    I've created some ringtones by going into my sounds directory and holding on the sound I want and telling it to use it as a ringtone.

    Now that several of those selections are in my ringtones, are they there forever or is there a way to delete the ones I want from the phone?

    If not, Can they be deleted from the SD card or are they stored on the phone?

    I figure since SEARCH came up with this thread, I'll necro it because I would like to know the answer to this also.

    Using Astro (or another file manager utility), just go to /sdcard/media/audio/ringtones

    This is while the phone is plugged into my PC correct? When using the file manager app I downloaded on the phone I don't even show a media folder.

    If plugged into your computer and you have your sd card mounted, you must access it from the computer.. you don't need astro as the computer explorer sees it.

    You must "dismount" it before its released for the droid to be able to view it via "astro".

    Either way works, you just can't do both at the same time.

    I've realized this. Is the Media folder one that I should create for organization purposes? I've used myxer for a few mp3's and i can't seem to view them anywhere in the directories of my phone from either my computer or the phone when it is standalone.

    Edit: I've connected my phone to the computer and when i'm exploring it through windows it doesn't have media folder either, and most of the files shown on my computer are empty. None of them contain mp3's or wallpapers I've downloaded.

    Any mp3 dropped in that ringtones folder can be used as a ringtone.

    That's the thing. I have no Ringtones folder to speak of. I have.manually made a media folder for video and music and they work. Can I do the same with the ringtones?

    You can set it up manually as you describe, or you can go to your music player, find the mp3 file you want to use, long hold, and select "Use as Ringtone".

    A good app that will help you with this is RingDroid. It's especially useful if you want to crop the source file in any way.

    There are several apps on the market that will help you manage the ringtones that you've created via RingDroid or "Use song as ringtone". Ring Remover is a simple (free) app that just handles tones created by the "Use song as...", while Ring Commander is a (low-priced) app that lets you arbitrarily hide, restore, repurpose, or delete ringtones. (And everything except "delete" can be done with system ringtones as well, if you find that you are really tired of seeing those Motorola tones cluttering up your list.)

    (Note, however, that DRM protected ringtones -- typically purchased from a website and sent directly to the phone from that site -- are pretty much unmanageable. All you can do is delete all of them in a batch via the method described here.)
