i got a new 6S Plus, from Verizon, running 9.3.1. I used to have the tweet sound as my notification for incoming text messages, but now it's gone from the 'classic' list as an option.

I can use tweet for every notification-except phone and text. How do I get it back?

Mine still shows Tweet tone in the Classic list for Text Tones. I'd suggest you check the list again. If it still isn't there, you can either reset your phone to default settings, or manually add the tone by downloading it. Here's one of the websites where you can download it from.

as for your question, you will need to sync the ringtone through iTunes or use of one those ringtone apps i think.

Pretty sure...
Your list is waaay different than my list. Have a look:

Nevertheless, a ringtone can be added to your iPhone the same way you sync a song via iTunes. Make sure to go to Tones on your iTunes when you add the file. You can find it on the left hand side of your iTunes screen:

Pretty sure...
You've inadvertently selected "Classic" under "Ringtones" instead of "Alert Tones."
You want to be at Settings > Sounds > Text Tone
Scroll down to "Classic" under "Alert Tones" which is in the middle of the page.
Do not scroll all the way down to "Classic" under "Ringtones"

So simple! So embarrassing. Thank you so much!!
