    Hey I'm still new to my phone and I've figured most of it out except for a couple of things. One of them is that my ringtones download to my SD card and they mix in with my music. Assuming it's possible, how can I move them to another folder, or to my phone, or something? Thanks.

    What I did was make a folder called "Android" in the root of the SD card, then a Media folder, then an Audio folder, and then folders for Notifications, Alarms, etc.
    SDCard/Android/Media/Audio/Ringtones
    That's where my ringtones are.
    If the files are put in a Ringtones folder, the music player should not add them as music files.

    Always keep your Ringtones, Notifications separate from your Music files.

    You don't have to create the android folder. You can simply create a media folder, then create the others inside. Putting the media folder in another folder of any name will still work though, but the phone recognizes the media folder and the others and makes the files inside show up accordingly where you want them.

    :D

    I did something similar to this but then my ringtones didn't work and had to download them all over again.

    I made the Android folder on mine to keep it more organized. I know you don't have to. :)

    I make my ringtones myself with RingDroid. They add them as the appropriate files and I can easily find them when I want to use one.

    That's exactly what I want to do, but I don't know how to do it. So how would I go about moving a few dozen ringtones to a new folder?
