    Default SGS 3 - Ringtone fiasco!!

    Ok so I just installed an app called "Business Tones" from the play store and set a tone as my ringtone. When I went to System Settings/Sound/Device Ringtone.....I noticed that all of my 1000+ MP3's are showing up as playable ringtones!! This wasn't the case the last time I checked. Do you guys think its the app somehow enabled some type of setting that allows MP3's to be seen in the settings menu when I set up one of the ringtones from the app?? Where is that setting so I can disable it?!?!?!.....because I can't find it, lol!! I def don't want to sift through thousands of MP3's just to find my appropriate ringtone, lol! Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Try Zedge. Much easier to use.

    By the way, I like your subject line.

    I have Zedge and use it. I'm just trying to find out if this is normal or not. I just uninstalled that app and its still reading my MP3's. I unmounted my ext SD card and its finally not reading my MP3's as ringtones. Does anyone know how to disable this feature??

    Thanks!

    Did you clear the app cache and data before removing it?

    Yes I did. So, after unmounting my SD card and remounting it, its no longer picking up my MP3's but it is still picking up the MP3's that get saved on my phones storage. I think the culprit is the 'Download MP3' app that is storing it in my phones storage space. I'm going to have to change it to my SD card. Strange that I didn't notice this for some time!

    That's a weird problem! I've never heard of something like that.

    Yeah it is weird!! I had been using a particular ringtone for a very long time and had decided to change it because I was getting tired of it. Thats how I came across this, lol!
