    I recall there was a specific app for it available on the market, but I can't recall the name.

    Apart from that is there anyway to delete unwanted ringtones or notification tones?

    I should specify ringtones that I have downloaded that i wish to delete, not ringtones that are stock for the phone

    Well the stock ringtones are in system/media/audio/ringtones. Have you checked there too see if the ones you downloaded are there?

    The ringtones you downloaded should be on your sd card probably in a media folder

    I don't know how. I looked for what you described but can't find anything starting with 'system'.

    Even if you are not rooted any type of file explorer, (I Use Root explorer) will allow you to search your SD will even let you view your root system..but it will not allow your alter it. just scroll down to SD card... find a folder called media and inside that should be two notifications and the other ringtones I use ringdroid to make my ringtones and thats where it stores them..probably the same for other ringtone makers too. once you access the ringtones you can probably long press on the ringtone to bring up a menu to delete the file. good luck

    Only problem with Root explorer is its a paid app, unless you know how to get paid apps for free install this one on your phone, its free and it does the same thing :) and its a good app, has over 23 million downloads, although I like and I have root explorer, this one will work just fine for you.

    And then look for sdcard/system/media/ringtones.

    and also look in system/media/ringtones in case their not in the sd card.

    and delete the ringtones if you can find them.

    Good luck report back if you were able to do it.

    Link to root explorer $3.99, for whatever reason.

    Hi. I downloaded the suggested free file viewer and installed it. I went to /system/media/audio/ringtones and tried to delete them. They will NOT delete. These are the ringtones that come with the LG Optimus-S. However, these are not my problem. My problem is that I added a few ringtones. How do I delete those additional ringtones and where do I find them? Thanks in advance.

    Dick, I was able to delete any ringtones I downloaded with Ringdroid, available free on the market.
