    Anyone have any idea why there are duplicate default ringtones showing up on my phone or how to get rid of them? Some of them are even listed up to 4 times.

    Download an app called "SDrescan". Run it and see if the multiple listings are still there.
    It's basically a fresh read of your SD card...

    Have you looked on the SD card to see if there are multiple files?

    Yeah I did, there's only one file for each ringtone.

    Gotta ask.... Have you tried powering down, pulling the battery, and then power back on?

    Yeah I tried that too. It must be some app i installed screwed something up. It's just too bad we can't edit and remove default ringtones manually somehow.

    Same problem, no solution yet, just a little more info: this happened after rooting and going to BB. Dups don't exist on the sd card as far as I can see.

    Think you can use root explorer to find the dupes and erase them?
