Steps

  1. 1
    To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on top of the phone.
    Once the phone is activated we will see the lock screen. This is where we will see notifications. There will be white bars notifying us. We can turn this option on or off, and that's what we're going to show you right now.

    Scroll down to the bottom so that we're in the "NOTIFICATION" section, then tap on "When device is locked" with the current setting under it.
    Press down on it to see the two options. We can't really edit it which notifications we will receive when the device is locked, it's either all or nothing.
