    Let me know if I'm wrong.. but I was using a song as a ringtone that I added by mounting my droid to the computer then decided to delete it after a day. I got a call and noticed it was not a ringtone I've heard before. I looked in phone ringtone menu and nothing was selected. I'm assuming its a hidden ringtone. I still cannot find where it is located and the name of it. I been searching threads about this but have not found anything on it. If you got an answer for me let me know please.

    I just realized that it may not be a hidden ringtone. The name is "default" but you will only be able to get this ringtone if u delete the ringtone u were using. You will not see it under settings>sound&display>phoneringtones. If u go to phone ringtones nothing is selected and there is no choice for "default." The only way u can see and select "default" ringtone is if u go to a contact and choose a ringtone for that contact.

    EDIT: This is wrong. default is just the ringtone u chose under sound&display>phoneringtones

    I've seen this too when you delete a ringtone that's is selected. I believe when this happens is uses the fallbackringtone.ogg found in the framework-res.apk file in the /res/raw directory, but I haven't confirmed that for sure.

    For some reason lately it doesn't play a ringtone when my wife calls but it does for everyone else. I assume this is because I deleted or renamed her ringtone but I wonder why I didn't get this "default" ringtone that you got? hmmm

    Edit: I must fix this before it gets me in trouble :icon_eek:

    The framework-res.apk is a system file in the Android operating system on your phone. It contains an audio file (fallbackringtone.ogg) that if for any reason, your selected ringtone is deleted before you actually select a new one, the phone will use this audio file as your default ringtone.

    Edit: Windows can't play .ogg files by default. So if you want to listen to that file, which I attached in my last post. You'll have to install a player that can.

    speaking of ringtones, I have a folder on my SdCard called ringtones yet the mp3 in there do NOT show up when I press Menu>sounds>ringtones. and if I long press the file and tell it to use as ringtone it just ends up in my Menu>sounds>ringtones as this funny little square symbol

    to make them automatically show up in ringtones they need to be in:

    /sdcard/media/ringtones/

    Any mp3s in there will show up in the ringtones list without being added to it manually.

    hmmm interesting.. mine show up. They are thrown in alphabetically with all the other stock ringtones. They aren't at the top or bottom or separate or anything.

    Found the problem. I took an MP3 and used Ringdroid to clip it and saved it.

    it put it in Sdcard/media/audio/ringtones and that put it in my stock ringtones so I am able to pick from those :)

    I didn't have an Audio folder and that is why my ringtones weren't showing up
