    deleting default ringtones, etc?

    Advertisement



    hi all,
    just got my pearl, and so far i am loving it (it has been about 4 years since my last phone upgrade...) anyway, i was just wondering if anyone knows how to delete files in the preloaded media folders? i'd just like to get rid of some of the default ringtones that i'll never use so that i don't have to scroll through all of them to find the file that i want, and also free up some device memory for apps and things...

    thanks!

    These files are locked and cannot be deleted. Sorry part of the operating system. You can try to download and recompile the code with those files but that would take a while check out the developers thread for more info.

    thanks for the response, bbtec!

    Bbtec, but it is simply untrue that preloaded media cannot be deleted and I don't know why people keep insisting on this. The preloaded ringtones and media can be deleted -- see my posts Here and Here.

    Obviously, follow them at your own risk. But feel free to PM me with any questions. It's really not that complicated and does not require "recompiling the Code" or anything like that.
