Hello,

Lumia 1520 user, today just updated from 8.1 to 10. Went through all the updates, even the extra one I was prompted to make after the 10 had been installed.

I am trying to find the setting in which I can change the tone of the text message. According to an info page here for a Lumia 950/950 XL, it is meant to be located in Settings - System - Notification and Actions however when I go to that section, text message/sms is not listed.

I have also read about doing something called a hard reset but I don't want to do that and then have to go to the trouble of reinstalling windows 10 again.

Any tips on how I can change the tone or where I am meant to be looking?

Thanks for your time!

From Sarah.

Hi, and welcome.

Settings notifies are visible after first notification has come. Send yourself a sms and reboot your phone, so setting will appear
;)
Cheers
