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 .
if you go to messaging
choose individual person
press 3 dots
turn on custom notifications
make sure you have put the required sounds in your notifications folder
When this thread was started....over a year ago...you could not make individual text tones... since this thread was started that have sent thru an update and now we can. No need to give us step by step.....
This is for the message we are complaining about the contact feature ....if we delete the message the tones goes away it used to be in the contacts after ringtone I'm told its Google android that took it away
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.
