Hi Rudy80,

 

Thanks for posting. When you say external ringtones, were these mp3 files? Aside from the ones you removed were you able to set the same format file as your ringtone?

Yes, they were MP3 files.  I had uninstalled the apps, but noticed the ringtones I had used were still in the ringtones listings.  I opened up the files page and deleted them there along with the apps that were somehow still there.  The ringtones would play except when there was an incoming call, so they were useless.

Hi Rudy80,

 

Did you delete it from the Ringtone folder? If it's still showing in the ringtone list, try clearing the cache and data of your Settings (Settings > Apps > Settings > Storage > Clear Cache and Data). I would also suggest cleaning the junk files on the Files app.

Yes, I cleared cache and junk files when I did the deletes.
