Default Deleting pre-loaded pics/ringtones

Please Login to Remove!

I just got a Pearl (LOVE IT!!!). I was wondering if there was a way to delete the default pics and ringtones cuz i want to make room for my own ringtones.

btw...does anybody know how much memory comes on the phone?

Read through it a couple of times and read the thread (there's a lot of posts) and I think you'll find it's pretty easy.

okay that made a lot more sense after a couple readthroughs, i did everything and all the pictures and ringtones are still there, do i delete the "removed modules" folder completely, or move it out of the java folder?

Did you connect the BB to the Desktop Manager and run Application Loader all the way through to the very end?

yup, it only took like 6 or 7 minutes as opposed to 10-20, but i unchecked all the unneeded stuff and it finished.

do i need to restart the phone or something like that?

btw, i really appreciate your help. no wonder you're the best mod here.

Yeah, you might remove the battery. Sometimes the thumbnails will still show but the pictures are really gone and the memory freed.

okay took out the battery.

the thumbnails of the pictures are still there, but when i click to enlarge them, they're not there. so i'm guessing they're deleted????

but the ringtones are there, were they in that 3.5 mb folder i removed, or was there something i missd.

Preinstalled Ringtones are likely one of these two .cod's. However, if you remove them you remove all your notifications for emails, ringtones, etc.

does that also mean no sound when i get a text?

or can you assign an imported file for texts, like you can for ringtones.

You can create your own. I can't see any reason why it wouldn't work. However, I've never removed the tunebundle.cod's from the device.

hmm, i can't seem to figure out how to even change the notification options when i get a text (making it vibrate, vibrate+sound, etc.) so i won't even bother.

on my old phone i didn't run out of memory even with some pretty big ringtone files and a number of pics, so this should be okay.

do you know how much memory a pearl ships with anyways?

How do I edit my notification tones (profiles)?

Want to change the tone you hear when you get an SMS, MMS, or IM? Want to change the ringer for the phone? Follow these directions to edit the Profiles area on the device:

1. Select the Profiles icon

2. A box will appear where you can quick select between Loud, Vibrate, Quiet, Normal, Phone Only, and Off. If you wish to quick change the device profiles then select the one you want and exit out.

3. If you want to edit the tones assigned to the device applications then select the last option, Advanced
(some older models and OS 4.1 and below will not have the "Advanced" step--if Advanced is not present go directly to Step 4 below).

4. Select the profile you wish to edit. (Loud, Vibrate, Quiet, Normal (default), Phone Only, Off)
Note: on the 8100, 8800, and 8300 models: Do not click the trackball. Instead, click the menu key to the left of the trackball).
Note: The profile that is in use will say: (Active)

5. You will now see a list of all applications that can have a tone assigned (Browser, Calendar, Level 1 Messages, Messages (email@domain.com), Messenger, MMS, Phone, SMS, Task ect..)

6. Select the application you wish to edit the tone / notification for

7. You can now edit Out of Holster and In Holster tones/ notifications.
a) Select between: None, Tone, Vibrate, Vibrate+Tone
b) Select the Tune you wish to use
c) Select Volume (options are Mute, Low, Medium, High, Escalating)
d) Select Number of Beeps (options are 1, 2, 3)
e) Select Repeat Notification (options are None, LED Flashing)
f) If set to Vibrate or Vibrate+Tone then select Number of Vibrations (options are 1, 2, 3)

8. Repeat a-e for each of the desired applications listed in 5 above

Go to your address book. Then highlight the contact to add the ringtone to. Then select "edit." Then hit menu and select "add custome ringtune."
