    Can someone help?
    On my phone there is no option for me to change default notification tone. See screenie for what I see when I tap Settings--Sounds and vibration--Notification sounds.

    I have tried resetting default apps which I saw from a Google search as a possible solution, but it didn't work.

    Would appreciate any help! My phone is unrooted, if that makes any difference. Screenshot_20171015-030916.png

    Thanks, but that is only the notification tone for messages. I'm missing the option to change Default notifications (i.e. all notifications other than Messages and Calendar which are shown).

    If I'm not wrong, there should be options for that, as well as Email notifications, but that's not given as well.

    You'll need to choose your notification sounds in each apps settings, so that would be your texting app, your email app, etc... The list you posted is for generic sounds only.

    Because other apps send notifications too (game apps etc), so I'm looking for the option to change the default tone for all notifications. It wouldn't be easy to go to every single app and change the tones for them one by one, and there has always been an option to change default notification tone but it just isn't showing on mine :(

    FOUND THE SOLUTION AFTER OPENING EVERY SINGLE OPTION ON SOUNDS AND VIBRATION! so happy!!

    In case anyone needs to know, the default notifications setting is now under Ringtone. Click that and you can change ringtone and notification tone.
