    So this is my first ever smartphone. i was wondering if there was any way to change the lock and unlock sounds to something custom without rooting.

    Go to Settings, scroll down to Sounds, click Notification and change the sounds.

    I don't think that's what he meant (or maybe I'm misreading).

    I know that the lock/unlock sounds change when changing the screen swipe effect; however, I might like one effect (e.g. Particle) but I might like the sounds from another effect (e.g. Ripple). The lock/unlock sounds seem to be tied to those. My default notification sound is one of the Vienna Boys ones, but I have never heard it play for any notification for any app. I have left it at that Vienna Boys sounds because to me it's intentionally annoying and so if I ever hear it, I can track it down easier -- if that makes sense.

    That said, I read somewhere (likely on XDA) that it can be changed only by rooting and replacing the sound file (something.ogg) with another one. Since you (OP) mentioned that you didn't want to root, I'll leave it at that. Maybe there is something that can be done, hopefully someone will chime in.

    Not sure if you found the answer but if not first make sure your lock screen is set to swipe.
    Next go to your settings
    click on lock screen
    them go to unlock effect.
    Here you will be able to choose from a minimal types of swiping sounds. .
    hope this helps
