Hello. I am a technical support assistant for a cellular company. And one of our customers had this problem!

Settings > Reset Options> Reset App Prefrences

This should help the problem, if it isn't due to a blown speaker, do not disturb, or volume mute.

Hope this helped !

If you can get messages but just not the notifications, you may have accidentally blocked messages/hangouts from sending notifications. Try going to settings>notifications>app notifs>messages/hangouts/whatever your messaging app is. Then reset all the settings to allow.

Hmm, try go to settings>apps>messages>clear data. Be aware you will lose un backed up messages.
