    I have a Samsung Galaxy Core Prime..just got it. I downloaded songs for the ring tone AND to the Notifications file. I assigned ringtones to contacts and that works great. I now want to assign a "ringtone" to each contact to ring on a text message. I am able to get the songs/tone to my cell phone, but in Notification, it only allows me to choose ONE tone....for all texts. Is there a way around this so that I can assign a notification tone to each contact? I have DL'd several "songs" and they are all there, but it only allows me to choose one for all texts! Any suggestions?

    So I''ve been having the same problem with my S6 Edge+ ... Its kinda weird so with some friends I do what is told & go under the specific contact, add additional fields & then pick a certain text tone for them. & its worked. But just recently I tried doing it for a contact & its still using the "Verizon Alert" one?!?! Anyone know what gives

    After many searches through various forums on setting customized notifications for my contacts, and after many attempts at the given suggestions, all of which failed to work for individual customization (and I am not phone ignorant)I could select a notification tone different than the installed one but it only worked for all my contacts, not just the one I wanted it to alert me to. I finally went to the Verizon store. I was told that every batch of phones have glitches and that was my burden to bear. Thank you very much. I'm stubborn. Finally, after 8 months of trying every known suggestion this is what I found that does work - Galaxy S5, Verizon Carrier, Message+ user....
    1. Go to a received message in your messaging app
    2. Find the three dots by the phone symbol in the upper right corner
    3. Click Customize - top of the list
    4. Click Tones - 4th down the list
    5. Select the app you want to select your tone from (if you have more than the one that came with the phone)
    6. Select the tone
    7. Click on "Set Notification" on the bottom left of your screen and you're good to go

    Hello and welcome to Android Central Bridget Cusack!

    This is a Samsung Galaxy S5 firmware feature that is obviously missing from the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 I am afraid. Try posting on the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 forum for Android Central and see if they have a solution for you.

    Good luck!

    OK thank you. I'm new to this and didn't know there were individual forums for each phone and their issues.

    Here is what i did to customize my ringtone for text messages:
    Your phone has to be rooted so you can use root explorer.
    Then go to system-media-audio-notifications and in this folder you will copy your mp3 file into.
    reboot your phone and then go to settings and you will find your ringtone in your "text message ringtones files"

    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.
    Strongly recommend Zedge

    So you have to break the ROM codes and use a custom ROM?

    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 a real Solution. Open MyFiles, Select Audio, press and hold the sound you want as your notification (it will check the file), go up to the options button (the vertical 3 circles), hit copy, select device storage, find the folder named Notifications and click it, paste the audio file there.

    Now go to Settings, Sounds and Notifications, Notification ring tones, and your file will be listed along with all the other default notification sounds.

    Hope this helps, I did this so I could have droideka blaster shots as my text sound

    I'm sorry, but I didn't follow your instructions. I also don't think it's related to my question. I'm not looking to add new ringtones/notification sounds. I'm trying to customize specific ones to specific people. (Example: dad have "Beep", mom have "Boop", sister have "Ring", etc). I know how to find and save new tones but from what I can tell, I can only have ONE sounds (no matter what I choose it to be) and that becomes the "default notification sound".

    I have saved it in the notifications folder and it still does not show in the notification sounds. I tried adding it to a contact specifically and it works. I want to select it as the default notification tone, though. It is a tone and not a song or price of music. I'm stuck??? I'm assuming it's a problem with the phone. Anyou suggestions?

    I have Ringtone Pro installed on my phone from the app store. I have created ring tones and notifications for text messages and user contacts. Once you create the tone you want go to My files folder on your phone. In my case I have a Note 5.

    Path: My Files (folder on your home screen) /device storage/Locate the folder you saved the file in and move the file into the Notifications folder.

    Open your contacts/click on a person/hit edit in the top right/ Hit more at the bottom of the contact/Scroll down to message tone and set desired tone.

    ***NOTIFICATION SOUND CAN ONLY BE 30 seconds LONG IN ORDER TO WORK!!!

    Hit me on Google+ Mr.entert8inment

    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.

    I have done everything listed in this thread. My contacts each have a specific message tone but they don't work. It uses the general one that is in the settings. I have had so may issues with this S5. Any suggestions?

    Well, when you are at the contact level are you actually selecting a ringtone for that person and then saving the contact? Are you selecting to turn on the messaging ringtone field, selecting and entering in a ringtone and then saving that? You are doing something wrong or missing a step somewhere. It isn't rocket science, it is a phone. Most people that choose an Android phone should have no trouble with setting up stuff like this. It is pretty basic.
    The steps above are great, ive done them many times, but they don't actually result in change. The problem might lie with the AT&T Messages app that came pre-installed. I do like the app bc it converts my voicemails to mp3 for instant listening. And somewhere along the way i managed to change the tone that the app uses for (all) text notifications-- to something i now regret. But for the life of me I can't find where to change it again. I know this is a really old thread, but the question still pertains.

    My daughter has an S5 Neo and I have just an S5. I can customize my contacts with their personal text notifiction tone but she can't. The option isn't there like mine is. On my contact detail page I can click on a little pencil on top right and edit the ring tone/notificcation tone for that person. Her contact detail page doesn't give her the option to change the tone for that person.
