    Hi folks.
    My wife has bought herself a Samsung Galaxy A52 5G phone and it has some ringtones/message notifications that I'd like to put on my phone, but I can't find them anywhere.
    There's nothing under the folder system or anywhere else I can see.
    Is somebody able to tell me where these sounds are stored on the phone please?
    Thanks and regards,

    If they came with the phone it's possible that Samsung put them in /data/media (i.e. as part of the ROM), which you won't be able to browse without root access.

    If you know the name of the Samsung ringtone you want. Someone may have uploaded it to YouTube, which does sometimes happen, and you might be able to rip or record it from there

    There was a request on AF for a Samsung notification or ringtone a few weeks ago, and it was on YouTube.

    In a pinch, just hold your phone close to hers and record them

    You can try installing Zedge, from the play store. They may have the ringtones available for download.
    Just make sure that you know the names of them...

    Check this folder:

    It will be read only, but I can copy the default ringtones to another location.

    Hmmm can you copy read only files? Did not know you can do this, if that is so.
