Hi, still finding my way round the community board. Apologies if I'm in the wrong place now & being a prat!
Techno dinosaur, first switched to 02 for better signal after years of a rubbish one with Three. Then changed my several years old mobile for Samsung Galaxy A41. Sadly it didn't come with the loan of a 6 year old child for 2 hours to set it all up for me.
Some WEEKS later I think I've pretty much sorted out what I want from what I don't, FINALLY comfortable with it, but it's been hard work, the phone being smarter than me.
Just this last little niggle, I've noticed that when I'm back & forth texting with someone, a text 'conversation' stream is best way to describe it, our chit chat, back & forth. I don't get any notification with each of their responses, only on their first response. It's as if the phone set up thinks I'm sitting there staring at it. I keep missing their 'final' response because I've put my phone away, only noticing it later. I don't even get the 10 minute 'reminder' I have set up for incoming texts, to tell me I haven't opened the last response.
I hope this makes sense, I've searched the internet but can't seem to find out if it should be notifying me for every response.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks Jonsie - I do leave the message app 'open', chat back & forth & just dump the phone in my bag when I assume I've had the last word!
I think your explanation is correct, how a logical it sounds. I don't leave any app I've used open - I just never viewed the text messaging as an app that I should close after I think I've finished. To me finishing a text conversation is shutting my phone case
Thank you for having the patience to suggest the solution. Much appreciated.
