    Turn off phone > take out your SD card > plug SD card into your computer > find said ringtone file > delete file > remove SD card from computer > put the SD card back into the phone.

    OR

    Mount phone to your computer > find said ringtone file > delete file > unmount phone.

    Try downloading something like Astro file manager so you can see all the contents of your phone. Look around and you'll probably find it in one of the SD card folders or on the SD card by itself. Worth a shot.

    another thought... did you check under Cell Phones, Mobile Phones, and Wireless Calling Plans from Sprint under content manager? i think that's where a lot of the downloaded call tones go... not sure if that's what it is or not.

    I was trying so hard on trying to delete the downloaded ringtone like cutebigman4you myself and at first, couldn't find it at all.
    later on, I downloaded some apps and the download histrory notification showed up and all downloaded stuff were there, even the ringtone's there that couldn't be found in anywhere else, so I hit clear the download history and the ringtones's gone!
    so hope this helps you!

    but I can't find where to go in "Download Hostroy", does any one know how? thank you!

    You have downloads in a separate folder - I found this out the silly way with a photo...

    SD Card > download - sound should be here...

    If you assigned it as a ringtone from this folder, it will place a duplicate in your 'media/ringtone' folder so you must delete them from both locations to make it go away. Then usually a reboot to rest the ringtone library and you are back in business.
