    when I choose the mic to text, my phone used to make a sound , the same sound as when I receive a text. for some reason that sound has stopped and I want it back. I have turned on all the sound in the settings.

    What device are you using and which keyboard, the stock one, Swype or some other customized one?

    Which settings have you "turned everything on" in?

    I have a tracfone LGL39C. I use the keyboard on the phone, the stock one. In settings, sound I have ringtone, notification, touch feedback and system (I don't even know what that is) volumes set to the max on setting. music is off.

    When did the sound stop and had you added any new apps or possibly upgraded the OS when the problem happened?

    sound stopped after a year of use. I did add two new apps. I will uninstall them to see if it makes a difference.

    I had added a fast food app. Uninstalled it and re boot. I get tone when I receive a text, and a tone when I choose the mic to speak my text. But still no sound when the "speak now" words appear. I guess it is not a big deal. I have dropped the phone a couple of times. Maybe I broke something inside.

    Why don't you try to do hard reset & see the result.

    Do you have any other texting apps installed, like WhatsApp? Maybe there's a conflict between two messaging apps.
