testing... that is the way the messaging app notification works. It only plays a short notification regardless how long the actual selected notification tone is.

    I am pretty sure that is why they added the "short" version of the default ringtones.

    So, it sounds like your phone is operating as designed.

    That's right I forgot about that rich, it does cut off longer tones, forgot I had a long tone for a while that the end would get cut off.

    I have a custom ringtone set in messaging, but it is a short one. However for the purpose of checking out your problem, I went and changed my message alert in the messaging app to a full music ringtone (30 seconds long at least). Then when I received a txt it only played for about four seconds and cut off.
