    Welcome to the forums. In the settings menu of text messages, you have the option to change the tone. If your sound is a file, you may need a file exploring app, like ES File Explorer, or Solid Explorer. When you click on the sound, it should ask where you want to get the sound from, and the file exploring app should be an option.

    I'm trying to do the same thing. When I go to pick a ringtone, there's an "add" button. It will open up my files and let me select a sound file. But it doesn't do that when I go to pick a notification tone.

    I tried to plug my phone into my PC and move the sound file I wanted as a message tone into the folder with the other notification tones. But when I try to move it, a window pops up and it says "Waiting: Sarah's Galaxy is busy." What does that mean? It's been "busy" for an hour!

    I've encountered the same issue, here's how you do it:
    Go into Tools> My Files> Audio
    Hold down the sound file you want (or multiple on the check box on the left) then hit> More> Copy
    This should bring you to a new screen where you can choose Local or Cloud Storage> Click Device Storage
    Then click the Notifications Folder> Paste Here
    Now go back into your Settings>Sounds and Notifications>Ringtones and Sounds> (One of the Notification Options) and your sound should be in there. If not, restart your phone and you should be good.

    You can also do this while your phone is plugged into the computer by:
    Opening your phone with "Open Devise to View Files"
    Copy the sound file and paste it into the Notifications Folder (if you do not have a notifications folder for some reason simply create new folder (specifically name it "Notifications" then paste the sound file into this folder)
    Now go back to your settings for sound and select the sound file for whatever notification you wish it to be.
