@Adem0: If you have different options set up for each SIM, with calls on one and texts on another for instance, then this feature is useful to differentiate between the two SIMs when notifications come through, as well as allowing you to set individual notification sounds to the network features on each SIM.

@Adem0 , Maybe best to give another real-world scenario to show how it could be used. :thinking-face:

 

So let's say, for example, you have partitioned areas on the phone for both personal and work, along with one SIM for personal and one SIM for work.

 

It may be that something in your work partition and associated SIM has an urgent update. Maybe an app, maybe a network feature like Wi-Fi calling etc.

 

And you want to be able to easily and quickly tell if any particular notification (phone, SMS, app, System etc.) is from the 'personal' or 'work' part, so that you know how fast you should take action, and whereabouts you need to go to on the phone to do it. 

 

Being able to set different tones per SIM is kinda useful for that.

I'm sorry but I can't really understand it perfectly, could you give an example. :smiling-face:

Also, you can set up notifications sounds for SMS inside the messages app.

What do you mean by the "network features"?

It makes perfect sense as to why indiviual notifications can be set per sim.

 

I have 2 different sims, 2 different usages... I know which sim is ringing or getting a notification by the tone.

 

If you want the same tone on each sim, just set it up that way.. Not everyone is you and others want the option. I had a previous device that only used 1 tone and it was a source of many complaints. It affects you none if you want the same tone.

OK, chill I've just asked.
What do you need notification sounds to be different tho in the 2 SIM cards? Could you please give me an example? :smiling-face:

Did you read what I wrote at all, before asking me for an example? Hint: My example is right above   Try rereading my post again, this time using reading comprehension. I gave you a perfect reason and example already.

 

Very simply if you don't like different tones, just use the same tone. It's a set it and forget it situation anyhow.

 

Before telling others to chill, I think one should have grasp of things and not just complaining about everything under the sun on a daily basis.

Again, please chill, I've asked for the general system notification sound for both SIMS, not ringtone sound , what's the use of changing notifications for all apps in the general for separate SIMS?

Once again, my example is the same for both ringtone and notification sound. Of which I have 2 different tones on both ringtone and notification..... Why do I do that? So I know which sim it is without even looking at the phone. I can decide by the tone that is going off on whether or not I wish to even look at it. I can also tell where the person is calling from as one is a U.S. Sim and the other a U.K Sim.

 

Is that a detailed enough explanation for Your Highness?

 

Seriously, you don't make any sense in about 75% of your postings. They're nothing but complainaing about goofy stuff.  How about complaining about the poor network coding, the poor rollouts of updates and when they do update they end up breaking 2 other things. That I could get behind, but all you do is seem to post to whine not even understanding what you're complaining about most of the time.

But you didn't give me an example for the system notifications sounds: Screenshot_20200606-234702_Settings.jpg

 

I understand different ringtone and SMS, but why would you change whole system's notifications? Do you have multiple apps?
