So my phone wont use the ringtone I downloaded. It uses some default one. Then it assigned a song I downloaded for a contact ringtone. And when I make and receive calls it starts off in speaker.

All this after I moved files off re sd card, formatted the card, and moved files back.

I understand having to redo the ringtones but them reassigning random ones and the speaker phone thing is weird. A reboot seems to have fixed it.

Once you format an SD card and re-load the files, they are in different places on the card than they were before. Thus, the "path" to the individual files is different than previously. This happens with flash drives and external drives with a PC. Once they are re-formatted, often you have to re-do the connections/shortcuts to bring them up to date.

The X seems to be pretty capable of tracking down files, but this may explain some of the ringtone weirdness. If it can't find the appropriate ringtone, it will use the default.

A battery pull after major changes is always helpful to get things to settle down.
