When I get a text the phone beeps.  Consequent texts in the same conversation do NOT give me audio notification sounds.  HOW do I make it so every single text that arrives makes a sound notification?

If you are in the text message app and looking at the text, it won't give you the sound

That's TERRIBLE.  UNACCEPTABLE.  The programmers never heard of MULTITASKING?

If you're using the chat app and in conversation XX and get a new text in conversation XX, most apps won't send a Notification ... why? because you're there looking 🙂

If you're in conversation XXX and get a text for conversation YYY, yea, you'll get a Notification for YYY

I am NOT looking; I'm going back to typing or working while I WAIT for the person to answer. 

You might have heard of the concept called MULTITASKING.

I'm not going to sit there like a moron staring at the screen waiting for a text answer when I could be doing something else, or when the person I'm texting with might be distracted AND MIGHT NOT ANSWER FOR FIVE TEN OR EVEN THIRTY MINUTES.

That's why you have an audio notification for consequent texts.

This is a design flaw that's so STUPID and frankly OFFENSIVE I really think someone deserves to be fired and I deserve an apology and an immediate fix.

The phone doesn't know that you are multi tasking.
Also if you are multi tasking, why do you need Notification alert. After all, you are multi tasking. So it's your task to get back to your phone and check.

I PAID $1000 FOR THIS PHONE AND SAMSUNG WILLFULLY AND DELIBERATELY REMOVED A SIMPLE ALERT FUNCTION THAT FACILITATES MULTITASKING WITHOUT GIVING ME THE OPTION TO ENABLE.

THIS IS A DEAL-BREAKER FOR ME.  I'LL HAVE TO GET A REFUND FOR THIS USELESS PIECE OF GARBAGE IF I DON'T GET A FIX.
