    Welcome to the forums. The procedure may vary depending on the device. What do you have?

    OK so if it is like vanilla android, select your contact and click the 3 dot menu at the top. That should have set ringtone as an option.

    Your texting program would probably have to do that for you.

    I don't know about the stock text app. You may have to get a third party app to do that.

    For texting I'd recommend Textra - great app overall and it can set a notification tone per contact (along with other per contact customization like colors, etc.). I think Handcent and ChompSMS are the other popular third-party texting apps.
