I just changed one of my contacts under a message in the messenger app, he sent me with the 3 dots on top right and selected custom, and through the settings, I was able to change the notification sound just fine. Was not even hard to figure out either.
Unfortunately that is not an option under my text messages anymore. It
stopped when I updated to oreo. Maybe it's just the Samsung 7. Thanks for

Mine is an s7 edge, and should be hardly any difference at all. Oh well, can't say I didn't try but if you are just going to tell me and make it look as if I do not know what I am talking about then just keep doing what your doing. I will just enjoy the feature since it is there.
Hey folks! This specific level of customization is directly from the Manufacturer and the OS. As the carrier, we don't mess with any settings on the phone that are directly related to how the device communicates with the network.
As an alternative, you may want to look into downloading a 3rd party messaging app that has a deeper level of customization than the stock app.
They are called channels now. Depending on which text app you are using, if its android Messages click on the three dots inside the thread of the person you want to customize the notification for, then click make a sound and change it to your desired tone. If its the Samsung default, inside the thread slide the right side panel click notification and follow the same process.
Wow, that is the worst answer i've ever heard, big help HUH, Thanks T-Mobile
The option is supposed to be available within the contacts app, just like in Lolipop, Kit Kat and nougat,
You are supposed to go to Contacts, Search for the person you want to customize, Tap Edit, Add More Fields, and add a message tone.
Everyone keep saying download this and that, I am not downloading another text app, the feature is not is a text app,
Samsung needs to bring this feature back to the Contact App like before.,
BRING IT BACK SAMSUNG. BRING IT BACK.
I can set the custom notification for the text, but after a day or so, it goes back to the default setting and I have to reset it again. It's very frustrating. This was not happening before the last update.
