Why can't I change my notification tone?

My Verizon LG G3 phone will not let me change my text notification tone. No matter which one I select, it goes back to the one I do not want. Have tried all I know, including powering the phone off/on, but that did not solve the issue. How can I fix this?

I would be distraught as well, if I could not get my text notification sound set, mpf523. When did this start? Are you on the new software? Is there an option for you to save as default when you browse your text notification sounds in Settings?

It allows me to select any default sound notification I want, and save it, but it then goes right back to the old one on it's own. Will not allow me to select any other notification sound at all

It started doing this on it's own as of yesterday, and nothing I've tried has resolved the issue.
