    Is there any way to extract the ringtones and alert sounds from the HTC Incredible? Do you have to be rooted?

    Is there anywhere online that the collection or a zip of them is hosted?

    I'm not positive, but I'm going to say yes. Something like Root Explorer gives you R/W abilities to any folder in the filesystem. Allowing you to copy files away from normally restricted areas. Not sure if ringtones are held in such a file. Download Astro Manager and see for yourself, thats another file explorer.

    Without root you can't modify or delete files from the system folder but you can still copy and paste them to the SD. I think you could move them off at that point but I'm not positive. I'm rooted or I'd try it to verify.

    Would you mind copy anything from the media folder (alerts, notifications and ringtones) and uploading to Dropbox or some file hosting site? I'm having a TON of trouble finding the INcred tones
