    I have a Galaxy S7 and just got an S8. I notice that some of the standard ringtones or message tones are NOT in the S8, which is unusual to me.

    I am wondering how can I transfer those ringtones from S7 to S8? There is nothing in the ringtones folder on the S7.

    Thank you

    Maybe a difference between Nougat and Oreo?

    I have no idea. I am not too much of a tech expert on droid devices. :-/ But doesn't make sense for the OS to have the defaults like that on some and not others but that's just my 2 cents.

    in any event - how can I find/extract/transfer?

    Plug the S7 into a computer. (It should appear as a new drive.) Look for a folder named Ringtones. Go in there and find the "missing" ones. Drag them to the computer (the desktop, a folder you made on the desktop, anywhere). Now unplug the S7 and plug in the S8. Find the same folder and go into it. Drag the ringtones from the computer to the S8. (Make sure you use "safely remove" if it's a Windows computer.) Restart the S8, and you'll see the "missing" ringtones.
