    Default Incoming Text message alert tone on Galaxy s5

    How do I get the single, one time alert tone back? All of a sudden I'm getting the samsung incoming call song that just keeps playing and playing until I go in and open up the home page and click on the text message?
    Also, is there anyway to see if a text shows up on the screen without touching the on button and swiping up the page to get the the text icon? Thanks !!!

    Open the text messaging application > settings > notification. There should be something to enable notification then select the ringtone or notification tone. Switch it to the single-sound/pop.

    Let us know if you have any questions.
