    I would like to be able to select a silent ringtone for certain contacts that are things like the local radio station telling me when someone won a ballgame...I've signed up for these texts but I don't want it to make any sound. I've always been able to choose silent as a ringtone, but in the S7 - Edge that isn't a choice. I recorded a silent ringtone on voice recorder, but when I go to ringtones, more options it doesn't give me the option to pick anything, I think that a default has been chosen, so I don't know how to clear a default on the app, I don't even know what app to look for as there is no notification app. HELP!

    I am a little confused. Are you trying to change the ringtone for that contact or the Message tone?
    You can access both under Contacts. Find the contact, open the contact and tap on edit. In the window that appears scroll down the page (you might have to tap on More) till you come to Ringtones and then Message tone. Tap on these you should have your choice options.

    I understand u want to set a silent notification for SMS at certain contacts.
    Connect your phone to computer. Go to ringtones folder, search the silent ringtone recorder with voive recorder. Copy this file on Notification folder on the phone.
    Now you should be able to see and select this tone for SMS notification. In contacts go to desired contact, edit, scroll down and find SMS notification. There your ringtone will be now showed.
