Axon 7 Ability to set separate contact notification tones

I have found how to set individual ring tones for contacts, but not individual/personalized text notification tones for contacts. ie:each contacts with their unique tone.

RING TONES don't matter because my life is texting, and strangely this is a deal breaker for me.  (tones from Zedge for example, not wimpy phone tones)

I had this on my iPhones, M7 and my Note 4.

Anybody smarter than me on this?

As an aside, I had an Axon 7 for a little over 24 hours. it went into some kind of lock screen loop that even a factory reset wouldn't resolve. Returned it and haven't got another one because of this text tone issue. I know  I'm weird.....

ANY help on this?  I loved the phone and especially the speakers!!

    I too have found that issue. 

    I already reported it.  Are you importing from already downloaded ringtones?

    I was and it did not allow me to set them. 

    Only work around for now and its a pain.  Download app Zedge and apply them individually. 

    Somehow the app allows it to do that. 

    I am still looking for an easier workaround and hoping the next update has the fix.

    Thanks for the reply!  I did not try downloading to contact straight from Zedge, but that is where most of mine are from.

    Hmmmm, so you're telling me there's a chance!

    Yes sir that is how I got it to work for me.

    Ok, just ordered an Axon 7 from Best Buy. Due Monday the 31st so it says.  Will give this phone a 2nd try and it is mostly due to the moderator forum participation. And of course the speakers.....

    I'm still waiting for this too... I tried zedge and it only changed the ring tone, not text...

    I thought I saw your username around here before . Welcome back!

    Interesting With Zedge I am able to set either one.

    Try an app called Mood.

    Has some nice features.

    Thanks. I'll keep trying, but I would still like to see it natively. It was nice to know if a message needed to be addressed right away or if it could wait without looking.

  • I just rechecked zedge to make sure I wasn't crazy, and I do not have that option. I only have the option to change specific contact ringtones, and the whole phone notification tone. But no specific contact notification.... Bummer

    Don't use the built-in texting app, use Textra.

    It's the best on the market and you can set individual text notification tones for each contact.

    Been using Textra for about 8 months now.  Will never use anything else!!

    They also have terrific technical support if you have an issue.

  • I saw you had posted that before, so I figured I'd try it. It's pretty great so far! Thanks for the recommendation! Have a great day!

    Textra is still my favorite SMS app. Use it on all of my devices.
