    Default Deleting a ringtone?

    So i accidently added a song to "use as ringtone" when i was trying to get it to a playlist. I know this isnt a big deal, but i want to delete it from my ringtone list. Problem is, when i go into my file manager and go to ringtones its not there! anyone know if this can be delete?

    My Astro file app can view the Ringtone directory in the Droid's system files (\System\Media\Audio\Ringtones). It can also do a file search.

    I did this the first day I got my phone and was stumped as well. That is until I found the ring tone with my MP3's in the music app. Then simply long press on it, then hit delete.

    I am having the same problem, but I have been into the music app files and there are no ringtones in there? Where else can they be hiding?

    plug it in via USB, and check your ringtones folder. It may be there twice, once in music, and once in ringtones.

    Any file considered to be "music" (and thus viewable in the music player) can end up being marked in an internal database as being a "ringtone" as well if you hit that "Use as ringtone" button. There is pretty much no built-in method to un-mark this.

    I got tired of not being able to remove these accidental ringtones, so I put a (free) solution up on the market. "Ring Remover" does nothing but offer to remove the "is ringtone" status of any media that are both "music" and "ringtone". (It'll leave the file there, so you can still play it as music.)

    (If you downloaded ringtones, or put things in an explicit ringtone directory, you need a different solution -- involving physically deleting the files -- since the file scanner will just recreate the ringtone status everytime you restart or re-insert the SD card.)

    Delete Ringtone is an app on the Android Market that works great at deleting Ringtones. You can also remove the phone's default ringtones.

    Thumbs up Solution

    I searched and searched for a solution and finally located one. It won't let me post the link where I found it but here's the solution below.

    1. Go to Settings>Applications>Manage Applications
    2. Hit Menu Button > Filter > All
    3. Scroll To DRM Protected Content Storage and select
    4. Clear Data

    Hope it helps and saves some others wasted time searching.

    /sdcard/media/audio/ringtones
    I found the *.mp3 name but when I deleated the files it did not remove them from the ringtone list

    Yes but it only shows the *.ogg's that ship with the phone. It does not show the ringtones that MP3 Ringtone Maker added to the ring tone list!

    Actually, I found that the same app I used to create the ringtone also let me delete it from the list!

    HI, I'm Rimmy and I'm new to the Android world, and I've gone Android happy by downloading some that I now want to get rid of. That's what led to to the forum. By and large i'm enjoying the Droid world.

    SGH T589 phone notifying memory is full erroneously. How do I correct that?

    I have a new RAZR MAXX, and downloaded a couple of ringtones I didn't want. I came to this forum, which led me to this PERFECT app: Awesome Ringtone Manager, free. of course. It lists all your ringtones, you delete at will. PERFECT!!

    if you go into google play store and download the FREE app ringtone remover (the picture is a green and white recycling bin) once you download and open the app it lets you select the ringtones you want to delete including stock ringtones. I hope this helps.

    Default Re: Deleting a ringtone? (PERMANENTLY)

    I used Ringtone Remover to try and get rid of my S3's pre-installed ringtones. Appeared to work fine But next time I switched the phone on they were all back.They are clearly reloaded automatically at startup.
    Many other things are reloaded by the same start up process so playing about could cause major problems. I also don't want to root my phone.
    I see that Delete Ringtone has been recommended.
    Does anyone know if that app PERMANENTLY removes or hides the pre-installed ringtones or will they just reappear next time the phone is booted up?
