Tip & How-To about Samsung Cell Phones
Took me awhile to figure this out as doesnt seem to be much info on it. If you try to change your text notification sound all you can select is default sounds that are preloaded on the phone when you get it.
To get custom notification sounds you will first need to down load some. You can do this by surfing the web or find apps to download from. Once you have the MP3 file you simply copy the MP3 file to the "Notification" folder in the Note 5. (Use "my files" app to find the folder) Then go back into settings and change your notification sound, you will now see the new MP3 file or files you copied. This works the exact same way as custom ring tones but the MP3 file must be put into "Ringtone" folder of the Note 5. This is where I messed up in the first place. I assumed the Note 5 would look in the ringtone folder for notification sounds. Nope, Notifications has its own folder......
