    So today I upgraded my wife from the Droid 1 to the Razor. She has ringtones for ALOT of her contacts that she has downloaded from time to time over the last two years. She wants those ringtones on her new phone but I cannot find where they are on her old phone.

    Using Astro I looked in every folder on both the SD card and the phone's drive. I even did a search using Astro for about five of the ringtones. They cannot be located! The only ringtones I found are on /system/media/audio/ringtones and they are all stock tones.. They are not there or in any of the folders under /system/media/audio. I have spent an hour searching.

    Does anyone know where they are stored? I can see them when I set a ringtone for a contact but they are hidden on the phone somewhere.

    Probably with some videos I lost a while back.
    Some things just...disappear.
    All I can say is, look again, but harder.
    Every once in a while I think I see a folder I didn't look in before, but alas, no videos.
    I'll never quit looking.

    I don't think so because I can see the ringtones when choosing a ringtone for a contact and they play when that contact calls so they must be on the phone someplace!

    search with a file manager in both the device (local) and the sd card for a file ending .ogg most ringtones are ogg files.

    search is a good idea if you know ringtone's file name.
