    When I plug my Nexus S into my computer and navigate to the device, there is a folder called music and within that folder there is a folder called ringtones. I can add and remove my ringtones from there.
    However my notification tones are listed under the media folder > audio > notifications.

    Hope that helps.

    I was really reluctant to help as im sure were others. 3 threads in a matter of minutes, Really???? good way to not be taken seriously when you have a "real" problem.

    I have AndExplorer which was free. With some searching I've been able to find random things and delete them through that. Good luck.

    If you cant find them by plugging the phone into the computer. There's got to be a way to take them off by rooting. Unfortunately I don't have any experience in rooting so I cant help you there.

    Are you wanting the take the default ringtones off? Or are these ring tones that you created with apps such as "Ringdroid"?

    @Ragdoll2002,

    Welcome to the forums! Before we deal with any ringtone issues there are a couple of things we should probably clarify first.

    -Creating 3 threads, within 5 minutes, regarding the same topic, is not going to assist you or anybody in helping you. This is called cross-posting and is specifically called out in the forum rules and guidelines. More specifically it's called out as being against them. I've merged your 3 threads into 1.

    -You should exercise more patience and not expect to have an answer in 5 minutes.

    -You should always use meaningful and appropriate titles in your threads. For example, this thread might appropriately be titled "Need help deleting ringtone" which let's people know what you're looking for, and also makes it searchable in the future. If later on someone has the same question, there is very little chance they will search "I am really stumped." which means any information shared here is lost and that person will need to create a new thread. I've renamed this one already for you.

    K.P.

    Why are you so desperate to delete a ringtone? If you're low on space, this probably isn't the answer.

    You can just press on the ringtones name. A screen will pop up and you can choose. Delete

    I've been rooted for so long I don't remember the answer to this......but can you delete system files if you are NOT rooted? If you can, then they will be located in the system/media/audio folder.
