Samsung Galaxy S3 : How to Assign Different Message Tone in Different Contact

Some insiders asked me through the comments they leave in a couple of articles on this blog about how to set a different message tone for each contact so they could hearing a different message tone when receiving an incoming message from different contact. Unfortunately the stock messaging app on the Samsung Galaxy SIII does not provide the option to do so, you can only set the same message tone for all contacts.

Well, let's thanks to the Google Play Store as the official market for Android phones which provide you many choices of the applications to fill the shortage in stock applications. For example, in this case you can set a different message tone for each contact using a third-party messaging apps that you can get on the Play Store .

How to set different message tone for each contact?
As an example, we will use the Handcent SMS app to do so:
  1. Download install Handcent SMS app through the Play Store.
  2. Once the installation is completed, launch the app.
  3. All the conversation in the stock messaging app will be automatically retrieved on this app.
  4. Tap the desired message from certain contact you wish to change the message tone.
  5. Tap the Menu key then select Personalization.
  6. Tap Notification settings.
  7. Tap Notification sound.
  8. Select the desired message tone, either from the default tones or from your own music or tones.
  9. Tap OK button to save the changes.

So simple to do, right? Now, you can easily assign different message tone on each contact. As a note, you can only set the message tone to a contact who has been sent you a message. So, hope this helps :)
