I am somewhat regretting getting the S9 because I can't complete the simple task of setting individual text tones for my contacts. I also hate that it sounds like I have a text when an email comes in or any other notification that isn't a text since apparently separate apps aren't allowed to have different notification sounds. Please, just put it back to how you had it before Samsung!
I have YouTube ways of changing the text / email notifications an it's not possibly. I can't believe my s6 had all the features an this " new phone" doesn't. I am not satisfied with this phone at all. Fingers crossed they fix it with a update!!!
i completely agree. Such a simple feature many of us loved to use. What purpose is it to take it away. It seems like such a simple patch and yet no update yet. I don't really want to use a 3rd party app. It's actually one reason I left apple. but now I kinda regret it
So definitely no way to set up a personalized text tone for a contact, which stinks; however, it is possible to differentiate a text tone from all other notifications.
Choose your general notifications tone under 'Sounds and Vibration'.
Then under 'Notifications' scroll down and select 'Messages'. From there, select 'New Messages' and make changes under 'Sound'.
Now your general notification tone will be different from your text tone. Hope this helped!
