Bring back the individual text tones and notifications on S9


Are you on a S9 and using the stock message app? Cause mine does not say that... the three dots in the thread brings up  an album of pictures I have sent, the recipient that I have sent those pictures to and the voice to add/ remove or block that recipient,  a garbage can on the left,  a grayed out bell and a push pin on the right. 

I cannot believe how much time and effort people are having to put in to something so nice to have and worked fine before we got the new phone.  I know it sounds, again,  like sour grapes. I do really appreciate all the help you guys are offering.  But I am so frustrated.  Maybe I have just gotten to old for this stuff.  Maybe I just need a old fashioned flip phone again. Thanks!

You are in the right spot in messages. You will see all the photos that the two of you sent  just above that is notifications and it will say default, click on default and you should be able to customize it . Hope that helped. 




I don't  see that...waaaah!

Bring back individual message tones for Samsung devices. I don't want everyone to have the same sound. 


Hi! Mine updated yesterday and now I can set custom notification tones in the conversation thread again!  Would prefer it be like before,  where you could set it up through contacts,  but this is better than nothing!  Keep your eyes peeled for that update! 

I cannot believe I actually made a Samsung account just to express my hatred 4 this... Update. It makes no sense, notice how there aren't any likes on the matter. Who would appreciate an update like this? Why did this happen? Who got a parking ticket during street cleaning and took it out on the rest of the world by making it so that every single f**king notification is the same? I generally have my phone on silent and detach myself, which, in a way, is a great thing but also causes missing notifications of importance.. constantly. I feel like I'm I'm going to lose my f**king mind if I hear ANY sound OVER AND OVSD one more *****ing time. This is usually well before 11 a. M. I have tried changing it to a different tone, I have tried to find a notification sound that is peaceful for every notification but that doesn't exist.

MOST OF MY NOTIFICATIONS ARE ALREADY TURNED OFF. Please, for the love of God ..change this. I don't understand why anyone thought this was a good idea. Can anyone explain why they thought this was a good idea? Is there someone out there that only gets 3 notifications a day and they figured, well my life is so boring and meaningless anyway. Why make more than one noise? Please please please change this or I am switching to an iPhone!! The only thing that I actually like about the iPhone is iMessage, besides that I am Samsung all the way and my attempts to persuade people to switching over haven't been successful but I was born to stand out not be part of a crowd and I have many Samsung products that I love and rave about. This just doesn't make any sense, if there is anyone out there in the world other than the developers that find this glitch update to be an improvement please come forward and tell me why. I just want to understand and attempt to maintain my sanity till something changes. Please.


I have researched everything trying to find a solution so please don't mention that getting new apps and changing my entire phone life around for hours is a solution because it just isn't a very good one.
