    Hi I have recently changed to S5 galaxy and it is driving me crazy with some settings. I am trying to add my own text sound. I have read previous posts but none of the answers have helped as when i go into my files/device storage I DONT have a notifications folder. Yes I have ringtones which I have put my own tune in there but not for text messaging. When in setting in text message they have preloaded sounds but on an ADD button at the bottom. Please help.

    8. Click on ‘More’
    9. Scroll down to ‘Copy’
    10. Click on ‘Device Storage’
    11. Scroll down to ‘Music’
    12. Scroll down to ‘Notifications’
    13. Click on ‘Paste Here’
    14. Exit back to home screen by using back button or arrow at top of the screen
    15. Swipe down for ‘Settings’
    16. Click on ‘Sounds and Notifications’
    17. Click on ’Ring Tones and Sounds’
    18. Scroll down to ‘Messages’
    19. Ensure ‘On’ is selected
    20. Click on ’Notification Sound’
    21. Scroll down until you find the song/s that you have added and select the one that you want as your text alert tone

    Note: The song will play in its entirety until the text is opened. By using a music editing programme, before copying the song, you can make the alert shorter or just a part of the song can be selected.
