    Ringtone changes? Virus?

    I have lookout installed with no errors reported, but every time i restart my phone my ringtones will change: general phone, notification, sms, and even my individual contacts ringtones i select. When this happens, i reset again to what i want them to be. When i restart they AGAIN RANDOMIZE. This is driving me crazy please help!!!

    I haven't heard of this problem before. I doubt that it's a virus. It's more likely related to an app on the phone, or it's a software problem within the phone. Have you installed any new apps recently that would seem to coincide with you having this problem? Or are you using any apps that weren't obtained via the Market?

    Do you happen to have Ringtone Randomizer or any similar app installed?

    Virus? Highly Doubt it.

    Rouge app..Most likely.

    What was installed before this started happing?

    There was a report that if you underclock your phone it will resort to the default ringtone. I wonder if you have a variation of this?

    Are you using custom ringtones or just the stock ones?

    The only app I know that had a randomizer was imusic, and I uninstalled. They are all legit market apps as far as i know, as my phone is unmodded. I have a few ringtone programs, worara, zedge, and ringdroid; as far as i know they just dld them not set or shuffle automatically. I guess Ill delete these one by one to see what happens. Such a weird and random event though lol. Almost funny If I didnt want certain tones for certain things/ppl.

    Wow. Lookout was the problem? I isolated Lookout as the culprit somehow. Uninstalled and reinstalled. I see on comments that another chick had this problem. So weird.

    Once in a while my Droid will go to the default ring. Doesn't happen very often and to me it's not a big deal.

    I have the same issue, the only thing that seems to work is to pull the battery out and put it back in. Mine will not even play my MP3s until I do that. It is very frustrating. I do not have any of the listed software installed.
