Hi

I've just got the Samsung A40 and I just can't seem to get lock screen notifications to work for Messenger. I'm having to wake phone up to check if I've had messages, is there a solution?

Thanks

you won't be able to get any notifications on the A40, Samsung have taken, always on display, off the A40. if I'd of knew this before buying the phone, I wouldn't of brought it. disgraceful.

Hey @Cas77! Is this happening with the notifications of any app or only with the Messenger app? Also, make sure to allow notifications for the Messenger app via: Settings > Notifications > Allow notifications for Messenger.

Hi,

I have the same issue, i.e. only with Messenger.

I set Settings > Notifications > Allow notifications for Messenger, but it didn't help.

Messenger didn't work with Glimpse Notifications either. Does lock screen notification work for Messenger at all?

Thanks!

Wish I'd known this myself before I got it. Going through settings has been driving me crazy! Thank you for letting me know, appreciate it.

Hi. I've just found out the phone doesn't allow lock screen notifications for messenger despite what Samsung told me.

 

I tried everything like you. No lock screen doesn't work for messenger at all, very annoying.
