    My son's Motion has started doing something screwy. Whenever he gets a Text Message or any other type of Notification, one of the Ringtones plays in it's entirety before playing the Notification sound he has chosen.

    It's the first one listed under LG Ringtones under Settings/Sound/Ringtone & Notifications/Phone Ringtone on the phone. It's called Acappella Beep and
    it's extremely annoying.....not just because it's a horrible ringtone (which it is!), but because there is no way to stop it until it plays out and it is long.

    My son asked if I could delete the ringtone to stop it. I connected his phone to the computer. There were no ringtones at all in the folder marked Ringtones. In the folder Media/Audio/Ringtones were seven of the LG Ringtones. I'm confused because the Motion has 30 ringtones on it.

    I spent over an hour going through every folder on both Internal Memory and SD Card and didn't find another ringtone anywhere. Does anyone know where the rest are hiding or how to stop that horrible ringtone? Because of his age he gets lots of texts and this is driving us crazy. Help!

    His phone is rooted if you need to know that.

    Yes you need to be root so its good that your rooted, download a root explorer app and head to /system/media this directory contains alarms, notifications, and ringtones folders with all the built in audio, feel free to delete what you don't need ;)

    You are my HERO!!! I installed Root Explorer, followed your directions and deleted that horrible ringtone. Now his Notifications are working like they are supposed to. The whole family (along with my son's friends!) are thrilled that horrible thing has stopped. Thank you so much!
