    Hello and welcome...

    Which SMS app are you using - stock or a 3rd party...

    Do you possibly have a task killer installed? If so, you might make sure that you do not have this SMS app set to auto kill...

    Lastly, if it is 3rd party app, try to uninstall / reinstall or do a battery pull/restart to see if that helps...

    Try everything smalltowngirl suggests. That will be the best way to find out what might be going on.

    Did you uninstall the app SMS eraser? Last option is a "factory reset" which would restore everything to factory and you start over...

    That will be one of their "troubleshoot" ideas as well...

    Try switching to another SMS replacement app - Handcent, Chomp, etc and disabling all notifications in stock to see if you receive notifications...might doublecheck that you have your notifications checked in stock as well (if you don't want to try a replacement app)...

    Open the stock SMS app and press the hard menu key, settings and make sure your notifications are checked there...
