Okay, I know how to delete a ringtone, but I tried and it won't go away. This is what happened. I went into the Desktop Manager so I could rename my ringtones that I had downloaded (I hate when the words of the song all run together). When I went into my ringtone file on my phone, it had two ringtones for each sone (ex. I changed Faraway to Far Away and both were listed on my phone). The one that I renamed is the one that works. I tried to delete the old one (Faraway), but it won't delete. It is really irritating me to go into that folder and see two ringtone names for each song (if that makes any sense).
Any ideas how to fix?
Thanks so much!

I take it you are using a media card?
Take all your take ringtone and copy to a directory on the PC, erase the folder ringtones on the media card,
create the folder again, load the ringtones you want. Then do a battery pull with the phone ON,
replace battery after a minute, let the device reeboot 1-3 minutes, The ringtones will have to reindex so about five minutes later look at them and see if the wrong one is gone

Thanks for responding. I am not using a media card. I have downloaded about 7 ringtones from the AT & T site and they work wonderfully. But after renaming them through my Desktop Manager software on my PC, I now have 2 names for each ringtone (old name: Goodfriendandaglass - new name: Good Friend And A Glass). I just figured once renamed it, it would automatically make the change to my phone. It did, but kept the old name too (which doesn't work when played).

So does that resolve the problem for you?
try one other way.
go to the main media screen menu explore -device memory - drill down to ringtones and delete the bad ones.

The easiest answer for me would be "yes you're insane"
I'll look it up, but I don't think there is another way to do it.

Well I guess if I would of read the entire thing, I would of known to just take the battery out! Problem solved! Guess I'm too preoccupied with my kids going back to school tomorrow.
Thanks to all who helped me fix this irritating (if only to me!) problem!!
