Custom Alarms, Ringtones, Notifications Storage

2020-02-06, 23:50 PM

My wife’s Moto G5 (XT1676), Android 8.1.0 needed a reboot. Since then there are no standard Moto ringtones available. I tried downloading her favourite ringtone (Peter Gunn - MP3). This file now sits in “Downloads”, “Ringtones” and “Audio / Ringtones”. There are no other audio files. Problem is that an incoming voice call only gets a simple “ding” tone, yet incoming SMS’s and email notifications get the full Peter Gunn music. In “Settings/ Sound”, Peter Gunn MP3 appears in “Phone Ringtone”, “Default Notification Sound” and “Default Alarm Sound”. I can’t delete these. Before the last reboot I deleted all copies of Peter Gunn MP3 and it still produced a notification tune. How do I install “Peter Gunn MP3” as her voice ringtone and set notifications to a simple tone?

So I got the SMS notifications and alarm to work by installing alternative MP3 sounds. BUT incoming calls persists with just a "dong" each 3 seconds.

Couple of things to try,

 

Phone Settings>Apps > Phone >Storage and Clear Data and Cache and then,

 

Press and hold the power Button long enough for the phone to reboot. This emulates taking the Battery out and can clear these glitches.

 

 

HTH :)

Ok. Let's try another way. This is a free Pixel Ringtone pack app,

 

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.soundpicker&hl=en_GB

 

Install that and see if you can change the Default tone to one of them?

 

PS

My default call ringtone is an .mp3 of AC/DC's ,"Back in black<GRIN> :D
