Want different notification sounds for each contact
Unable to install Handcent SMS, Go SMS, light flow, they just spin & spin for hours saying they are installing but they never install

What app works on droid maxx ( not razor) that supports customization?
Or is one of my settings wrong?

I've searched on the forum & can't find anything

Thx!!

I don't think you can set custom sounds for text messages with the stock Messaging app. You can set custom ringtones for each contact in the Contacts app, but that only applies to calls not texts (I believe). Not sure why you are having trouble downloading a new Messaging app from the Play Store...that seems strange.

Haven't tried it lately, but setting different ringtones for contacts, at one time, made it play that entire song when they texted you. My girlfriend and I went round and round about it.

Hangouts? I think I've seen this option in Google Hangouts.
