    It seems as if I must go and select a custom sound for all my contacts on my S10 in order to get a sound notification of a text from that person. I DO NOT WANT THIS. I must have turned something on by mistake.
    I would like only 1 sound for ALL MY TEXT messages notifications.
    Can anyone give me some guidance?

    My guess is that you have either set the default notification sound to silent or else set the notification sound for your message app to silent. So check the system default as above, and also check your message app's settings for its notification sound.

    I can't be more specific as I don't use the stock SMS app so am not familiar with its settings, even assuming they are the same (my s21 is on Android 12, so the stock app may be different). Another solution is of course to use a different SMS app and set that app's notification sound to whatever you want, but I'd hope the stock app isn't so bad that you need to do that just to get a notification.
