Bring back the individual text tones and notifications on S9

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 didn't expect them to.  However, since this is an authorized Samsung site and is monitored by authorized Samsung employees who have taken it upon themselves to censure my posts by deleting some of them complaining about this feature vanishing with no acceptable explaining, I quit this forum. Y'all have fun .

I definitely agree a phone is not a phone if you can not customize text tones for each individual contact

I found a solution.
If you're going crazy because your phone notifies you of EVERYTHING with the same exact tone... Go to your SETTINGS . ACCESSIBILITY . NOTIFICATIONS . SWITCH TO OFF.

I was more angry about the fact that we are unable to CHANGE OUR NOTIFICATION SOUNDS.
our Gmail, our Evernote, our Instagram and our text Notifications to Notifications that are different from each other. Make sense?

Our fliphones were able to assign ringtones and individual text sounds, though. Just saying. Samsung can you hear me?!

Just found an easy solution and am now able to customize individual contact text notifications...go into your text conversation with the person you want to change tones. In the top right corner press the three dots. Turn "on" the custom notification button then touch in the larger white box that actually states "custom notification".  Then choose "sound". Here, you can choose a different sound for that person. Back out if this menu and that individuals sound is saved.
