Playbook and Torch Text Message and BBM Notification Failure

I just purchased a 32 gig playbook and it's sync with my Torch 9800 went beautifully.

All functionality worked perfectly.


Today, however, when I get a text message or BBM, the playbook no longer plays a sound to notify.

The Torch notifies me of the message/BBM and they both appear on the playbook, however, there is no sound on the playbook to let me know it received a message.


It should also be pointed out that if I receive an email message, the playbook does notify me with a sound.


Any suggestions?


Thanking you in advance.
