No Message notifications on phone when connected to watch

Views: 286 Replies: 2
Before the latest iOS and watch updates (9.3.1 and 2.2), my notifications would come through perfectly as I had them setup for my Messages. I set it where my phone would still vibrate/chime with an alert (when not on silent), while pushing the message to my watch, but not appear on my phone's home screen.

Now I get no audible/vibration alert at all on my phone, only the alert on my watch. I have tried numerous things. Turned Message notifications off/back on, switched to "Custom" on watch, then back to "Mirror iPhone," and finally, unpaired my watch, and then paired it back again. It makes it appear as if all my phone's Messages notifications are set to DND.

The strange part is that it only affects Messages, but not other app notifications, as they all appear normally on my phone. When I turn off Bluetooth, disconnecting my watch, the audio/vibrating notifications return as they should be, so I know it is definitely watch related.

Anyone else having this issue? Any tips of something I haven't already tried?

I did what you suggested exactly, and it exhibits the same behavior in less than 12 hours.
