    Hello,

    Like the title said, how do you set custom ringtone for text messaging. It seem like only the call ringtone are allowed to use custom ringtone but not for text messaging.

    Thanks ahead,
    -Andy

    Here is how I did it. Go into your contacts. Choose the contact that you want a custom message tone. Edit that contact. At the bottom choose to add additional fields. You can choose to add message ringtone there. When you save from there, you will have that option to change the ringtone. save the contact and you are done.

    Just copy your custom ringtone file into the notifications folder on your device and it will show up in the list for you to select.

    The app ZEDGE is awesome for custom ringtones, notification tones and wallpapers. You can download a ringtone or wallpaper and select it to be the default...all from the app.

    First of all, for a custom messaging ringtone for everyone, while in your list of messages in messaging, click menu (...), Settings, Notification Sound and then pick your ringtone. For an individual messaging ringtone for a specific contact do what Goggy59 said earlier. You can set them both so a ringtone rings for any message and specific ringtone rings for certain contacts.

    I downloaded the app Zedge. In there you can download anything that is available. From there you're able to set it either for ringtone, notifications, and etc. Hope that helps.

    You don't need an app to do what your phone can do already by itself.

    I think you can only set specific ringtones for your contacts...unfortuntately, unlike my old Motorola Roker, you can't set specific notifications for each contact. For notifications you're basically stuck with one for all of them.

    You can set specific ringtones by editing each contact and then selecting add at the bottom of the screen if you want to put a ringtone that isn't already there. If you have music on your memory card, you can select ringtones from there.

    To add notifications that aren't already there, like someone else said, connect to a PC>Computer>Galaxy S5>Notifications...copy and paste what you want in there, like an MP3 song, etc...

    You can do the same thing for ringtones if you don't have music on your memory card or don't have the song you want, etc...

    That is totally wrong. You can have custom calling ringtones AND custom text ringtones for each contact. In your contact list select menu and add in the appropriate field to allow for custom text ringtones. Also you can select any ringtone. I have all my self created ones on my SD-Card and I pretty much only use those. I have a custom ringtone and text tone for every contact in my GS5 the same as I did on my old GSII.

    How to make mp3 tones as text tone.
    This is how I did if you like it to apply to all contacts.
    1. Copy your .mp3 tone to notification foler on your samsung s5.
    2. Go to message, then Message Settings/Settings, then go to notifications.
    under notification sound, when you scroll it, you will find your .mp3 tone.
    3 Select it, and there you go. you now have a customized mp3 text tone.

    Hi Andy
    I have downloaded a ringtone that I want to use as my message tone, but it only appears in my ringtones. How can I transfer it to notifications?

    As explained earlier, you edit the contact, click "Add another field", notification is right there.

    You can use the My Files app to find the file in your ringtones folder (under device storage) and then copy it to your notifications folder. Hope that's what you were looking for.
