    Due to some proplems that I was having I refreshed the media database but did not know that it would actually delete all of the Android supplied ringtones.

    Does anyone know how I can get the ringtones reinstaled (without doing a factory reset). If someone can tell me where they are stored and the name(s) of the files I could copy them from my wife's S3 (neither of us are rooted).

    It can't actually delete the ringtones as they're protected so only root can delete them.

    Try refreshing the database again then battery pull and refresh again. They are there just maybe not picked up by the scan.

    Also did you manually format your post text colour to Black? Unreadable in tapatalk application :(

    Thanks, I did a restart before I got your advice but that did not help I did a battery pull and that fixed it.

    I don't think I did anythng about my text color, how do I change it and what color do you suggest?

    Again, thanks for your help.
