For some reason the phone stopped showing notifications (vibrate,sound).  The text message symbol pops up quietly.
Tried to Clear Data in messaging, force stop, disable/enable Show Notifications, reboot phone.  No luck.  
Any ideas?

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Model: LG-E980
Baseband
Android version 4.1.2
Software E98010k

Same.  Vibrates but no sound.  Default sound enabled.

So, some progress. You have vibrations.

The call alert works? Trying to see if it's a sound problem or a notification problem.

Can you try to change the default sound in handcent? Maybe with something you uploaded? There is a remote possibility that the default sounds are corrupted.
