Default Ton of RingTones stuck on my phone??? Can't get them off.

Please Login to Remove!

Okay, I stored like 500 ring tones on my phone. And now I can't get them off. When I go to "Ringstones" on my phone they're not there, when I plug phone into comp, ringtones are not there. But when I go to options and then profiles, and then try to change tones for SMS/Email/Phone etc etc, all the ringtones are there, and it freezes up my phone every time I try to change the ringtones because phone is trying to load up all those tones. Can't find them in Desktop manager.

Does anyone know how I can find these tones and delete them off my micro SD card?

Thanks.

Have you tried a battery pull? Try pulling the battery out with the power still on. Wait about 30 seconds and then reassemble the phone. Sometimes, when you delete medial files, you need to do a battery pull to reset the media database that stores pointers/data about things like ringtones. It is possible that the ringtones are gone, but the database still shows them - resulting in the lockup and other issues...

But I never deleted them, that's the thing. Never had the chance to. But hey I fixed it. Copied files on my micro SD card, then wiped card, and then pasted files back on, and now those 500 tones are gone.

Thanks
