NO Alerts/vibration from Android Text Messages

I have an updated (ios 11.2.5) iPhone 6.   I've recently narrowed it down that I'm not getting text alerts/vibration from my Android-users only. (I'm getting all other alerts: email, iMessage, news, etc.) The text message doesn't pop up lighting my locked screen either. If I push the home button, I see it's there.


I've tried everything from restarting, toggling iMessage off/on, notification settings, etc. and searched thread after thread with no luck in fixing my issue. DND is off. Silence mode is off. No Apple Watch, but I do have other Apple devices. Not sure if that matters.


Has anyone else had this issue and how did you fix it? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

iPhone 6, iOS 11.2.5, null

I believe I've figured it out just by fooling around with my phone. Although DND is OFF, I've turned on EMERGENCY BYPASS on my Android-friend contacts. I'm now getting alerts/vibration.


Many thanks to those who replied. Hope this helps others.
