S9 Text message ringtone

Observer

I just got home with my $800 phone.  The FIRST thing I wanted to do was to set up my contact text and ringtones.  To find out that you cannot assign a text tone for individuals is UNACCEPTABLE!!!  I used this all the time with my Samsung S7Edge.  If this doesn't get fixed, I think I will return the phone.  This is VERY unimpressive!

Observer

When I am at clients, driving, etc, the individual text tones will let me know if I need to look at my phone, or can wait.  For instance, if the text tone is that of either of my sons, my husband, my mom, etc. I will look at the phone right away in case of emergency.

Not talking about ringtone for calls....talking about text tones.

At this moment Samsung have to plans to rectify this issue. There is an android SMS app that allows individual text sounds, but Textra is by far the best. *Plus my S8 would only let you use the default Samsung sounds, but there is a way to add sounds of your choice. The way I did it was to install a 3rd party SMS tones app, apply the sounds of each of the ones that you want. Then find them in 'my files' and transfer them to the media folder in 'internal storage'. These will now be added to your default sounds list. Note, in media folder you may need to create folders foe notifications and/or Ringtones (Ringtones are not affected here, just SMS) For video help on this, and much more, check out 'Jimmy is Promo' on YouTube. hope this helps...Freddie

Thank you for getting back to the thread. I believe that we feel that these phones are too expensive to be told to find this option on a 3rd party app. My s7 was completely able to individualize tones without a problem. I find that being able to differentiate messages from friends and family adds to the comfort of having a smart phone. Loyal Samsung customers are feeling belittled that this problem has been voiced for some time and yet still ignored. Please fix this. Don't lose valuable customers.

Hi all. 

 

As a direct result of the feedback you guys have given here, the individual contact text message ringtone feature will be returning in a future update! :robothappy:

 

We're unable to give a timescale for this, but definitely look out for it in future software updates coming your way.

 

Thank you all for your contributions towards this! :robothappy::heart:

 

Edit: Also, please check out the workarounds given by Tangoman65 and AndroidGuru.

Amazing!!!!! Thank god for that. I will cancel my order of the Huawei p20 then! I was leaving Samsung for good due to the fact they just didn't seem to listen. I'd spent months in the beta programme voicing my concerns over this going and was ignored every time. At last we are being noticed. Thank God!!!!!

Great.. Please also work on bringing back "swipe right to call" in the text message application. And options to change backgrounds in message.

Unfortunately there is no timescale on this. Just to keep us all still with Samsung
